Much of the north-western suburban fringe of London is still referred to as Middlesex, even though the county itself was effectively abolished in 1965 upon the creation of Greater London.
Towns such as Harrow, Pinner, Ruislip and Hayes still carry the county name for postal addresses, and of course, the county name lives on in the famous Middlesex County Cricket Club (which plays at Lord’s, in St John’s Wood).
Whatever you call it, Middlesex is a large area, with plenty of potential for accidents to happen. Sometimes, accidents lead to injury – and if you get a whiplash injury in Middlesex, you need to know what to do!
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury to the ligaments and tendons in the neck. It is caused by the jerking of the head upon sudden impact, which is why it is often associated with car accidents (although it may be caused in other ways, such as in a slip and fall accident).
It is painful. There is usually some tenderness and stiffness in the neck apparent a few hours after the incident; sometimes, the sufferer is aware of their whiplash injury in Middlesex the following day, upon waking.
You could be eligible to claim compensation
Your whiplash injury in Middlesex could mean that you are eligible to claim compensation. If the accident wasn’t your fault – i.e. it was caused by someone else – you could recover any losses or expenses that you have incurred as a result of the injury.
Such losses may be in the form of reduced earnings, because you have had to take time off work to recover. There may also be fees for childminders and home helps, and fares for public transport.
