The village of Farleigh in Surrey is located 4.5 miles south-east of Croydon and just over 13 miles from London. Once a rural village which relied on farming for its economy, today it is a commuter base for the surrounding area. With so many people commuting to work in Croydon and London itself, it’s perhaps inevitable that accidents on the roads here can and do happen. One of the most common types of injuries to be sustained in a car accident is whiplash, and if you have suffered a whiplash injury in Farleigh, you might find you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident.
How did your accident happen?
Whiplash is an injury to the neck which occurs when the head and neck are jolted suddenly forwards and then back. Whilst it’s not a serious injury, it is painful and can be debilitating, stopping you from going to work or taking part in your usual activities. Road traffic accidents are generally the result of driver error, but it could be that another driver has caused your accident. For example, if the other driver was speeding or tailgating your vehicle in wet or icy weather, they could cause a rear-end collision.
Drivers falling asleep at the wheel are also responsible for a number of accidents on the UK’s roads, whilst being distracted at the wheel by your mobile phone, car stereo or something else is another common cause of accidents. If somebody else is responsible for your whiplash injury in Farleigh, you’re entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
