The town of Eastwood is a former coal mining town, located in the Broxtowe district of Nottinghamshire, England. It is the birthplace of novelist D.H. Lawrence, and as a result, tourism has become increasingly important as the town in recent years. His birthplace is now a museum, and the “Blue Line Trail,” a painted line on the pavement, guides visitors around eleven sites of local interest including three of Lawrence’s homes.
However, unfamiliarity with an area coupled with poor maintenance can often lead to nasty injuries. Anything from a trip over a broken pavement to a fall due to some unruly undergrowth could result in a whiplash injury in Eastwood.
What should you do if you suffer a whiplash injury in Eastwood?
It is important to be careful in rural areas. However, when an accident occurs that is not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline we know that sometimes an accident just isn’t your fault, and we can help set things straight again.
If your whiplash injury in Eastwood occurred in the last three years, you should check today and see if you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible. Such injury claims include whiplash injuries sustained due to:
- A fall on a broken pavement
- A trip due to being pushed or jostled
- A slip down a crowded public stairwell
If you suffer a whiplash injury in Eastwood in such an instance, you should seek medical attention immediately as well as gather statements from any witnesses if possible. Do your best to photograph the scene of your accident (even on a camera phone) to add further weight to your claim.
Whiplash occurs when the neck is jolted suddenly in one direction, and results in damage to the ligaments and tendons of the neck. It can be quite serious and it is important to keep your neck as mobile as possible to prevent it from getting worse.
