    Whiplash injury in Muirhead

    Whiplash injury in Muirhead

    Muirhead is a small suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. There’s a cycle route which goes from Glasgow to Cumbernauld running through Muirhead, and you can also go horse riding and play golf in Muirhead.

    Are you suffering from a whiplash injury in Muirhead?

    You may have had an accident other than a road traffic one and be suffering from a whiplash injury in Muirhead. You can get a whiplash injury in Muirhead, for example, if you are thrown from a horse or if you have a cycling accident. This is because a whiplash injury occurs when your head moves violently in two opposite directions. You may, for example have been riding your bicycle in Muirhead when the front wheel lodged in a pothole and you went flying over the handlebars. You could have suffered any number of injuries and one of them could have been whiplash.

    You may have suffered a whiplash injury in Muirhead if you were thrown from your horse, too.

    Can I claim for my injury?

    To make any successful personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injury was not your fault, but that the blame for it lay solely with another person or other people.

    Although the UK government is attempting to clamp down on those who make bogus whiplash injury claims, if you have a genuine case of whiplash, you may be entitled to make a claim. Since 2014 you must undergo a second medical examination in order to make a claim. The new government measures do not preclude you from making a claim for a genuine whiplash injury.

    Bus accidents

    If you are travelling on a bus and the driver has an accident, it is possible that you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim as long as you had not distracted the driver in any way and so caused the accident. You may have slipped in the aisle because someone had spilled food or drink on the floor; if this had not been cleaned up, you may be eligible to make a claim because staff had been negligent.

    If you got a whiplash injury because the driver had to brake suddenly and then crashed into the back of another vehicle, or swerved off the road and hit a tree, then you could also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
