Have you sustained a whiplash injury in Pontllyfni?
If you are sitting at home with an extremely sore neck, you may have suffered a whiplash injury in Pontllyfni. You can sustain a whiplash injury in Pontllyfni in any kind of accident in which the head moves violently in opposing directions — these injuries don’t just occur in car accidents. Boxers, for example, can suffer a whiplash injury when punched in the head, or if you play a contact sport like rugby you might also sustain a whiplash injury. If this happens because of an illegal tackle, you might be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Claiming compensation for an injury
If you have been injured in an accident and can prove that it was not your fault, but that another person was responsible, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. You should have received medical treatment for your injury as soon as possible after the accident. Failure to do this could jeopardise your claim, as some injuries are made much worse if they are not treated immediately. If you have been involved in an accident in the street, you should call the police and an ambulance. You might need a police report, as well as a medical one.
How long do I have in which to make a claim?
If the accident in which you were injured took place in the UK, you would usually expect to have three years from the date on which it happened in which to make your claim. That being said, it should be pointed out that some accidents have a much shorter limitation period, so you should find out how long you actually have to file your particular claim. You can do this by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline.
