    Whiplash injury in Shropshire


    Shropshire is an English county which borders Wales. Shropshire has had a turbulent history as given its proximity to the Welsh border there were frequent skirmishes for control of Shrewsbury and other important towns. In 1403 the Battle of Shrewsbury was fought just outside the town, with the victor being Henry IV, who was, of course immortalized in Shakespeare’s play commemorating the battle. Nowadays Ludlow (another market town in Shropshire) is home of the Slow Food movement and in 2010 its members successfully had the Shropshire Prune into the “Ark of Taste” which seeks to protect and promote ‘endangered’ foods. There is an annual event called Damson Days held annually in Ludlow between the 25th September and the 9th October which celebrates the damson and Shropshire Prune.

    Have you had a whiplash injury in Shropshire?

    If you had been one of Henry IV’s knights, on the battle field near Shrewbury, had you been hit on the head by a shield, or other weighty object you could have suffered a whiplash injury in Shropshire as well as concussion, and perhaps this saved your life as the enemy thought you were dead. Of course, you wouldn’t have been able to make a personal injury compensation claim for that whiplash injury near Shropshire as you would have sustained the injury in combat and there were no such claims to make back in the early 15th century.

    Today, of course you may be able to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Shropshire, although that depends on your being able to prove certain things.

    Do I have grounds to make a claim?

    First of all you must be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured. You must also prove that your accident was solely the responsibility of another person.

    You need to have had immediate medical treatment for your injury as the medical report is necessary if you are to file a personal injury compensation claim.
