    Whiplash injury in South Somerset


    By far and away the most common form of personal injury that arises from road traffic accidents that were not people’s fault involve whiplash injuries. A whiplash injury in South Somerset will occur when a person’s head is thrown in one direction or the other with considerable force after an impact accident, causing damage to the soft tissue in the neck. But this is not to say that whiplash injuries only occur in road traffic accidents. Whiplash injuries can occur whenever the head is forced back in an accident involving an impact.

    If you’ve sustained a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, there will be a chance that you might well be able to retain the services of a top 100% no win no fee law firm with a view to seeking compensation for what happened to you. You will not need to have been involved in a road traffic accident. If you have medical proof that you have indeed suffered a whiplash injury in an accident that was not your fault, you might well be in line for a compensation payout.

    A whiplash injury in South Somerset

    Perhaps you were out for a walk on your local playing fields passing by your town’s non-league football team putting in a practice session. If you were to be hit by an errant football in the head without warning, you could well suffer a whiplash injury for which you might be able to take some form of action over.

    Maybe you suffered a whiplash injury after tripping on an upturned paving stone on a pavement in your town centre. There will be a chance that you might not even notice anything was wrong at first, as the symptoms of a whiplash injury can take some time to come on, a few days in some cases. Nevertheless, under these circumstances, you might well be able to take action against the local authority that was responsible for the stretch of pavement in question if it could be proved that the offending uneven flooring was responsible for your suffering.
