    Whiplash injury in Baltasound


    If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Baltasound and you intend raising a claim for compensation, you can use our services at AAH to speed your claim through. We’re one of the U.K.’s favourite injury claim solicitors, thanks to the fact that the industry-leading no win no fee compensation claim service we provide is both simple to use and gets quick results.

    Baltasound’s claim to fame

    Baltasound on the island of Unst in the Shetlands is only a small settlement, but it stakes claim to the fact that it has the most northerly Post Office anywhere in the UK. With the limited number of inhabitants, whiplash injury is not a common affair, but like any accident, it can happen without warning from time to time, and when it does, providing the blame for the accident or injury is attributable to someone other than yourself, you’re entitled both legally and morally to claim compensation.

    Bobby’s Bus Shelter

    A rather nice quirk about the island of Unst is the bus shelter just outside the village of Baltasound, known locally as Bobby’s Bus Shelter.

    The shelter owes its name to Bobby Macaulay, a young schoolboy who used the bus shelter to store his bicycle when he caught the bus to go to school. It’s refurbished every year by local residents who provide a sofa, a TV, computer, and other basic comforts. Each year it’s redecorated to reflect what is happening in Bobby’s life. For example in 2009 it was repainted in pink in an acknowledgement of the fact that Bobby worked for the Breast Cancer Charity.

    Any whiplash injury in Baltasound usually happens on the A960

    The main road here on Unst is the A960, and this is where the odd whiplash injury in Baltasound usually takes place when there is a road traffic accident. Providing that the person who sustains the injury is not actually responsible for the accident, then he/she will be entitled to raise a personal injury claim seeking financial compensation. In order to validate the claim however, the injury victim is advised to report the accident to the police, obtain an accident report reference number, and see a medical practitioner to confirm that a whiplash injury has been sustained, and to obtain medical proof by way of certification.
