Can I make a claim for a whiplash injury in North Acton?
If you have had any type of accident, including one in which you sustained a whiplash injury in North Acton, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident was not your fault.
Although the UK government has introduced measures to stop bogus claims for a whiplash injury in North Acton and the rest of the British Isles, you may be eligible to make a claim for your particular whiplash injury in North Acton if your claim is a genuine one.
Do you only have a whiplash injury in a car crash?
You can actually have whiplash in more types of accident than one, although we generally associate whiplash injuries with collisions on the road. The fact is that you could sustain a whiplash injury if you receive a blow to the head, or if you are impacted violently in any way. The head moves as a whip does when it is cracked, and this damages the ligaments and tendons in the neck. Sometimes a whiplash injury is severe and the spinal cord can sustain permanent damage.
How long do I have to make a claim?
The length of time for filing a claim depends on the type of accident you have had. Having said that, however, generally if your accident happened in the UK you have three years in which to file a claim. This is not always true though, so don’t assume that you have three years to file your claim, as you have to claim within months of some accidents to be eligible for compensation. When the limitation period for your particular accident has expired you could only make a claim in exceptional circumstances.
