Hurt in an accident or incident?
No one likes to think of being hurt but some of us make provision for this, just in case the most awful thing happens and we are unable to provide financially for ourselves or our family.
However, things happen in life when we least expect them and luckily, these instances are not only rare but are not life-threatening either.
To claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Leintwardine, the injury does not have to be life-threatening or serious to the point that it will affect you for the rest of your life. Some people, however, who have suffered whiplash will tell you the pain and immobility is all-encompassing and life-changing in the short term.
What you need to know about claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Leintwardine…
Many people assume it is easy to claim compensation, fuelled by reports in the media of people receiving hundreds or thousands of pounds in compensation. There are 3 factors that must ALL be present in every claim for personal injuries, including a whiplash injury in Leintwardine:
NOT your fault – enshrined in UK law is the fact that if you were hurt as the result of an accident or incident that was NOT your fault then you are entitled to pursue compensation from the person liable or responsible for the accident.
Traditionally, whiplash is associated with car accidents that included a hefty impact (not necessarily a high speed crash), but you can also sustain this kind of injury in a slip or fall.
If you think someone else is responsible for your accident, and hence your whiplash injury in Leintwardine, you could have a claim.
Medical help – this is when many people are disappointed to find out that their claim is not eligible, which can be down to the lack of medical advice. If you suffered any injury, including a whiplash injury in Leintwardine, as well as emotional distress – and you intend claiming compensation – you must seek medical advice. This can be from your own doctor or from the local accident and emergency department.
Time keeps ticking… – and finally, the third factor that must be present in any claim is that you are bringing this legal action within 3 years of the date of the accident or incident in which you received your injury.
