Has an accident left you with a whiplash injury in Solihull?
If you live in Solihull in the West Midlands, you may have been involved in an accident in which you sustained a whiplash injury, and perhaps other types of injury as well. If so, you might now be wondering if you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. Perhaps you were involved in a road traffic accident, although this is not the only way you might have sustained a whiplash injury in Solihull.
If you have a blow to the head, this can cause a whiplash injury. Perhaps you play rugby and got your injury when you were tackled in a way that was against the rules. If you fell and landed awkwardly your head may have been jerked violently from side to side, and so you ended up with a whiplash injury. You may be eligible to file a claim if you sustained your injury in this way.
You may have been walking along the street when a hanging basket fell on your head, and again this too could have resulted in a whiplash injury in Solihull. You could be eligible to make a claim against the owner of the basket and the property on which it was hanging.
Can I make a claim for my injuries?
If you can prove (with the help of a personal injury lawyer) that you were not to blame for your accident and also prove that another person was to blame for it, then you might be eligible to make a claim. If you need the help of a specialist lawyer who works on a no win, no fee basis, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
If you sustained you whiplash injury in Solihull in a car accident, then the police should have been called to the accident scene. They are obliged to investigate road traffic accidents when people have been injured in them. When they wrap up their investigations, they write an accident report and this is necessary as supporting evidence if you proceed with a personal injury compensation claim.
Of course, when you sustain an injury in an accident, you should seek immediate medical treatment. If you don’t, your injury could become much worse and also failure to seek immediate medical attention after an accident could jeopardise your claim.
