    Whiplash Injury in Rodney Stoke


    Rodney Stoke is a small village close to Cheddar in Somerset. In the Domesday Book of 1086 Rodney Stoke is referred to as Stoches, meaning a ‘settlement with a stockade’ and later, in 1291 it was Stokgifford, as Gifford was the name of the family who were most influential in the area. Sir John Rodney lived in the village between 1561 and 1612 and it is likely that it is his name that resulted in the village becoming Rodney Stoke. There are nature reserves and Sites of Specific Scientific Interest around Rodney Stoke, as well as ancient woodland called Mascalls’ Wood. The church of St Leonard in the village dates back to the latter part of the 12th century and is a Grade I listed building.

    Have you had a whiplash injury in Rodney Stoke?

    You may have had a whiplash injury in Rodney Stoke if you were looking for badgers at night in Mascalls’ Wood. You might not have been able to see very well in the gloom, and could have banged your head on a tree. You can, you see, get a whiplash injury near Rodney Stoke in accidents that do not involve vehicles. Your whiplash injury in Rodney Stoke might have been caused in any accident in which your head moved rapidly in two opposite directions. An impact to the body can cause this to happen, or a blow to the head. A whiplash injury may not be immediately apparent, but if you have been involved in an accident, you should seek medical treatment just in case you have a more serious problem than seems apparent.

    Can I claim for my injury?

    You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident in which you sustained your injury was no fault of yours. You have to be able to also prove that it was caused by another person. For example, if you were out looking for badgers and you were bitten by one because you shone a light in its eyes, then you would not be able to make a claim for the injury as it would have been your own fault and as a badger is wild there would be no one to make a claim against.

    In order to make a personal injury compensation claim you also must have had medical treatment for your injury, as a medical report is required to ascertain the severity of your injury and to award compensation.
