Ogmore-by-Sea is a coastal village in the Vale of Glamorgan, south Wales. It has a beautiful sandy beach, although you are advised to take care while bathing, surfing or kayaking as the waters can be hazardous. Take note of the flags and only take to the water in the designated areas and never when red flags are flying. There is a reef just off the bay, Tusker Rock, which is submerged at high tide, that has caused ships to run aground in the past. There are tales of smugglers luring ships onto the reef, just as there are in Cornwall, although it would seem that there is little or no historical evidence to support these. If you suffered whiplash injury for any reason in Ogmore-by-Sea, it would spoil your memory of these romantic mystery tales.
Did you have a whiplash injury in Ogmore-by-Sea?
If you were on a kayak and were in the wrong area, you might end up with a whiplash injury near Ogmore-by-Sea if your craft ran aground on the notorious Tusker Rock. Unfortunately for you, it would not be possible to claim for any injuries sustained in this type of accident as you should have paid more attention to the flags that clearly indicate where you should be (and so by extension, where you shouldn’t be).
In order to make a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Ogmore-by-Sea (or anywhere else for that matter), you must be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault.
Depending on what type of accident you sustained your whiplash injury in Ogmore-by-Sea in, you would have between nine months and three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.
