Sleat on the Isle of Skye in Scotland can seem remote and when people live in such places, they may find that jobs are difficult to come by. As a result you may have taken on shift work and are wondering how to cope. You may have to drive at all hours of the day or night and you may have a minor accident that leaves you with a whiplash injury in Sleat.
If that is the case, you could be thinking seriously about making a personal injury compensation claim for that whiplash injury in Sleat. If you are, why not contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and find out if you are eligible to make a claim? You can discuss your reasons for making a claim with one of our advisors and they will be able to tell you whether or not you have grounds to file a claim.
We can also put you in touch with an expert personal injury solicitor who works for clients on a no win, no fee* basis.
Am I eligible to make a claim?
First of all, and most importantly, you have to be able to prove (your lawyer can help you build a case) that you were not to blame for the accident. Then you must also prove that another person was responsible for it.
You should have received immediate medical treatment after the accident, and this can be proven by your medical report. This report is necessary so that if your claim is successful, the amount of compensation you might receive can be calculated. If the police were called to the accident scene (and when someone is injured in a road traffic accident, they should be called) then their accident report will also be required.
If your accident occurred within the British Isles, you usually have three years from its date to file a claim for personal injury compensation. That being said, however, you may have less time to claim for your whiplash injury in Sleat, so it might be best if you called us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have to file your particular claim.
