    Whiplash injury in Slimbridge


    Slimbridge is a village in Gloucestershire and you might have visited it because you wanted to go to the Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetland Trust. Unfortunately, accidents can happen anywhere, and you might have been invlved in a road traffic accident and suffered a whiplash injury in Slimbridge, in which case you could be reading this because you are wondering if you could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Of course, you may have sustained your whiplash injury in Slimbridge in a different kind of accident. Perhaps you were being chased by geese and slipped and fell awkwardly and the fall left you with a whiplash injury. You could have sustained a whiplash injury in Slimbridge in a number of ways, as such injuries can be caused when you suffer a blow to the head which makes it move in opposite directions very rapidly. Rugby players can get whiplash injuries if they are brought down by a tackle. Boxers are also prone to such injuries.

    Can I claim compensation?

    In order to make a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Slimbridge (or any other personal injury) you have to be able to prove that the accident was the fault of another person and not yours.

    If you were chased by wild geese and sustained a whiplash injury, you would not be eligible to make a claim for compensation as there must be a person to file a claim against. If the geese were on farmland and owned, and you were not trespassing, it may be that you could file a claim against the farmer who owned them.

    If you sustained a whiplash injury while playing rugby and it was caused by an illegal tackle, then you may also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.
