Organford is a small hamlet in Dorset, close to Wareham. It is fairly near to both the sea and woods, so it has the best of both worlds. If you decide to stay in Organford and use it as a base to explore Dorset and Hampshire, you might have a whiplash injury near Organford, perhaps in a car accident, or in another type of accident. Think about poor William Rufus, who had a “hunting accident” while in the New Forest. You might not get a stray arrow now in the Forest, but if you are riding a horse and not paying attention, you might crack your head and suffer a whiplash injury near Organford. You would not be able to make a claim for your injury if this happened to you, as you would be entirely at fault.
Have you suffered a whiplash injury near Organford?
If you have had a whiplash injury near Organford, you could be contemplating making a personal injury compensation claim for it. In order to be eligible to make a claim, you must be able to prove that your injury was the result of an accident for which you were in no way to blame, and that the fault lay entirely with another person. If you believe that you have good grounds to file a personal injury compensation claim, then call us at Accident Advice Helpline for help and expert legal advice.
How long do I have to make my claim?
The length of time you have in which to file a claim can vary according to the accident you were injured in. Usually you have three years from the date of an accident that occurred within the UK to file a personal injury compensation claim. There are, however, exceptions to this rule, and as you only have nine months to claim for injuries sustained in some accidents, you really should find out now how long you have to file your particular claim. You can do this by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline on the freephone numbers you will find below.
Accidents and injuries: 2 years to claim
You have two years to make a claim for accidents that happened at sea, in the air, or at an airport in a country that has signed the Montreal Convention. Such accidents are governed by international conventions and not UK law.
You also only have two years to file a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you were injured while a crime was being committed in England, Scotland or Wales.
