    Whiplash Injury in Shirland


    Shirland is an ancient village in Derbyshire which used to be in mining country. Shirland’s parish church, which is dedicated to Saint Leonard (of Noblac), was built in the 15th century (opinions differ), but it was probably built on the site of an earlier church and it is now a Grade II listed building, having been restored in the mid-19th century. Saint Leonard was of noble birth but who became a hermit and lived near Limoge in France, where he founded a monastery after being granted land by King Clovis. He is the patron saint of childbirth, and of captives; this is shown in various images of this saint as he is generally pictured as being in chains. His feast day is held on the 6th November, although there is scant evidence of his existence.

    Have you had a whiplash injury in Shirland?

    If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Shirland, you could, at this very moment, be considering making a personal injury compensation claim for it. You may be a little concerned that you are not eligible to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Shirland now, because of the government’s measures to clamp down on bogus whiplash claims. However, if yours is a genuine case of a whiplash injury in Shirland you might be entitled to make a claim for it.

    In order to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Shirland, or any other injury suffered elsewhere in the UK, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injury was not your fault. It is also important to be able to prove, with the help of a personal injury lawyer, that someone else was to blame for it.

    You should also have received medical treatment very soon after the accident occurred, as your medical report will be needed if you are to file a personal injury compensation claim.

    How long do I have to make my claim?

    Different accidents have various limitation periods, although usually, if your accident occurred in the British Isles, you would have three years to file a claim from its date. Having said that however, you may have as few as nine months to file your claim. You should phone us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have to file your claim, or perhaps the limitation period will have expired and you will no longer be eligible to make your claim.
