Ravenshead is a village in Nottinghamshire. It is neither more nor less likely that a resident of the village should suffer a whiplash injury here, than anywhere else in the UK. Whiplash injury most commonly occurs from an impact resulting from a car accident, or a fall from a bike, or any incident in which the victim’s head has been thrown violently backwards and forwards. Should you have suffered a whiplash injury in Ravenshead, you might be out of action and off work for a while. Your normal life could possibly be disrupted for a few weeks.
Whose fault was your whiplash injury in Ravenshead?
As driver of a vehicle involved in an accident with another vehicle, if the other driver is proven responsible for causing the accident, then you may have a claim for compensation. Likewise, a passenger in an accident vehicle may be able to claim against the driver’s insurance, of the car he or she was travelling in. The insurance companies will establish which driver was responsible, or whether there was joint responsibility or other factors involved.
