South Molton is a small town in north Devon on the banks of the River Mole, with a certain emphasis on food; the Quince Honey Farm is home to the largest exhibition of honey bees in the world and there is also a Chocolate Factory, so it is an ideal place for people with a sweet tooth. South Molton has a long history as the area was settled in Saxon times, when it was called Dumnania. The town of South Molton grew around the church in the Middle Ages, with its wealth coming from the wool trade. The town was granted market charters by Elizabeth I (1590) and Charles I (1684) and this tradition continues, with the main market being held on Thursdays and a further on held on Saturdays.
Have you had a whiplash injury in South Molton?
You may be suffering from the symptoms of a whiplash injury in South Molton right now. If you can prove that the accident in which you suffered that whiplash injury in South Molton was not your fault, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for it. Of course, you must be able to prove that the accident was caused by another person who was totally responsible for it. Suppose a stray sheep charged at you from behind on a market day and caught you unawares and off-balance. This collision may have caused your whiplash injury in South Molton as these injuries can be caused in accidents other than road traffic ones.
If a sheep was responsible for your injury (or a cow for that matter) then you and your personal injury lawyer could probably build a case to show that the negligence of the farmer who owned the sheep was responsible for your accident and injury.
Accidents in the street
If you have an accident in the street and are injured, you should call the police who will write a report which can be used as evidence in a future personal injury compensation claim. You should also call an ambulance as you will also need a medical report to make a future claim. Of course this is imperative whether or not you make a claim, as failure to treat what appears to be a minor injury can be dangerous, as if some injuries are not treated they become much worse.
