“I wonder if you could help me? I had a whiplash injury in Newburgh, and it was strange how it happened. It wasn’t even a road accident, which I found quite weird!
“What happened was that I was in a boxercise class and my sparring partner was a little too enthusiastic. I ended up being bashed in the side of the head! I got checked out at hospital and fortunately, I wasn’t concussed.
“The next day, I felt an increasing amount of stiffness and tenderness in my neck. It was really quite painful, and the pain got worse the day after that, so off I went to the doctor…and whiplash was diagnosed.
“A few weeks later, I’m OK – but my bank balance isn’t! I’m self-employed, you see, and I’ve not been able to work, so I’m a bit worried about bills. I’ve also had to pay for a home help, because I’ve had difficulty vacuuming up and doing the laundry.
“Can I claim compensation for this?”
