    Whiplash injury in South Petherton


    Whiplash injury in South Petherton

    South Petherton is a historic market town in Somerset. It was granted its charter by King John in 1213. It lies close to the River Parrett and it is believed that it derived its name from the words pared (meaning boundary) and ton meaning settlement. There is evidence in the form of Paleolithic flints to show that the area around South Petherton has been inhabited for thousands of years, and due to the fertility of the land in the area there have been numerous finds from the Romano-British era. The Domesday Book (1086) records a Minster in South Petherton which was held by a priest name Alviet. The main industry around South Petherton has been farming, although now it is also attempting to attract tourists to supplement its wealth.

    Have You Had a Whiplash Injury in South Petherton?

    You may have taken a metal detector to a field close to the village. It may have indicated metal under the topsoil, causing you to fall over the detector in excitement. This accident could have resulted in a whiplash injury in South Petherton, especially if you banged your head. You wouldn’t have been able to make a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in South Petherton if you had sustained one in this way, as the accident would have been entirely your fault.

    In order to be eligible to make a claim for a whiplash injury in South Petherton, you have to be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident and that another person was at fault.

    If you have an accident, of course you should receive immediate medical treatment for your injuries. You will need the medical report in order to make a claim.

    How Long Do I Have to Make a Claim?

    If the accident in which you sustained your injuries took place within the UK, you normally have three years to make a claim. However, that is not always the case, and there are some types of accident (and so their resulting injuries), that must be claimed for in a much shorter time frame. To find out how long you have to claim for the injuries arising from your particular accident, call us at Accident Advice Helpline now.
