Marlow is a town on the River Thames in Buckinghamshire. It was formerly called Great or Chipping Marlow, and is the site of an annual regatta, held in June. There are also Dragon Boat Races held at this time, as well as other forms of entertainment to be enjoyed. In September there’s the annual music festival, and a whole host of other events. If you are a resident of Marlow, you may have been evacuated from your home in 2014 due to the storms and subsequent flooding of the Thames, and if you were, hopefully you weren’t the victim of an unfortunate accident in which you received a whiplash injury in Marlow.
Whiplash injury in Marlow
If you have a whiplash injury in Marlow, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident in which you sustained your injury was not your fault. You need to be able to prove that another person, definitely not you was responsible for the whiplash injury in Marlow, if you wish to make a claim. You may have to have a second medical examination to determine whether or not yours is a genuine case of whiplash, but if it is, then you will be able to claim compensation.
How long do I have to make my claim?
Although you usually have three years from the date of any accident to make a claim for injuries, this is not always so, as it depends on the type of accident you were involved in. You should not assume that you have three years to file a claim, as there are some accidents and injuries that you must claim for within nine months of the date of the accident. You should contact a firm of personal injury lawyers close to where you live, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers which are below. You wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to claim compensation to which you are entitled, would you?
How much could I get for my injuries?
No one can reliably tell you how much compensation you might be awarded if your personal injury compensation claim is successful because there are different degrees of severity of injury. Your personal injury lawyer would need to have your medical records and do some research into how much compensation has recently been awarded to people involved in similar accidents to yours. They would also need to consult the Judicial College’s guideline amounts of compensation that can be given for different injuries.
