    Whiplash Injury in St Austell


    St Austell is a town and coastal resort in Cornwall. In the Domesday Book (1086) it is mentioned as St Awstle, although its name comes from the Cornish saint, Austol. The early inhabitants of what is now the town of St Austell were tin miners, but later copper mines were dug and in the time of Elizabeth I the demand for copper had grown so much that German miners were brought in to mine it in 1580. In 1865 however, there was a dramatic downturn in the price of copper and many mines closed, so miners emigrated to Australia, America and South Africa. The town flourished once again with the mining of china clay and there is, in fact, a China Clay Museum in St Austell celebrating its past source of wealth.

    Have you suffered a whiplash injury in St Austell?

    If you have been involved in an accident and suffered a whiplash injury in St Austell, you might be seriously considering the prospect of making a personal injury compensation claim. If you are, you may be wondering how to go about making one.

    First of all, if you have had a whiplash injury in St Austell in any type of accident, you must be able to prove conclusively that you were not to blame for the accident. Secondly, you must also be able to demonstrate that another person was responsible for it.

    Of course, if you have had a whiplash injury in St Austell, or any other type of injury, you will have seen a doctor who will have added a report to your medical records. This will be needed if you are to make a claim for your injury.

    How long do you have to make a claim?

    If you have been injured in an accident in the UK you usually have three years from its date to make a personal injury compensation claim. However, there are some accidents that incur a much shorter limitation period and you may only have nine months to make your claim. If you have been injured in an accident outside the UK, at sea, in the air or at an airport, you have only two years to make a claim for your injuries. To find out how long you actually have to make your particular personal injury compensation claim, why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline?
