Roy Bridge is a small village in the Scottish Highlands situated at the point where the rivers Roy and Spean meet. There’s the Shrine of Blessed Mary MacKillop in St. Margaret’s Church in Roy Bridge, as the saint’s parents hailed from that place before emigrating to Australia. Their daughter is the only Australian saint so far. If you are interested in geology and weird natural phenomena, you should walk along the small road to the north of Roy Bridge and a few kilometres away, in Glen Roy, you will see three parallel lines stretching into the distance on the hillsides. These were formed by the movement of glaciers and the melting of ice between 12,900 and 11, 500 years ago; they are now called the Parallel lines of Glen Roy and are world famous.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Roy Bridge?
You might be sitting at home suffering with a whiplash injury in Roy Bridge that you sustained while walking in Glen Roy. You might have been startled by a deer, jumped, lost your balance and knocked your head against a tree trunk. This may have been the cause of that whiplash injury in Roy Bridge which you now have. You would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for an accident and the resulting whiplash injury in Roy Bridge if this happened to you. This is because you have to be able, not only to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, but you also need to prove that it was caused by another person.
You also should have had medical attention as soon as you possibly could after the accident as, in order to file a personal injury compensation claim you need a medical report so that the amount of compensation you receive for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injury can be calculated.
How much compensation could I get?
Although no one can tell you exactly how much compensation you might receive for your injury, you can get a rough estimate by taking the 30-Second Test which you will find on the main pages of this website. The amounts you could receive for a minor whiplash injury, if you recover fully within a few months to a year are between £1,705and £3,520 and if you are expected to fully recover within two years, then you could receive between £3,520 and £6,380. These sums are only for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your whiplash injury and do not take into account loss of earnings, loss of amenity and so on. If your whiplash injury were more serious, then you would expect to receive more in terms of compensation.
