    Whiplash injury in South Norwood


    South Norwood is a district in South Eastern London. South Norwood Lake is a haven for anglers who can fish for carp, bream and perch in its waters. However, if you go fishing, take care, as when casting your line, you could stumble, fall backwards and get a whiplash injury in South Norwood.

    Have You Had a Whiplash Injury in South Norwood?

    You may have had a whiplash injury in South Norwood in any type of accident. Your head moved may have moved violently in two opposite directions very rapidly, causing whiplash. This also might have been the result of impact or because you had a blow to the head.

    If you have had a whiplash injury in South Norwood and can prove that the accident in which you sustained it was not your fault, but that of another person, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. Why not discuss the possibility of making a claim with one of the expert personal injury lawyers on our Accident Advice Helpline team?

    Criteria for Making an Injury Claim

    First of all, and most importantly, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. Secondly you must be able to prove, with the help of a personal injury lawyer, that the accident was caused by another person (as you must have someone to make a claim against).

    In order to make a claim, you must have had medical treatment as soon as you possibly could have done after the accident, as a medical report is required.

    How Long do I Have to Make a Claim?

    If the accident in which you were injured took place in the UK, you usually have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, as there are some accidents and injuries, which carry a limitation period of months rather than years, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers to find out how long you have to file your particular claim.

    Accidents with 2 Years to Claim

    If you are injured in an accident at sea, in the air or at almost any airport in the world (the country must have signed the Montreal Convention), you only have two years in which to claim for your injuries. You also only have two years to claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you were injured while a crime was being committed.
