    Whiplash injury in Charnock Richard


    Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Charnock Richard motorway services in between junctions 27 and 28 on the M6 motorway? If so you’re almost certainly not the first, nor are you likely to be the last.

    Notorious venues for whiplash injury

    Motorway services are notorious for small “shunts” that result in whiplash injury. It’s hardly surprising in many ways because the people driving into the services are often in a rush to spend a penny; are very hungry and thinking about what they’re going to eat, or are anxious to check the progress of their journey, and their minds are often not fully focused on the road ahead. It only takes one moment of recklessness, carelessness, or neglect, and before you know it a collision takes place in which a whiplash injury is sustained.

    Genuine whiplash injury victims may find the going tougher

    Unfortunately, the high number of fraudulent claims currently being registered has not only given the UK a bad name, but also means that genuine whiplash injury victims may well find it harder in the future to obtain the compensation to which they’re both legally and morally entitled. With nearly one new whiplash injury personal injury claim being registered every minute, the UK has been dubbed the “Whiplash Injury, Capital of Europe.”

    Lining up the necessary proofs for a whiplash injury in Charnock Richard services

    In future, substantiating a claim for whiplash injury beyond any reasonable doubt will mean ensuring that you have the necessary proofs to back up your claim.

    With instances like a whiplash injury in Charnock Richard services, you may well find that the police are already on site, in which case it will be a good idea to ensure they’re made aware of the incident. They will then be able to give you a reference number for the road traffic accident incident, which you’ll be able to use later if you are indeed going to raise a claim for compensation.

    Getting a whiplash injury diagnosis from your GP

    The other thing you’ll need to do is visit your GP to confirm that you have indeed suffered a whiplash injury, and to obtain the necessary medical proof, once again, that can be used later if and when you instigate a claim.
