St Boswells is a village in Scotland in the Scottish Borders area. It gets its name from St Boisil who was a monk at nearby Melrose Abbey. It seems that St Boisil could predict certain things and it was he who recognised the potential holiness in St Cuthbert, who was his pupil. It was the presence of St Boisil at Melrose Abbey that drew Cuthbert to it, rather than to the more prestigious Lindisfarne. St Boswell’s is in fact on the old pilgrimage route, St Cuthbert’s Way, which links Melrose Abbey to the island of Lindisfarne off the coast of Northumberland. Today St Boswell’s is famous for its annual Gypsy Fair, although this is not as popular with the Romany as it once was.
Are you going to have a whiplash injury in St Boswells?
One thing that St Boisil and the Romany have in common is an ability to predict the future. One of the Romany at the annual gypsy fair in St Boswells, might for instance tell you that you would suffer a whiplash injury in St Boswell. You might avoid travelling by car only to find yourself with a whiplash injury in St Boswell because you had been hit on the head by a falling object. It isn’t only in car accidents that you can sustain a whiplash injury.
Can I make an injury claim?
If you have or had a whiplash injury in St Boswells, you could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim. If you can prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured and also prove that it was another person’s fault, then you may be able to make a claim. You would have to have had medical treatment for your injury also, as your medical records are needed in the claims’ process.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If the accident in which you were injured occurred in the British Isles, you usually have three years from its date to file a claim. This isn’t always the case, however, and for some accidents you only have nine months to file a claim. The best thing you can do is to call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you actually have to file your particular personal injury compensation claim.
