Although road access to the county of Cornwall has improved in recent years, there are still many country lanes in the area. If you’re unfamiliar with these types of roads, there may be an increased risk of an accident occurring and you could suffer a whiplash injury in Perranarworthal as a result.
A whiplash injury often occurs because of a collision. The impact of one vehicle hitting another can cause your neck to move suddenly and this results in whiplash. However, any accident which causes your neck to move abnormally has the potential to cause a whiplash injury in Perranarworthal.
Are you suffering from a whiplash injury in Perranarworthal?
If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Perranarworthal, you might be wondering if you could make a personal injury compensation claim for it. Whether you can or not depends on the circumstances surrounding the accident.
If someone else caused you to get hurt, you should be able to make a claim against them. However, you may need to present evidence in order to prove that you weren’t at fault. If anyone else saw the incident occur, this could prove to be extremely helpful when you make your claim.
If they are willing to provide a witness statement, this could help to prove that you weren’t responsible for the accident and could increase your chances of obtaining compensation for a whiplash injury in Perranarworthal.
How long do you have to file a claim?
