Have you sustained a whiplash injury in Maybole?
If you were walking past a building that was being demolished, a piece of falling masonry could have hit you on the head and caused you a whiplash injury in Maybole among, of course, other more serious injuries. If you were injured in such an accident, you may be entitled to claim for your injury if you can prove that the owner of the demolition firm had been negligent, in that he or she had not carried out a thorough risk assessment before the demolition work began. A whiplash injury in Maybole may also have been caused by a car accident, or being punched in the head.
In order to make a claim for an accident such as the one described above, you would need an experienced personal injury lawyer whose expertise lies in dealing with claims that arise out of accidents in public places.

How long do I have to make a claim?
If you can prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, you would normally expect to have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim. However, you should not simply assume that this is the case for your accident, as different types have various limitation periods. This means that you may have a much shorter period of time in which to make your claim. If you miss the deadline for filing a claim for your injuries, you have forfeited your right to do so. Therefore, you should find out as soon as you can exactly how much time you have in which to file your claim. You can do this by contacting a firm of personal injury lawyers, or by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of the freephone numbers that you will find below.
