    Whiplash Injury in Llanelli


    Llanelli is a town on the banks of the Loughor estuary in Camarthenshire, quite close to both Swansea and Camarthen. It lays claim to being the most haunted town in Wales, with people who are paranormal investigators saying that there is a lot of negative energy in the town. Given the unemployment rate perhaps rationalists might say this is hardly surprising, but ghost stories abound.

    Whiplash injury in Llanelli

    It is possible to get whiplash injury in Llanelli and, of course anywhere else in the UK, in accidents other than road traffic ones. If you slip and fall, you might jolt your head as you fall, and apart from sustaining whiplash injury in Llanelli, you might also fracture a limb. Perhaps you were startled by a ghost, or maybe there was an obstacle in your path which you were unable to see because of poor street lighting. To make a personal injury compensation claim for whiplash injury in Llanelli, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you suffered your injury was not your fault. If you went to a personal injury solicitor and told him or her that you were injured in an accident caused by a ghost, the solicitor probably wouldn’t believe you. However, if you slip, trip or fall in the street, you may be able to prove that the local authority, which has a duty to maintain roads and streets, were to blame for your accident, in which case you could file a personal injury compensation claim.

    How long do I have to file a claim?

    Generally you have three years from the date of having an accident in which to make a claim for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. However, as there are some accidents with a shorter limitation period, it would be wise if you found out exactly how long you have in which to file your particular claim. In some instances you only have nine months to file a claim.

    How much compensation can I get for whiplash?

    It is difficult to predict how much compensation you would get for any kind of injury, as it depends on its severity. Occasionally people suffer from chronic whiplash injury and they may never fully recover. It can cause depression and anxiety and prevent them from having a normal life. They might lose their jobs because of it, and all these factors would be taken into consideration when compensation was awarded.
