If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Minffordd, you probably are not the first person to have done so. Minffordd is a small village in Gwynedd in which Welsh is commonly spoken. The remains of a medieval castle are close to the village, locally known as Castell Gwain Goch or Castell Deudraeth or even Aber lâ. There used to be a workhouse there, although it is now populated by a colony of lesser horseshoe bats, having changed its role over the years. There is another Castell Deudraeth in nearby Portmeirion, which was built in Victorian times which is now a hotel.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Minffordd?
If you were wandering around Minffordd after dark, you may have had a little scare if a lesser horseshoe bat suddenly swooped down and knocked your hat off. The poor creature’s echolocation system may have temporarily malfunctioned. As a result, you could have reacted badly and suffered a whiplash injury in Minffordd. If a bat caused your whiplash injury in Minford, you would be unable to claim personal injury compensation. This is because a bat is a wild creature so there would be no one to make a claim against.
Of course, the most common type of whiplash injury in Minffordd is sustained in a road traffic accident. The same is true of all other areas in the UK. Many road traffic accidents occur because one driver was following much too closely behind another. This is sometimes called tailgating. If the vehicle you are travelling in is hit in the rear section, for example, this can easily cause a jolt to your head and neck area. However, you can get whiplash in almost any type of accident that results in your head being jolted suddenly and severely back and forth.
For instance, you could end up with whiplash and worse if you are thrown from a horse while out riding. In the end, it doesn’t really matter what kind of accident caused your whiplash. If your whiplash was caused by the neglect or carelessness of a second party, you can claim injury compensation. Whiplash may not sound serious. However, it can cause weeks if not months of pain and discomfort. You should seek compensation if you suffer whiplash in a non-fault accident.
