    Whiplash injury in Lochearnhead


    Lochearnhead is a village situated at the western end of Loch Earn in Scotland. The village is popular with people who enjoy water sports and fishing. There must have been people living in the area since the Iron Age, when the crannog, the man-made island in Loch Earn was built. Lochearnhead expanded with the advent of the railways and because Sir Walter Scott, the novelist, made the Trossachs popular with tourists. Queen Victoria apparently changed horses in the village on 10th September 1842 while on her way from Taymouth to Drummond castle. On September 6th 1869 she visited the hotel there in order to call on Sir Malcolm and Lady Helen Macgregor.

    Whiplash injury in Lochearnhead

    If you are fishing at Lochearnhead, it is possible that as you are casting your line, you do so a little too enthusiastically, stumble backwards over a rock or stone and fall, jolting your neck violently. This could cause a whiplash injury in Lochearnhead, but you would be unable to make a personal injury compensation claim for such an injury because it would not have been anyone’s fault but yours.

    However, if you were hit on the head at the Lochearnhead Highland Games, you may be entitled to make a claim for your whiplash injury in Lochearnhead, either against the competitor who may have acted recklessly, or against the organisers of the event if it can be proven that they had failed to conduct a thorough risk assessment before the Games began.

    If you thought that you can only get a whiplash injury in Lochearnhead in a car crash, you would be wrong.

    Making a claim for an injury sustained in an accident

    To make a successful personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident, you must be able to prove without a doubt that you were not at fault, but that the accident was caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness. After all, there must be another person from whom you can claim damages for your injury.
