Southall is an area of West London and part of the London Borough of Ealing. Shopping in Southall market is like shopping in a bazaar in the Asian subcontinent, a truly wonderful experience. You can buy cloth for making the traditional shalwar kameez, and ready-made dupattas (shawls) as well as ripe mangoes and other fresh fruit and vegetables. There’s even an Indian pub that takes rupees as currency as well as pounds and there’s a Bollywood cinema in Southall, as you might expect given the nature of the population, and of course there are some incredible authentic restaurants there.
Have You Had a Whiplash Injury in Southall?
You may have had a whiplash injury in Southall because of the amazing sights to be seen there; you may not have noticed a bollard in your way, and fallen over it. You can actually get a whiplash injury in Southall in a number of accidents, not just in ones involving vehicles. If your head jerks violently in opposite directions, and causes a whiplash injury in Southall (or elsewhere of course) you tear the ligaments and tendons in your neck. You will need medical treatment, as soon as the symptoms appear; this may be up to twelve hours after the accident.
If you fell over a bollard because you simply didn’t notice it, you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim, as the accident would have been entirely your fault. In order to make a claim for injuries, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injuries was in no way your fault. You will also require the services of a personal injury solicitor who can help you prove that another person was to blame for the accident either directly or indirectly.
You should seek medical attention immediately after your accident.
