    Whiplash Injury in Osmaston


    Osmaston today is a suburb of Derby and the location of Osmaston Hall, which no longer exists. It is also the name of a small village in the Derbyshire Dales. Both of these places called Osmaston have been in existence since before the Domesday Book was complied (1086) as they both feature in it. In the small village of Osmaston there is a traditional village pond where you can see two of the oldest thatched cottages in the village.

    Did you have a whiplash injury in Osmaston?

    If you have had a whiplash injury in Osmaston and are thinking about making a personal injury compensation claim for it, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. You can do this at any time on one of our freephone numbers, as the lines are always open. The one thing to remember when trying to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Osmaston, or any other kind of injury sustained anywhere else in the British Isles, is that you must be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault.

    How long do I have to claim for my whiplash injury?

    You might have got your whiplash injury in Osmaston in a number of ways, and the type of accident you were injured in determines how long you have to claim for it from the date of its occurrence. Usually, if the accident occurred in this country, you have three years in which to make your claim. However, if the accident occurred at sea, aboard an aircraft, or at an airport in a country that is a signatory to the Montreal Convention, you have just two years in which to file your claim. This is also the case if you were injured in a crime.

    There are some accidents and the resulting injuries for which you have even less time to make your claim. If you are thinking about making any type of personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly how long you have to file your claim.

    Generally speaking you should begin the claims process as soon as you possibly can after your accident so as not to suffer too much financial hardship while the claim is being processed. If the case can be settled out of court, you could receive compensation in a matter of months, but if it has to go before the court, it could take years before you receive any compensation.
