Three Questions to Determine if you Can Claim for your Whiplash Injury in Kirknewton
Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Kirknewton? If so, you will probably be wondering whether you are entitled to compensation. A lot of people find this process somewhat confusing, as there is a wealth of conflicting information on the Internet. Nonetheless, you generally only need to answer three questions in order to determine whether you have the basis for a successful compensation claim. These questions are as follows…
- Was the accident your fault?
This is the first question you need to ask yourself. The injury must have occurred because of someone else’s error or negligence. You cannot expect to claim if the whiplash injury in Kirknewton occurred through your own fault.
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
It is so important to make sure you see a doctor straight after the injury. A lot of people fail to do this because they think they can cope with the injury themselves. This is because whiplash tends to be a minor injury. Nonetheless, not only is it important to get the proper treatment, but you will not be able to claim if you do not see a doctor. Why? Well, there will be no proof that you have even sustained whiplash.
- Did the accident occur within the last three years?
Last but not least, the third and final thing you need to ask yourself is when the incident occurred. If it happened over three years ago you will not be able to claim. A lot of people do not realise it but there is actually a three-year time limit on virtually all personal injury claims. Court proceedings must be issued within this period. There is no time to waste!
