    Whiplash injury in Shillington

    Shillington is a village in Bedfordshire, which grew around its parish church, on a hill in a valley lying between the Pegsdon Hills and the Chilterns. It has had many name changes over the centuries, being listed as Sethlingdone in the Domesday Book of 1086, and prior to that, some believe that it was called after a person (a Saxon) called Scyttel. It is situated close to one of the main trade routes of ancient times, the Icknield Way, which extends from East Anglia to Buckinghamshire. There is evidence of human habitation in the surrounding area from more than 4,500 years ago and for farming from around 3,300 years ago, so it is in an area which has a long and rich history. Farming is still carried out in the area with sheep being raised and wheat and barley is also grown.

    Have you had a whiplash injury in Shillington?

    It’s possible that right now you are cursing your luck and whoever, or whatever caused the accident in which you got a whiplash injury in Shillington. Of course, you may have been involved in a car crash, but there are many other ways of getting a whiplash injury too. You may have been walking through a field on a public footpath when a sheep took exception to your presence and charged at you from behind. This could have lead to a whiplash injury near Shillington and you might, with the aid of a personal injury lawyer, be able to make a compensation claim against the farmer who was the owner of the sheep. However, if you got your whiplash injury in Shillington because of a badger, for example, then you would be unable to make a personal injury compensation claim because badgers are wild animals with no owners and therefore cannot be sued for damages.

    Can I make a claim for my injuries?

    You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove:

    • you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured;
    • someone else was to blame entirely for your accident and injury; and
    • you sought immediate medical attention for your injury.

    You will need to provide your personal injury lawyer (if you don’t yet have one, call us at Accident Advice Helpline) with your medical report as the amount of compensation you may be awarded will depend on this and your doctor’s prognosis for your recovery.
