    Whiplash injury in Somerset

    If you live in Somerset and are suffering from a whiplash injury and other injuries too, perhaps, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. If you were involved in a road traffic accident, and you and others were injured, the police and an ambulance should have been called to the accident scene.

    Of course, you may not have sustained your particular whiplash injury in Somerset as a result of a traffic accident. You may have received a blow to the head, because you were hit by a falling object as you were walking down the street. You might have been the victim of an illegal tackle in a game of football or rugby and this could also have left you with a whiplash injury in Somerset. As Somerset is famous for its apples and cider, you may have fallen out of an apple tree and sustained your injury. It may be possible for you to make a personal injury compensation claim if you were injured in such accidents.

    However, if you had been climbing an apple tree after drinking a little too much cider, you would not be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for your whiplash injury in Somerset, as you have to be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. You also have to prove that another person was to blame for your accident.

    Personal injury lawyers

    You may need a personal injury lawyer to help you build a case to prove who exactly was responsible for your accident and that whiplash injury in Somerset. If you think you do, then contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will introduce you to a suitable lawyer who represents clients on a no win, no fee basis.

    You may need a lawyer to prove who exactly was responsible for your accident and injury, as it may not be immediately apparent who was, in fact, to blame. For example, if you have an accident in the street and trip over a piece of broken paving and bang your head, this could cause a whiplash injury. There may not have been anyone else around, but such an accident would have been the fault of the local authority whose duty it is to maintain streets and pavements. If the street is not well-maintained the local authority could be proven negligent as this duty had not been fulfilled.
