    Whiplash Injury in Norfolk

    If you were in Norfolk on the 27th June 2014, you may have had a whiplash injury in Norfolk which was caused as a result of the flash floods. As there was more heavy rain expected at the time, police were urging motorists to take care when driving along water-logged streets. At Hemsby, Norfolk, a lifeboat crew helped motorists who had been stranded. The railway line at Brundall was also flooded and services between Norwich and Great Yarmouth, and Lowestoft in Suffolk were suspended. Many bus services were also affected in the county.

    Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Norfolk?

    You may have had an accident during the flooding and suffered a whiplash injury in Norfolk. Perhaps you lost control of your vehicle and hit a tree which could have caused such an injury. You would not be able to file a personal injury compensation claim for your whiplash injury in Norfolk though, as there was no other person involved in the accident. You would be entirely to blame, perhaps because you were driving too fast for the weather conditions. In order to make a successful personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Norfolk, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was in no way your fault, and that another person was to blame for it.

    Accidents in the street

    The most common types of accident are slips, trips and falls, which can, of course, occur everywhere, and they don’t always happen because we have been particularly clumsy. If you have fallen because you were tottering along a cobbled street in very high heels, then the accident would conceivably be your fault, so you wouldn’t be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for your sprained ankle or fractured limb. However, if you had fallen because you tripped over an uneven piece of paving, then you might be able to make a claim for your injuries as the local authority has a duty to maintain streets and pavements and keep them in a good state of repair.

    If you have an accident in the street, call the police and an ambulance. You will need immediate medical attention for your injury. The police will write a report and ask for witnesses and then inform the local authority of your accident. You will need the police report as well as a medical report if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim.
