Eday is one of the islands of Orkney, which are located to the north of the Scottish mainland. It is the ninth largest island of the archipelago. There are various well-preserved Neolithic tombs, as well as evidence of Bronze Age settlement and the remains of a Norse-era castle, which make the island popular with historians and interested tourists.
Although this area can be interesting and beautiful to explore, it can be all too easy to suffer an accident or injury in rural areas such as this. Unfamiliarity with an area coupled with poor maintenance can often lead to nasty injuries, such as a whiplash injury in Eday. Anything from a trip over a broken pavement to a fall due to some unruly undergrowth can leave you badly injured and in need of medical attention.
What should you do if you suffer a whiplash injury in Eday?
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 Eday was 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.
If you are badly injured due to your whiplash injury in Eday, 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 suffers trauma due to a sudden jolt. The delicate tendons and ligaments of the neck suffer damage, leading to pain and decreased mobility. It is important to stay as mobile as possible to decrease the damage, and seek help straightaway.
