If you need to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Pembrey, it’s likely that your injury would have stemmed from a car accident of some kind. As whiplash normally occurs in this way, a significant number of whiplash injury claims arise from road traffic accidents.
Providing the incident wasn’t your fault and you obtained medical help for your injuries, you should be able to move forward with your claim. However, there are other ways that a whiplash injury in Pembrey can occur.
If you’ve been travelling on public transport, for example, and an incident occurs, an impact or sudden stop could cause you to suffer whiplash or other neck-related injuries. In such cases, it may be appropriate for you to make a compensation claim against the transport company.
Making a claim for a whiplash injury in Pembrey
Luckily, making a compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Pembrey is much the same as making a claim for any other type of injury. Although you’ll need to have obtained medical treatment before you’ll be able to make a claim, this doesn’t mean that you must have had invasive treatment or surgery.
If you were treated by your doctor, for example, you could still go on to obtain compensation.
Of course, it’s always a good idea to present evidence to support your claim, if you’re able to do so. If other people saw the incident occur, for example, they could provide witness statements which could help to prove that you weren’t liable for the incident.
