    Whiplash Injury in Martock


    In Daniel Defoe’s day, when travelling was done by horse and carriage or coach, one could still have received a whiplash injury in Martock if the carriage was upended because a horse was spooked, or if a wheel came off. Nowadays, most people associate whiplash with car accidents, although you can sustain the injury in any type of accident in which your head jerks violently. If you suffer a whiplash injury in Martock, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident was not your fault.

    How long do I have to make a claim?

    If your accident happened in the UK, you will normally have three years in which to make a claim, although don’t assume this is the case for your particular accident. You really need to find out how long you have to make your claim, which you can do by contacting a firm of personal injury lawyers, or by contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline. You will find our freephone numbers below.

    Accidents and injuries with two years to claim

    If you sustain an injury in an accident that you can prove was not your fault at an airport in most countries in the world (the country must be a signatory of the Montreal Convention), you would have two years in which to make a claim. Similarly, if you have an accident while in the air or at sea, you also only have two years in which to make your claim.

    If you sustain injuries while a crime is in progress, you also only have two years to file a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
