The famous naval city of Plymouth is situated on the south coast of England, and is a major tourist attraction. Getting a whiplash injury in Plymouth is perhaps the last thing on people’s minds when they’re planning a holiday there, but it can – and does – happen!
At Accident Advice Helpline, we know this only too well, so we’ve prepared some information for you on what to look out for, and what to do if you end up with whiplash from an accident that isn’t your fault. Read on to find out more!
How a Whiplash Injury in Plymouth Can Happen
There are many ways in which you can get whiplash, for example:
- Car accidents
- Horse riding accidents
- Water sports accidents
- Bike riding accidents
- Slips and falls
- Receiving a blow to the head
You will notice that some of the activities leading to the accidents listed above could be on your “to do” list if you’re planning a holiday on the south coast!
What to Do if you Get Whiplash
The most important thing to do, if you get into such an accident, is to seek medical advice as soon as possible. This may not be possible for a few hours (this is bound to be the case in a car accident).Open Claim Calculator
After this, when you’re recovering, you should think about making a compensation claim.
How to Make a Compensation Claim
As soon as possible after your whiplash injury in Plymouth is diagnosed, get on the phone to Accident Advice Helpline. We realise you may not be able to do this until after your holiday, and that’s fine. Enjoy the holiday! You have three years from the date of your accident to make a claim, so there’s no immediate hurry.
But you should consider doing it as soon as possible, because you could find yourself in a bit of financial trouble. If you have to take time off work, you could lose income; on top of this, you could also need to pay for the services of a home help or a childminder, or maybe even a taxi driver so that you can get out and about.
