    Whiplash Injury in North Berwick


    Whiplash Injury in North Berwick

    North Berwick is a coastal town in East Lothian, Scotland. At some time in its dim and distant past North Berwick must have been arable land where barley grew, judging by its name. Berwick comes from two Old English words, ‘bere’ meaning ‘barley’ and ‘wic’ meaning ‘farmstead.’ In the late 16th century the North Berwick witch trials were held at the harbour in the Auld Kirk Green area. It was said that Satan had made an appearance at a gathering of a coven of witches, although it is generally believed that this is a reference to Francis Stewart Hepburn the 5th Earl of Boswell. The people on trial were accused of witchcraft and treason against the King of Scotland, James VI who was later to become King James I of England too.

    How would you get a whiplash injury in North Berwick?

    Nowadays, although we normally associate a whiplash injury with a car crash, you can sustain one if your head jerks rapidly and violently in two opposite directions. Boxers and rugby players may sustain whiplash injuries in North Berwick, for example.

    However, to make a successful personal injury compensation claim for any type of injury sustained in an accident, you must be able to prove that the accident was not your fault but the fault of another person. To find out if you have grounds on which to base a claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
