Stanton by Dale is a village in Derbyshire, half way between Derby and Nottingham. The name Stanton reflects the fact that stone was quarried near the village (“stone settlement” is the meaning of Stanton). The village grew thanks to the iron works, founded in the Industrial Revolution. Conditions in foundries in those days were harsh, and if a worker fell and banged his head, he may have suffered from a whiplash injury in Stanton by Dale, but at that time there were no personal injury compensation claims to be made (and certainly not to be made against employers). Nowadays things have happily changed and if you are injured at work or become ill with a work-related illness, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.
Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Stanton by Dale?
If you have had a whiplash injury in Stanton by Dale within the last three years, you may still be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim for it. You will have to be able to prove, with the help of a personal injury lawyer, that the accident in which you sustained your whiplash injury in Stanton by Dale was not your fault. Your lawyer will also need to build a case to prove that the accident was definitely caused by another person.
Am I eligible to make an injury claim?
If you can prove the points mentioned above, then you might be eligible to make a claim for your injuries. You should have received immediate medical attention for them and be in possession of your medical report as this will be needed to calculate part of the amount of compensation you might receive if your claim is successful.
If you sustained your whiplash injury in Stanton by Dale in a road traffic accident involving one or more motorised vehicles the police should have been called to the scene of the accident. The police must attend any road traffic accidents involving cars and so on, when someone has been injured. After they complete their investigations into the accident, they will write a report and you will need this police report to file a claim.
