Market Harborough, as its name suggests, is a market town which is situated in Leicestershire.
Whiplash injury in Market Harborough
If you had been in the king’s retinue while he was hunting in Rockingham Forest, you may have been looking over your shoulder and not seen the overhanging branch which you hit at a gallop, knocking yourself off your horse. You may have suffered a whiplash injury in Market Harborough, if the town had been in existence then. There weren’t, of course, personal injury lawyers in the Middle Ages, and certainly there were no personal injury compensation claims to file. Even if you got knocked out of your saddle by a low branch today, you probably couldn’t make a claim for a whiplash injury in Market Harborough, as you should have seen the branch and ducked; your own negligence caused your accident. You could, on the other hand, make a successful claim for a whiplash injury in Market Harborough if you and your personal injury lawyer can prove beyond doubt that another person was to blame for the accident.
How long do I have to make my claim?
If you were injured in an accident that happened in the British Isles, you would normally expect to have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim. However, not all accidents and injuries have a three-year limitation period: you may have to claim for your accident and injury within nine months of the date of the accident, or perhaps you have two years in which to file a claim.
