Whiplash Injury in Mayfair


Mayfair is an area in central London in the City of Westminster, which gets its name from the fact that an annual May Fair was held on the site that is now Shepherd Market, between 1686 and 1764. A number of luxurious hotels can be found in Mayfair, and of course the Burlington Arcade is a shopper’s paradise.

Did you sustain a whiplash injury in Mayfair?

You might have sustained a whiplash injury in Mayfair while you were shopping if you slipped and fell in the street. If you could prove that your accident and subsequent whiplash injury in Mayfair were caused by another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to claim for your injury. To make a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Mayfair, you have to be able to prove without doubt that the accident was not your fault, but that the blame for it lay with another person.

Accidents while shopping

If you are shopping, it is often the case that you are not paying attention to anything other than the items on display in the shop windows past which you are walking. If you trip, fall, and fracture a limb, you may simply have fallen over your feet or tripped because your shoes were unsuitable for the shopping expedition. If the accident was your fault, you would not be able to make a claim for your injury. It would be another matter, however, if you had tripped because the road or pavement was in a bad condition.

If you have an accident and are injured in the street, you should call the police and an ambulance. The police will write a report and inform the local authority about your accident, and you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against it. You could take photographs to show how the accident occurred, which could be used later as supporting evidence for your potential personal injury compensation claim.

You will need a doctor’s report regarding the extent of your injuries, as well as the police report, and the police should have contact details of witnesses to your accident. Your personal injury lawyer will need this information in order to build a case for your prospective claim.

You usually have three years from the date of an accident that occurred in the British Isles in which to make a claim for injuries, but this is not always the case. Find out how long you have to make your claim by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline.
