North Ferriby is a village in Yorkshire on the banks of the River Humber. It has its place in maritime history as three boats were discovered over the years in the muddy banks of the river which have been dated and are believed to be from the Bronze Age, making them more than 4,000 years old.
North Ferriby would have been a quiet place up until the 18th century, with the main industry being that of agriculture, but it became a fashionable place for the wealthy Hull merchants who built several elegant mansions in the village. The advent of the railway to North Ferriby meant that they could commute to Hull easily and quickly by train.
Have you had a whiplash injury in North Ferriby?
There are many ways in which you could have had a whiplash injury in North Ferriby, although in most people’s minds you have one because you have been involved in a car crash. Of course, this is the most common way of getting a whiplash injury, but there are other types of accident in which you can sustain a whiplash injury.
If you receive a blow to the head, for example, it could give you a whiplash injury for that matter. If you have sustained a whiplash injury in North Ferriby, you may be considering making a personal injury compensation claim and to be eligible to do so you must be able to prove that the accident that was the cause of your injury was not your fault, but someone else’s.
If you were travelling on a train that was derailed, or one that collided with another train, then it is conceivable that you received a whiplash injury. Luckily train accidents do not occur frequently and when they do, people are not usually seriously hurt, such as when two trains crashed into each other at Norwich station in July 2013.
Trains can be derailed if some kind of obstacle is on the tracks, for example a vehicle, a fallen tree branch or tree, or a pile of wet leaves. If you are a passenger on a train and are injured in an accident, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the train’s operators. You would normally have three years from the date of the accident to make your claim.
