Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Petworth?
If you are suffering because of a whiplash injury in Petworth, you might be contemplating making a personal injury compensation claim. However, you might be wondering how exactly you should go about it, and if you have grounds on which to make a claim. To get answers to these queries, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You might have suffered a whiplash injury in Petworth because you had an accident involving a deer. If the deer belonged to the deer park, and was owned, then you may be eligible to make a claim against its owners. If, on the other hand, the deer that caused your whiplash injury in Petworth was a wild one, you would not be able to make a claim.
In order to make a claim for a whiplash injury (or any other injury) in Petworth, or elsewhere in the UK, you must be able to prove that the accident was not your fault, but that of another person. If, for example, you were involved in an accident involving a farmed deer, you might be able to make a claim against its owners, as they have a responsibility to keep fences in a good state of repair so that deer cannot stray and cause accidents.
Accident with deer
If you have been involved in an accident which involved a deer, wild or farmed, you should call the police. Don’t attempt to move the deer, but stay in your vehicle with your hazard lights on until they arrive. If you have an accident and wound a stag, remember that it can do a person a lot of harm with its antlers.
