Stansted is a village in Kent (not near the airport of the same name, which is in Essex). Its name means ‘stony place’, coming from the Old English words for these modern ones. The church of St Margaret in the village was probably built in the early 14th century, when the yew tree that is still standing outside the church porch was a mere 300 years old. There had been an earlier church on the site, historians suppose. Church Cottage is the oldest house in Stansted, and was probably built around the same time as the church for the use of a priest who would have come from nearby Wrotham to minister to the flock at Stansted. If you go for a walk along the country lanes near Stansted, keep an eye out for adders; you might not like them, and if you flee from one, it’s possible you might trip and ultimately suffer from a whiplash injury in Stansted.
Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Stansted?
Perhaps you are contemplating your bad luck because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time and were involved in a violent crime or an accident in which you sustained a whiplash injury in Stansted. If you can prove that you were a victim of the crime in which you sustained your whiplash injury in Stansted, or if you can prove that you were in no way to blame for the accident in which you were injured, you could be eligible to claim for that whiplash injury in Stansted.
How long do I have to make my claim?
