St Day is a village in Cornwall with a long history of tin and copper mining, just like other places in Cornwall and it is located in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. In the past, pilgrims passed through St Day on their way from Canterbury (the shrine of Thomas Becket) to St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall. The name St Day was first written in the 14th century, being recorded as “The Manor of Tolgullow also St Day”, with Tolgullow being regarded by some as a shrine in Cornwall second only to that of St Michael’s Mount. Nothing is known of St Day, except that his (or perhaps her) feast day is held on the 18th January. The centre of the village of St Day is a designated conservation area.
Have you had a whiplash injury in St Day?
If you had been a tin or copper miner back in the Industrial Revolution, you might easily have had a whiplash injury near St Day if you were hit on the head or in any type of accident in which your head was jolted in opposite directions. You don’t have to have been involved in a car crash to get a whiplash injury in St Day, or elsewhere, for that matter. If you currently have a whiplash injury in St Day, you may be wondering if you have good grounds for making a claim for your injury.
What do I need to prove to make an injury claim?
The most crucial point you have to prove if you wish to make a personal injury compensation claim is that you were in no way to blame for the accident in which you were injured. Secondly you must be able to prove that another person was responsible for the accident (after all there has to be someone to make a claim against). Of course, if you have been injured, you would have received medical attention and you will need to produce your medical report if you are to go ahead with your personal injury compensation claim.
How long do I have to make my claim?
You normally have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the UK to make your claim. However, this is not always the case, so to find out precisely how long you have to file your claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
