Whiplash injury in Market Rasen
If you enjoy the National Hunt season in Market Rasen, you might have seen jockeys who have sustained a whiplash injury in Market Rasen after falling at a fence. Whiplash can occur in any accident when the neck jerks in two opposite directions extremely quickly. A jockey may or may not be able to claim personal injury compensation for a whiplash injury in Market Rasen, as to make a successful claim you have to be able to prove that the accident was the fault of another person. If another jockey and horse collided into your mount, you may be able to prove, with the help of an experienced personal injury compensation claims lawyer, that you were not to blame for your whiplash injury in Market Rasen, in which case you may be eligible to file a claim.
How much compensation could I receive?
No one can accurately predict how much compensation you could receive for any injury. The Judicial College has set out guidelines which personal injury lawyers can consult, but the amount you receive will depend on the severity of your injury. For example, if you have a serious case of whiplash, you could expect to receive between £6,380 and £20,185, while for a minor whiplash injury compensation would be in the range of £3,520 to £6,380 if you are expected to recover from it fully within two years. If you are expected to recover fully within a year, then you could expect to receive between £1,705 and £3,520.
If you have to take time off work, you may also be compensated for loss of earnings. If you cannot pursue a hobby or sport that you used to enjoy before your accident, you may also be entitled to claim for loss of amenity, or loss of quality of life.
