    Whiplash Injury in Sinnington


    Sinnington is a village in Yorkshire, on the boundary of the North York Moors National Park. It is a traditional English village in that it is built around the village green which has a river running through it. Sinnington Hall is a grade I listed building or rather a monument as it is now sadly not all of it remains. It is thought to have been built in the 12th century with additions to it made in the 15th. Sinnington Grange mill is a Grade II listed building, which began its life as a corn mill in the 19th century, so it is still a youngster in comparison to the much older Hall and the village of Sinnington itself, which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.

    Had a whiplash injury in Sinnington?

    Had you been a miller in the 19th century you might easily have got a whiplash injury in Sinnington if a sack of corn had fallen and hit you on the head. (It isn’t just in car accidents that you can sustain a whiplash injury.) As the miller, you could hardly have blamed anyone else for your accident, so even if there had been personal injury compensation claims to file at that time (there weren’t), you would have been ineligible to file one. That is because in order to make a claim for an injury you have to be able to prove that you were in no way to blame for the accident in which you sustained it.

    When you can and can’t make a claim

    If you have a whiplash injury in Sinnington as a result of a car accident, you must be able to prove that someone else was at fault. If, for example you were driving along a country lane and hit a wild deer, you would be unable to make a personal injury compensation claim because no one else could have been to blame, as a wild deer doesn’t belong to anyone. If, however, you had hit a cow and sustained a whiplash injury near Sinnington, then you could be eligible to make a claim for your injury against the farmer who owned the animal.

    You also have to have had medical treatment for your injury as soon as possible after the accident, as a medical report is required if you are to make a claim for injuries.
