    Whiplash Injury in Stenness


    Stenness in the Orkneys (Scotland) is famous because it has the oldest stone circle in that group of islands. The Standing Stones of Stenness, on the island of Mainland Orkney, date back to 3100 B.C. and there are other Neolithic monuments in the vicinity. The Loch of Stenness is close to the standing stones, and is a Special Area of Conservation as well as a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its biodiversity and brackish nature. There are trout to be had in the loch, and it is possible that you were trying to catch one when you cast your line awkwardly, slipped and as a consequence had a whiplash injury in Stenness.

    Have you had a whiplash injury in Stenness?

    If you are still suffering with your whiplash injury in Stenness you may be in some pain and be cursing your luck, especially if you sustained that injury in an accident which was totally your fault. If, however, you got your whiplash injury near Stenness because of an accident that you can prove was the fault of another person and not yours in any way, you might be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim. You will, naturally have had to have had medical treatment for your injury as soon as you could after the accident, as your medical report will be needed.

    How long do I have to make my claim?

    The length of time you have to file a personal injury compensation claim depends on the type of accident in which you got that whiplash injury in Stenness. However, you usually have three years from the date of the accident to file a claim. That being said though, you may have as few as nine months to make you claim and when the deadline is up you cannot then claim for your injuries. It would be best to call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly how long you have to file your particular claim.

    Accidents with 2 years to file a claim

    If you were injured in an accident at sea, in the air, or at most airports in the world, you have two years from the date of the accident in which to file a claim. This is also the case if you were injured while a crime was taking place. In that case you have two years to claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
