St Blazey Gate is a village in Cornwall close to St Blazey. It grew up around the toll gate on the St Austell road so is not as old as its neighbour, only dating back to the 19th century. In the church yard of St Blazey Gate, there is an ancient mediaeval base of a cross, which was inscribed although this inscription is illegible now. It was moved to the churchyard of St Mary’s church from Biscovey farm, where it had been used as a gate post.
Have you had a whiplash injury in St Blazey Gate?
It is possible to sustain a whiplash injury in St Blazey Gate in various types of accidents; for example, you might suffer after being struck on the head, or if something heavy hit your body causing your head to jolt in opposing directions. If you are a boxer, a punch to the head could give you a whiplash injury in St Blazey Gate. You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for that whiplash injury in St Blazey Gate if you can prove that you were not to blame for the accident in which you sustained it. You also need to prove that another person was to blame for the accident. You will probably need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer to do this, as it is not always immediately obvious who was to blame for your accident.
