South Glasgow or Glasgow South Side has many tourist attractions and also has a ‘village’ feel to it. Visitors can go to Pollock Park and House and Bellahouston Park, (the latter was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh) as well as to the Glasgow Science Centre, located on Pacific Quay on the River Clyde. However, take care, as you wouldn’t want to slip and fall and have a whiplash injury in South Glasgow.
Have you got a whiplash injury in South Glasgow?
Right now you may be feeling particularly sorry for yourself, because you are suffering with a whiplash injury in South Glasgow. Perhaps you are wondering if you could possibly make a claim for your injury. In order to make a personal injury compensation claim for your whiplash injury in South Glasgow (or any other injury sustained in an accident), you have to be able to prove that the accident was not your fault. You must also be able to prove that it was caused by someone else, as there must be a person to file a claim against.
If you decide to file a personal injury compensation claim you should have sought medical treatment for your injuries immediately after your accident. Your medical report will be required if you make a claim so that the amount of compensation awarded for the pain, distress and suffering can be calculated.
How long do you have to make a claim?
If the accident in which you were injured happened in the British Isles, you would normally have three years from its date in which to make your claim. However, this is not always true of all accidents. You should begin the claims process as soon as you can so that you do not lose out on the right to claim compensation. Once the time limit is up, you can only make a claim under exceptional circumstances; for example, if you had been in a coma for three years, then you could not have made a claim in that time.
