Silverdale is a village in Lancashire (in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) which has one of the best winter walks in the UK according to The Guardian and the National Trust. Because of erosion old quays are coming to light along the shoreline and there is an ore-smelting chimney which bears silent witness, along with the old lime kiln, to the fact that the area was once an industrial one. Lindeth Tower which is close to Silverdale once housed Elizabeth Gaskell, the Victorian author, who wrote ‘Cranford’ and ‘North and South,’ among other books. The Silverdale Hoard was discovered in a field just outside Silverdale in 2011 and is one of the largest Viking hoards found in the UK.
Have you had a whiplash injury near Silverdale?
If you have been out with your metal detector attempting to find another Silverdale Hoard, you may have sustained a whiplash injury near Silverdale if you slipped and fell in a muddy field. (You don’t just have whiplash injuries as a result of a car accident.) If you were trespassing in the field, you would not be able to claim personal injury compensation for your whiplash injury near Silverdale as it would have been your fault and no one else’s. On the other hand, if you had been walking along a public footpath in a field full of cows, they may have become hostile and attacked you, leaving you with some broken bones and a whiplash injury near Silverdale as well. You may be eligible to make a claim for such injuries as the farmer should only keep animals that are not likely to attack people in fields with public access.
What must I prove to make a claim?
First of all you have to be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. You and your personal injury lawyer have to build a case to prove that the accident was the fault of another person. You must also be able to produce your medical report which shows the extent of your injuries and a prognosis regarding the likelihood of a full recovery, and the time this might take. You should have received immediate medical treatment for your injury and be able to prove that there was no unreasonable delay, as some injuries can be worsened if they are not treated straight away.
