South Yorkshire has reinvented itself. In the 20th century it was an industrial heartland, but now, in the 21st century it is more and more of a tourist attraction, with ancient villages rubbing shoulders (as it were) with modern entertainment centres. You can visit old houses and perhaps meet a ghost in Carbrook Hall (dating back to the 17th century) in Sheffield, which has earned itself the reputation of being the most haunted public house in the country, having four resident ghosts.
Have you sustained a whiplash injury in South Yorkshire?
If you fell and suffered a whiplash injury in South Yorkshire because a ghost had terrified you so much that you weren’t aware of where you were going, you probably wouldn’t be able to file a claim for the injury. This is because in order to be able to claim for a whiplash injury in South Yorkshire, you must be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident. You must also prove that someone else was responsible for it; as you can’t sue a ghost for damages, you wouldn’t be entitled to claim for that whiplash injury in South Yorkshire.
Of course, if you are injured in any type of accident, you should have immediate medical treatment.
How do you find a personal injury lawyer?
You can look in the local telephone directory and ring several firms of solicitors to find out if they handle claims for people who have been injured in accidents similar to yours, or you can look online and then call the lawyers offices. Alternatively you can make one call to us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will be able to put you in touch with one of our team of specialist personal injury lawyers who all work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
You will be able to discuss your grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim and the lawyer will be able to tell you if you have good reasons for making a claim. That is the start of the process, and you can begin it with just one simple phone call to us.
How long do you have to make a claim?
Usually you have three years to make a claim if the accident in which you were injured happened in the UK. However, some accident and the injuries arising from them must be claimed for within months rather than years. To find out how long you have to file your claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
