Has an accident left you with a whiplash injury in Soho?
Soho, in the City of Westminster in London’s West End, is a popular destination for an evening on the town. You may have been involved in an accident on the way to a restaurant there, so it could be that you sustained a whiplash injury in Soho and perhaps other injuries as well. At this very moment you could be wondering if you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries. If so, continue reading this article.
Am I able to make a claim?
In order to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Soho or elsewhere, you must be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident. If you had been drinking and then sustained your injury, you would not be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. You must also be able to prove that another person was responsible for the accident.
You have to file a claim within three years (or sometimes less) for injuries sustained in accidents within the UK. If you are unsure about how long you have to make your potential claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You must also have had medical treatment as soon as you possibly could after the accident. Your medical report will be needed if you proceed with a claim for your whiplash injury in Soho.
If you were in an accident involving one or more motorised vehicles, the police should have been called to the scene. They have to investigate the causes of such accidents and on completion of their investigation, they write an accident report which is also required as evidence.
