Ruddington is a village in Nottinghamshire, close to Nottingham. Ruddington was established in Saxon times and flourished during the Industrial Revolution when it was a centre of the frame knitting industry. Prior to that for most of its history Ruddington was principally a farming community. The railway opened in 1899 but by that time the frame knitting industry was in decline, but the ease of transport provided by the new trains, meant that people could commute to work in nearby towns. The Ruddington railway station is no longer used however.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Ruddington?
If you commute by train or by road you might have had a whiplash injury in Ruddington. You can get a whiplash injury in Ruddington if you play a contact sport such as rugby or if you are a boxer. Whiplash injuries are caused by a blow to the head or an impact to the body which makes your head jerk violently in two opposite directions. The ligaments and tendons in the neck are damaged and this is termed a whiplash injury.
If you have had a whiplash injury in Ruddington and can prove that the accident in which you sustained it was not your fault, but the fault of another person, call us at Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice and possible help to make a personal injury compensation claim.
If you were travelling on a train that collided with another, you might have had a whiplash injury. You may be eligible to make a claim from the train operator in such a case. If you slip and fall on a train, it might have been because food or liquid has spilled onto the floor and not been cleaned up. In circumstances such as these you may be able to make a claim because staff should have cleaned up any such spillage and not doing so means that they have been negligent in their duties.
You could also be scalded if the steward serving hot drinks on the train spills a hot drink on you. You could also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for this type of injury.
Sometimes jagged pieces of metal cause accidents on trains, perhaps they are protruding from the seats, and once again, you may be entitled to make a claim for injuries.
