You’re busy, with a job and plenty of other things to keep you occupied; perhaps you have a family, too, in which case, you will definitely have a full timetable.
All of a sudden, you get a whiplash injury in St James’s. It really knocks you for six. It’s not so much the pain, stiffness and tenderness, although that is certainly uncomfortable.
What you really notice is the disruption to your everyday life. You can’t do what you normally would; in fact, you’ve even had to take some time off work so you can recover.
You’re pleased that whiplash cases usually clear up within a few weeks, and it will be a relief when that time comes. But you’re a bit worried about your finances. Taking those few days off work meant that you lost vital pay, and to stop things from getting out of control, you’ve had to hire a home help. You’ve also had to take taxis to get out and about.
A friend visits you and suggests to you that you should claim compensation for your whiplash injury in St James’s. What do you do?
