Shall I make a claim for my whiplash injury in Fleggburgh, or am I wasting my time?
Many people who suffer a whiplash injury in Fleggburgh face a dilemma. Should they make a compensation claim or not? This post is here to help you find the answers you are searching for. After all, nobody wants to waste their time and money on making a personal injury case if there is very little chance it is going to be a successful one.
Firstly, one of the reasons people are so unsure about whether or not to proceed with a claim is that whiplash is a very broad injury. It can occur in many different ways. Moreover, the symptoms are extremely varied – some of them are severe and others are minor. Nonetheless, it doesn’t actually matter how you have sustained a whiplash injury in Fleggburgh; what matters is whether the injury was your fault or not. If it was your fault, you will not be able to get compensation, and thus there is certainly no point proceeding with the idea.
Aside from this, you will also need to prove the following to be true:
- The injury occurred within the last three years; and
- You received medical attention for your injuries.
There is a time limit on all personal injury cases. If your whiplash injury in Fleggburgh occurred over three years ago, it is extremely unlikely that you will be able to get compensation. Moreover, you need to have been medically diagnosed with whiplash. If there is no proof of this injury, how do you except to get any compensation for it?
