Osmotherley is a village on the north Yorkshire moors. It is said to have one of the first Methodist chapels in the country, built after a visit to the village by John Wesley. It is thought that he stood on the stone table next to the village cross to do his preaching. In the Domesday Book of 1086 Osmotherley is listed as Asmundrelac. Apparently it has the only pub in the country called the ‘Queen Catherine,’ and so the village featured in some news programmes when Prince William married Catherine Middleton. The parish church at Osmotherley is dedicated to St Peter and was built on the site of a much earlier Saxon church. Parts of the existing church date back to Norman times, although it was rebuilt in the 19th century to quite a large extent.
How do you get a whiplash injury in Osmotherley?
If you had been standing on the barter table next to the village cross and preaching along with the likes of John Wesley, you might have slipped and banged your head on the foot of the cross and this could have given you a whiplash injury in Osmotherley. It’s not only in car crashes that you can get a whiplash injury in Osmotherley, although given the government and media attention to such accidents and injuries, you could be forgiven for thinking so. You can get a whiplash injury in Osmotherley in any type of accident in which your head moves violently in two opposing directions. If you are a boxer, or if you play a contact sport, for example, you might have a whiplash injury in Osmotherley because you had a blow to the head.
Can I claim for a whiplash injury now?
As long as you can prove that the accident in which you sustained your whiplash injury was not your fault, but the fault of someone else, you could be eligible to make a claim. The government has introduced measures to stop people who make bogus claims for whiplash injuries, but if your whiplash injury is genuine, then you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
