Stamford Hill is in the London borough of Hackney, and is famous due to the fact that it has the highest number of Hasidic Jews than any other place in Europe. Stamford Hill was probably founded because of its proximity to the Roman road of Ermine Street which ran from London to York. Because of this, many coaches and carriages went through Stamford Hill and in the 18th century the heavy horse-drawn wagons were damaging the road’s surface so much so that the villagers managed to petition parliament and set up a turnpike trust so that the tolls could go towards maintaining the road. Probably quite a few people in those days suffered a whiplash injury in Stamford Hill as the state of the road would have made for a very bumpy journey.
Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Stamford Hill?
These days travel is less hazardous in many ways than it was in the past (in the days of horse-drawn coaches, for example). However, accidents do happen and if you have been involved in one and suffered a whiplash injury in Stamford Hill, for example, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
In order to be able to make a claim for that whiplash injury in Stamford Hill, you need to be able to prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which it was sustained. As an extension to this, you also must prove that another person was entirely to blame for it.
Documentation required to make a claim
You will need to have a copy of your medical report and present this to your personal injury lawyer. You should have received medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident. The medical report will help assessors decide how much compensation you should receive for the pain, distress and suffering that your injury caused.
If you sustained your whiplash injury in Stamford Hill in a road traffic accident you will also need the police report. The police should be called to the scene of an accident if anyone is injured in one involving a car or other motorised vehicle.
