Have you had a whiplash injury in Prestatyn?
Prestatyn rightly has a reputation as being one the UK’s favourite resorts. However, in the summer months things can get pretty busy and the roads have to cope with considerably more traffic than would normally be the case.
The result is a significant rise in the number of small accidents. Although these aren’t life threatening they can result in serious injuries, which themselves can lead to a personal injury claim. If you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Prestatyn, for example, you may want to take legal action and obtain compensation for your injury.
Could you make a claim?
In order to obtain compensation for a whiplash injury in Prestatyn, you’ll need to prove who was responsible for the incident which caused you to get hurt. As you’ll only be awarded compensation if someone else caused your injuries, this is an essential part of making a successful claim.
If you were involved in a car accident, for example, you’ll need to proof that another driver or road user was responsible for the accident. This may be easier than it sounds. If the driver admits their liability, there were witnesses or the incident was caught on tape, it could be fairly easy for you to make a successful claim.
Although whiplash isn’t always considered too serious, it’s important to seek medical help if you suspect you’re suffering from this type of harm. Doctors will want to rule out anything more serious and also provide treatment for whiplash.
In addition to this, you’ll need to have received medical treatment before you’ll be able to begin a claim for your whiplash injury in Prestatyn.
Don’t forget – claimants only normally have 3 years to make a claim after an accident has occurred so it’s important not to wait too long to take action.
