    Whiplash Injury in North Bovey


    North Bovey is a village in Devon which has traditional thatched cottages and a stone cross on its village green. The cross had been torn down during the Civil War and served as a bridge across a stream until locals retrieved it in 1829 and placed it in the base stone which had remained on the green. Nearby Bovey Castle is a 20th century mansion made to appear like a Jacobean one, which is now a luxury resort hotel. In July there’s an annual North Bovey village fair, with maypole dancing, a sheep shearing contest and a feast in the evening hosted by the owners of the thatched 15th century village pub.

    Did you have a whiplash injury in North Bovey?

    If you were sheep shearing (whether in a contest or on a farm) you may have got a whiplash injury in North Bovey if a sheep came hurtling at you from behind and knocked you over. You don’t only get a whiplash injury in North Bovey or elsewhere if you have been in a road traffic accident. You can’t, of course sue a sheep for damages, and if you are its owner it would be pointless to make a personal injury compensation claim against yourself for your whiplash injury in North Bovey.

    For any personal injury compensation claim to be filed you must be able to prove that:

    • You were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured; and
    • The accident was another person’s fault.

    Farm Accidents

    Farming is a hazardous occupation, believe it or not. Many people think that life on a farm must be healthy, but consider all the dust from grain that is stored in a granary, the feathers, bits of bedding and so on that you would find in a chicken plant and the general animal stench when cattle and so on are housed in a barn (which has to be cleaned regularly) and you have a better idea of what farming is like. Add to this the dangers of heavy machinery and the possibility of being crushed if a tractor happens to overturn, for example.

    If you have an accident on a farm and can prove it was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a claim against the farmer is you can prove that he or she was to blame for your accident. Similarly if you are diagnosed with an occupational disease or work-related illness you may be able to prove that the farmer’s negligence caused your illness and so you could be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim.
