Whiplash Injury in Skelmorlie


Skelmorlie is a village in Ayrshire, Scotland, with its own castle. Close to the castle is the ‘serpent mound’ which might be a natural formation, but archaeological excavations revealed a paved platform, bones and charcoal, leading some people to speculate that it might have been a religious site, perhaps Druidic, for the worship of the sun and snakes. Skelmorlie castle was built around 1502 and for centuries was home to the Clan Montgomerie. It was at Skelmorlie that the Royal Navy measured the nautical mile in the Firth of Clyde, with two iron poles marking the distance on land. If you had tried to climb one of those corroded poles (in later years), it may well have broken under your weight and you might have suffered a whiplash injury in Skelmorlie.

Have you had a whiplash injury in Skelmorlie?

If you have recently had a whiplash injury in Skelmorlie, you might be thinking about filing a personal injury compensation claim. However, you may be wondering how you should proceed and whether or not you have grounds to make a claim.

Your first consideration should be whether or not you, together with a personal injury lawyer, can prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which you sustained your whiplash injury in Skelmorlie. Secondly you must be able to prove conclusively that another person was to blame for the accident, as there must be someone to file a claim against.

You will also need to produce your medical report, so you should have received treatment for your injury as soon as possible after the accident.

How much compensation might I receive?

This is a usual question which unfortunately has no definitive answer. There is simply no way of accurately predicting how much compensation you might receive. However, if you go to the main pages on this Accident Advice Helpline website, you could take the 30-Second Test, which will rapidly calculate a rough estimate of the amount of compensation you might be awarded if your claim is successful.

For a minor case of whiplash, when you recover from the injury fully within six weeks to a year, you could receive between £1,705 and £3,520 for the pain, distress and suffering caused by the injury. You might also receive compensation for loss of earnings and any expenses you incurred as a direct result of your injury. You can also claim for other things such as loss of amenity or quality of life if applicable. Because there are so many factors to take into consideration when calculating compensation it is impossible to say who much you might be awarded.
