Penzance is a coastal town and holiday resort in Cornwall. Located near the sea, the town receives numerous visitors each year. Although the area is relatively small, it isn’t without its dangers.
As many tourists drive in the area, they may be unfamiliar with the roads and this can lead to an increase in the number of accidents which occur. If you’ve been hurt as a result of an incident in Penzance, you may be considering making a claim for compensation.
Are you suffering from a whiplash injury in Penzance?
Unfortunately, a whiplash injury in Penzance isn’t uncommon. As in any area, whiplash is often caused by accidents on the road. As even minor car accidents can cause these types of injuries, many people suffer from whiplash each year.
If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Penzance and you don’t believe you were responsible for the accident, you could be eligible to obtain personal injury compensation. Providing you can show that someone else caused you to get hurt, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to take legal action against them.
However, you will need to have obtained medical help for your whiplash injury in Penzance, before you’ll be able to make a claim.
How long do you have to make my claim?
If you’ve been hurt whilst on holiday, you may not want to make a compensation claim immediately. Sometimes, the shock of the accident can take days or weeks to recover from so you won’t want to rush into taking legal action.
Fortunately, most claimants are given 3 years’ in which to make a claim after being hurt so you could still obtain compensation, even if the incident occurred some time ago.
