Newquay is a popular spot in Cornwall, beloved by many who go there on holiday each year. Its position on the coastline, with a river one side and a valley the other, makes it highly appealing to many. A few less than 20,000 people were found to be permanent residents in the area in the last census, but this can swell considerably during the holiday period. The vastly increased population each summer could potentially mean it is more likely a few people might possibly suffer a whiplash injury in Newquay.
As you can probably imagine, the influx of visitors also leads to an influx of vehicles. Many people may be unfamiliar with the area and there’s a chance some might be trying to read maps or look at sat-navs while trying to find their way around. Even the smallest lapse in concentration could potentially lead to problems and accidents.
The speed of crash can determine the extent of a whiplash injury in Newquay
Not every car accident victim suffers from whiplash in Newquay, or wherever else it is that the accident happens. However, when the head is flung forwards or backwards with force, or even sideways, there is an increased chance of whiplash being the result. The more pronounced the impact is, the more likely it is the driver and anyone else in the car would sustain whiplash injury in Newquay.
Whiplash is one of the most common things to suffer from when a car accident occurs. It is by no means guaranteed that you’d get it, but if you do you could end up being in some discomfort for a time afterwards.
Claiming compensation through Accident Advice Helpline
No matter where your accident happens, if you suffer whiplash injury in Newquay or elsewhere, someone will be to blame for causing it. If that person wasn’t you, then someone else essentially caused your injury. If they were negligent, you have a legal right to claim financial compensation. You don’t have to, but the possibility of a significant sum of compensation might make it worthwhile.
Even minor whiplash may potentially result in a compensation award being made, as long as you have medical proof of diagnosis. With this proof and confirmation that the accident (which someone else was to blame for) took place in the last three years, we can help. Accident Advice Helpline are after all, specialists in helping genuine injury victims to gain compensation, and on a no-win, no fee basis.
