Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Pevensey?
It might surprise you to learn that you can suffer from a whiplash injury in Pevensey, or elsewhere, in an accident other than one involving vehicles. Boxers and people who play contact sports could easily suffer a whiplash injury in Pevensey, for example. Whiplash injuries are caused when the head moves violently in opposite directions, and may be the result of a punch to the head or a blow from an impact. Of course, we usually associate whiplash injuries with car accidents.
Can I make a claim for my whiplash injury?
Although the British government has been taking steps to prevent people from making fraudulent claims for whiplash injuries, you can still make a personal injury compensation claim if yours is a genuine case and was not the result of a ‘cash-for-crash accident’ (in other words, one that was deliberately staged in order to claim an insurance payout). You might be asked to undergo a second medical examination, for which you may have to pay, but if yours is a genuine case of whiplash and you can prove that the accident in which you sustained it was the fault of another person and not yours, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
