Oldmeldrum or Old Meldrum, is a village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The main industries are agriculture and engineering services for the North Sea oil industry of Aberdeen. It is known as the “Granary of Scotland” due to the excellent quality of the barley that grows in the region. Meldrum House was built in the 13th century and extended over time. It is now a hotel and golf course.
Did you have a whiplash injury in Old Meldrum?
If you were playing golf (anywhere in the UK) it is possible that you sustained a whiplash injury in Old Meldrum or elsewhere. You may have been involved in a car accident on your way to a golf course or on your way home after a round of golf. Alternatively you may have received your whiplash injury in Old Meldrum after being struck on the side or back of your head by a stray golf ball.
If you have had a whiplash injury in Old Meldrum, or anywhere else in the country, you need to prove conclusively that the accident in which you received your injury was not your fault if you are to make a personal injury compensation claim.
When can you make a claim?
It all depends on what type of accident you had as to how long you have to make your personal injury compensation claim, so you need to find this out as soon as possible. Although you would usually have three years from the date of an accident in which to make your claim, this isn’t always the case. You should call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you have months or years in which to make your potential claim. The sooner you can make a claim after your accident the better, as sometimes claims have to go through the courts before a settlement can be reached and that can take years rather than months.
How do you find a suitable personal injury lawyer?
To find out if you have good grounds to make any personal injury compensation claim, you would need advice from an expert personal injury lawyer. As there are so many different types of accident, lawyers tend to specialise in just one type, such as accidents in public places. We at Accident Advice Helpline can help you by putting you in touch with one of our expert personal injury lawyers who all work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
