    Whiplash injury on the Isle of Barra


    Have you been hurt? Thought about claiming compensation…?

    Many people are hurt, unfortunately, in accidents across the UK every day. Thankfully, the majority of these are not serious, with many people escaping serious injury. BUT, there are some people who are hurt, such as those suffering from a whiplash injury on the Isle of Barra.

    If you have suffered whiplash, then you may have a claim for compensation but there are some questions we need to ask first…

    Tell us about the accident. Was it your fault?

    Some accidents are just that – an accident. BUT, there are occasions when people are hurt through no fault of their own and people who have suffered a whiplash injury on Isle of Barra could be some of those people.

    And so, before you start making a compensation claim, you need to be sure that the accident was NOT your fault.

    When did you have the accident?

    The majority of people who make a claim for compensation for a whiplash injury on Isle of Barra do so within a few weeks or months of receiving the injury.

    This could be because this type of injury is, in the majority of cases, is a short term one – in other words, it goes away without leaving a last legacy within a few weeks. However, there are some people who suffer from severe whiplash injury on the Isle of Barra – they can be left in pain for many, many months (sometimes years!) and a very small minority of people can be paralysed from this kind of injury.

    But, what you must bear in mind is that you must make a claim for compensation for any injury within 3 years of the date of your accident.

    Who diagnosed your whiplash injury on the Isle of Barra?

    Some people attempt to make a claim without having their injuries formally diagnosed and this means that their claim cannot proceed.

    Whiplash is not necessarily a difficult injury to diagnose and the majority of claimants need medical help with the pain. Over-the-counter pain relief products are often not strong enough to deal with the pain!

    Hence, for your whiplash injury on the Isle of Barra claim to be in with a chance of being successful, you must have received diagnosis and treatment from a qualified medical professional such as a GP or from a doctor etc. at an accident and emergency department.
