Accidents in public places
You don’t only get a whiplash injury in Onich as a result of a car accident; you can get one just about anywhere if your head is jolted in a sudden, violent impact. If you suffer a punch or blow to the head, then you might get a whiplash injury. It could be that you were walking along the street when something fell onto your head, for example, and then, if you wanted to make a personal injury compensation claim you would have to find out who was responsible for your accident.
If you have an accident in the street, you should call the police and report it as well as calling an ambulance, as however minor the injury seems at the time, it could become worse if you do not receive immediate medical attention. In order to have a chance of a successful personal injury claim after an accident in the street you have to produce a police and medical report.
If you have an accident, perhaps you slipped and fell, fracturing a limb, in a supermarket, you may be able to make a claim for your injuries if you can prove that, for example, staff had been negligent and had not cleaned up a spillage which caused you to fall. If you have an accident of this kind, you need to report it to a member of staff and ensure that they log the details of your accident in the accident book; this can be done while you are waiting for an ambulance. You should then seek medical treatment for your injuries.
