    Whiplash injury in Polperro


    Cornwall is a very popular destination for holidaymakers, and Polperro is a charming place to visit.  The only trouble with going on holiday is, many people get so excited that they fail to take account of the possibility that accidents might happen, including a whiplash injury in Polperro.

    Whiplash injury in Polperro: what to do

    Whilst on holiday, there are any number of situations that you might encounter in which whiplash is a possibility.  You could be driving through the countryside, you could be walking on a footpath, or you could be enjoying a spot of horse riding.

    If an accident happens during any of those activities, it could involve sudden impact, and that means that your head could jerk and pull on the tendons and ligaments in your neck.  Some time later, you discover that you have a stiff neck, and you are in some pain.  It’s tender and you can’t move it properly. This is whiplash.

    How to avoid whiplash when you’re on holiday

    The best thing to do is be as aware as possible of your surroundings, and pay attention to potential hazards.  Look out for potholes on public footpaths and cycle lanes, and keep an eye out for any slip hazards, such as newly polished tiled floors.

    Of course, you can’t take account of absolutely everything, and there is still the possibility that you will end up with a whiplash injury in Polperro.  If the accident that caused your injury was someone else’s fault, then you could be eligible to claim compensation.

    Qualifying to claim

    A pothole on a footpath or cycle lane might be there because someone has failed to fill it in, maybe even after repeated reports to the local council responsible for the path’s maintenance.

    A slip and fall could be avoided if only someone had put a warning sign there about the wet floor.

    In such cases, you are probably eligible to claim compensation.  If you wish, you can check out whether this is the case, by taking Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test.
