    Whiplash injury in Loanhead


    Loanhead is a small town in Midlothian, Scotland, which was founded on the paper, coal and shale mining industries. In 1669 it was granted a charter to hold a weekly market and an annual fair. If you visit the town today you will see a memorial to the fifteen men killed at one of the neighbouring collieries in different accidents with the inscription “this is the true price of coal.” Any kind of mining is a hazardous occupation and many miners lost their lives in pits all over the country. Some of the survivors suffered from serious illnesses caused by the bad working conditions they laboured in. In the early days there were no personal injury compensation claims to file and if you were hit on the head and suffered whiplash injury Loanhead, even if you could prove the accident was the fault of another person, you would not have been able to file a personal injury compensation claim as there were none to file.

    Whiplash injury in Loanhead

    You may think that you can only get a whiplash injury in Loanhead if you were rear-ended in a collision, but this is not the case. A boxer can get a whiplash injury in Loanhead, for example, if hit on the head with a violent punch. You can also have a whiplash injury in Loanhead if a heavy object falls on your head. Basically whiplash is caused when the head jerks violently from side to side or forwards and backwards. It is a neck sprain with the ligaments and tendons in the neck being bruised or otherwise damaged.

    Can I claim for whiplash injury in Loanhead?

    You can claim for any injury if you can prove that the accident in which you sustained it was not your fault, but was caused by another person. That is the crucial point to remember if you think you might have a personal injury compensation claim to make. Although the British government has been taking steps to crack down on bogus whiplash claims, you can still make a claim as long as you have a genuine case of whiplash which has not been exaggerated. You will probably be asked to undergo a second medical examination which you will have to pay for, but if your injury is a genuine one, you should have no problem.
