The town of Farnborough in north-east Hampshire takes its name from ‘Ferneberga’ meaning ‘Fern Hill.’ With a population of 65,034 in 2011, the town is known for its links to aviation, with the Farnborough Airshow attracting thousands of visitors each year. If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Farnborough, perhaps while travelling to an event or even whilst commuting to work, you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation, if somebody else is at fault for your accident. But there is a three-year time limit in place for all claims, so if you want to claim compensation, you’ll need the services of a personal injury lawyer shortly after your accident.
How does whiplash happen?
Whiplash is the most commonly experienced injury after a road traffic accident and whilst it may not be that serious an injury, it can still be incredibly painful and debilitating; for example you may be unable to go to work or take part in sports or your usual leisure activities. Whiplash happens as a result of the head and neck being suddenly jolted forwards and then back – most commonly in a road accident – causing neck pain which often radiates to the shoulder, head and upper back. In severe cases physiotherapy may be necessary, but most people recover within a matter of weeks.
However you may be unable to return to work until your injury has healed, depending on your job. In some cases, pain from whiplash can continue and further medical treatment may be necessary. If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Farnborough, you could be entitled to compensation not only for your pain and suffering, but also for any loss of earnings after your accident.
