Whiplash injury in Loch Lomond

Businesswoman wearing neck brace

Loch Lomond is the second largest Scottish loch after Loch Ness, and it has a lot of legends and myths attached to it. There are more than thirty islands in Loch Lomond, some of which are crannogs, or man-made islands built to erect dwellings on.

Legends of Loch Lomond

Did you know that there have been sightings of a monster in Loch Lomond? It has been described as being like a crocodile, but it is rarely sighted. In 1997 people began to report that a crocodile-like beastie was eating the ducks on the loch. There have been no scientific investigations to discover what monster, if any, is lurking in the depths of Loch Lomond.

Perhaps the monster of Loch Lomond is a kelpie, a horse-like creature with a dripping mane, which is how you can distinguish one from a friendly horse. Their skin has a glue-like quality to it and if you touch it, you stick to it and it carries you into the loch and eats you. There’s a legend which says that in the 11th century a kelpie managed to get five children on its back, but a sixth ran away and it chased the boy all around Loch Lomond’s eastern shore, before it eventually caught up with him. The lad tried to push the kelpie away, but four of his fingers stuck to it, so he cut them off with his knife and so escaped. His friends were not so lucky.

Whiplash injury in Loch Lomond

If you were running away from a kelpie, or the Loch Lomond monster and fell, or hit your head on a low tree branch while running at speed, you may get a whiplash injury in Loch Lomond. You can’t, of course, make a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Loch Lomond in such circumstances, as you have to be able not only to prove that an accident in which you were injured was not your fault, but also you must demonstrate that another person was to blame.

If you got a whiplash injury in Loch Lomond because you had been involved in a car accident while driving around the loch and you could prove that it had not been your fault, you might then be able to make a successful claim for any injuries you sustained.
