You might have received a whiplash injury in Membury in almost any situation, as whiplash injuries do not only occur in traffic accidents. If you almost fell on the stairs at home, for example, but managed to grab the banister to prevent you tumbling to the bottom, and you jolted your head severely as a result, you may have suffered a whiplash injury in Membury if that is where you happen to live.
You could have also sustained a whiplash injury in Membury if you had climbed the old chestnut tree and fallen from one of its higher branches, too. However, in order to make a successful personal injury compensation claim, you would have to prove, with the help of your personal injury lawyer, that the accident was not your fault.
How long do I have to claim?
The length of time you have in which to make a claim depends on the type of accident and injury you have suffered. For example, if you sustained an injury while a crime was in progress, you would only have two years in which to file a claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
If you are involved in some road traffic accidents, you may only have nine months in which to make a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). If you were injured in an accident at sea, on board an aircraft, or at an airport (with the proviso that the country in which you were injured is a signatory to the Montreal Convention), then you also only have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
