Whiplash Injury in South Ockendon


At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) South Ockendon (in Essex) was a manor, with much of the land being given over to arable farming. There’s a boxing club in South Ockendon now, and of course, boxers now wear protective head gear, which is to prevent injuries. Without a helmet a boxer might get a whiplash injury in South Ockendon after receiving a blow to the head. If the punch thrown was judged illegal then it might be possible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the person who threw the punch, although if they don’t have insurance to cover such contingencies, it might be a pointless exercise.

Making a claim for an injury

In order to be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim you must be able to prove that the accident in which you received your injury was not your fault, but that someone else was to blame for it.

Naturally you would have had medical treatment for your injury, and you would need your medical records to support any potential personal injury compensation claim you were to make.

Accidents on farms

Farms are very dangerous places to work as there are so many heavy vehicles to maintain and operate. Also the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are concerned that farmers do not carry out thorough risk assessments before doing a job themselves, or having a worker do it. If a risk assessment has not been carried out and you (as a worker) have an accident you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer, who will have public liability insurance to cover all such potential claims (the money doesn’t come out of your employer’s pocket).
