Central London is a busy place, and the area of Pimlico is certainly not without its hustle and bustle! It has two tube stations on three Underground lines, as well as National Rail – and it has twelve docking stations for London’s popular bike hire scheme.
It’s worth knowing about this, because a whiplash injury in Pimlico can be caused by train and bike accidents, as well as the more common car accidents with which people more usually associate whiplash.
Whiplash injury in Pimlico
Whiplash can happen whenever there is sudden impact, which causes the head to jerk, thereby damaging the neck’s tendons and ligaments. The impact can happen if a train stops suddenly, for example, and this can be the case for both underground and overground systems.
It can also happen if you get into an accident on your bike. This could be through coming off your bike as a result of striking a pothole with your front wheel, perhaps, or if you are involved in a collision with a vehicle. Cyclists are at particular risk of being injured by other road traffic.
You may be able to claim compensation
If your whiplash injury in Pimlico has been caused by someone else, then why not claim compensation? After all, you wouldn’t have whiplash if someone else’s actions or negligence hadn’t affected you.
You certainly wouldn’t be in the position of having to take time off work, either, with the prospect of losing wages. You also wouldn’t have to hire a home help or get taxis and buses to get to the places you need to visit – and of course, these services cost money.
