Stamford is a town in Lincolnshire which has been described as the ‘finest stone town in England.’ It has been the location for several television costume dramas such as the adaptation of George Eliot’s ‘Middlemarch,’ and Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice.’ You can wander down its cobbled lanes and imagine that you have been transported back in time, as there are many well preserved buildings in the town from times gone by. It still hosts an annual autumn fair in October, along with a French market, and there are beer festivals and the Christmas festival, so it’s a vibrant town. However, accidents can occur anywhere, so if you do go wandering down the older alleyways, wear sensible shoes, as you wouldn’t want to slip and end up with a whiplash injury in Stamford.

Making a claim
If you sustained your whiplash injury in Stamford as a result of a road traffic accident, the police should have been called. They will have investigated the cause of the accident and then produced a police report which you will need if you are to file a personal injury compensation claim.
You should have had medical treatment as soon as you possibly could after the accident, and your medical report will be required if you make a claim for your injuries.
How long do I have to make a claim?
As long as any accident took place in this country, you would usually expect to have three years from its date to make a claim. However there are some accidents and injuries which you must claim for in a much shorter time frame. For example if you are injured in an accident in an airport, you only have two years to file a claim. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have, to file your particular claim.
