    Whiplash Injury in Ravenstonedale


    Ravenstonedale is a rural village in North West Leicestershire, in the National Forest. This forest is a beautiful blend of ancient woodland and new plantings, together with a visitors’ centre and activities related to woodland and forestry, such as falconry. Most of us enjoy a trip through lovely scenery and an opportunity to enjoy nature at its best, but unfortunately, there are hazards.

    Hazards of country driving

    When driving through wooded areas, watch out for stags, deer and other wild animals running out without warning. Although road signs may warn of the danger, and the driver may be alert to it, nothing can really prepare us for the sudden appearance of a wild animal, if there are no fences. Deer are especially problematic because they “freeze” in front of a vehicle and do not always run out of the way. These are heavy animals and an impact with one can cause substantial damage to the vehicle, and potential injury to the occupants if the impact is severe, not to mention death or distress to the animal.

    What do I do if I have suffered a whiplash injury in Ravenstonedale?

    If you think the accident was not your fault and you have suffered an injury because of someone else’s actions or negligence, you may have a case for compensation. Where wildlife caused the accident, it is possible the landowner will be held liable. Injured passengers may have a case against the driver of the car in which they were travelling. In “rear-enders”, when a vehicle fails to stop and drives into the back of another, the rule is that the following vehicle is generally liable.
