Portballintrae’s name means ‘port of the beach settlement,’ so as you might expect, it’s a coastal village in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. In its beginnings Portballintrae was a fishing village with houses along Portballintrae Bay. Many of these original cottages are still standing after being restored. One of the ships of the Spanish Armada sank off the coast and divers found the biggest horde of treasure ever found in British waters. Much of what was found is now on display in the Ulster Museum in Belfast.
You might have been going to Portballintrae beach (also called Salmon Rock beach) when you were involved in an accident and suffered a whiplash injury in Portballintrae.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Portballintrae?
If you have a sore neck and have a whiplash injury in Portballintrae, you might be considering filing a personal injury compensation claim. However, you may be a little perplexed about how to go about doing that.
First of all, if you have had a whiplash injury in Portballintrae, for example, you must be able to prove that the accident which resulted in your injury was not your fault, but the fault of another individual. If you can do this with the help of a personal injury lawyer, you might be eligible to make a claim for our injury.
How long do I have to make my claim?
The length of time you have in which to make a claim depends on the type of accident you were involved in. For example, you would normally expect to have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if the accident happened in Great Britain or Northern Ireland. However, you might not have as long as that, as you have to claim for injuries which occurred in some types of accident within nine months of its date. So the sooner you begin the claims process the better, as you wouldn’t want to lose the chance of claiming compensation for your injuries and being reimbursed for the expenses incurred because of them, would you?
