If you live in South Cave in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and have a whiplash injury, you may be thinking seriously about making a personal injury compensation claim. Of course you must be able to prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which you got your whiplash injury in South Cave. You must also be able to prove that your accident was caused by another person.
How did you get your injury?
You can have a whiplash injury in accidents other than those involving motorised vehicles. If you were horse riding, for example and a motorist sped past you and hooted the horn, your horse may have reared and thrown you. This is one way in which you may have sustained a whiplash injury in South Cave. In such a case, you could claim compensation for your injury from the driver of the vehicle who acted irresponsibly and was negligent of your safety.
You may have been hit on the head by a falling object as you were walking along the street. This could have resulted in a whiplash injury in South Cave. Perhaps at the time you were walking past a construction site. You could claim compensation from the owner of the site or the owner of the construction firm. Health and Safety regulations should always be adhered to and a failure to comply with them can lead to personal injury compensation claims.
Whiplash and road traffic accidents
If you sustained your whiplash injury in South Cave in a road traffic accident, then the police should have been called to the scene of the accident. They have to investigate the causes of accidents when people are injured. When their investigations are complete, they write an accident report which is needed if you go on to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Of course when you have been injured in an accident, you should seek immediate medical attention. Your medical report is required when you make a claim for injuries. This is used to calculate just how much you will receive in compensation for your pain, distress and suffering. However, this is just one element in the amount of compensation you could be entitled to.
