    Whiplash injury in Stevenston


    Stevenston is one of the “Three Towns” (along with Ardrossan and Saltcoats) in Ayrshire, Scotland. It is named after one of the owners of the land, Stephen Loccard or Lockhart and is first mentioned in a written document dating back to somewhere around 1240. There were coal mines in the area in the 18th century and there was a quarry famous for Stevenston Stone, a white sandstone, then in the middle of the 19th century the ironworks was founded, but this closed in 1931 and demolished a few years later. Now there is a regeneration plan for Stevenston in the hope of attracting more people to the area and this will make it better known as a coastal resort, rather than an industrial town. Stevenston beach is a designated Nature Reserve with several rare species of plants and animals living there.

    Have you had a whiplash injury in Stevenston?

    Be careful if you venture onto the sand dunes on the beach, because the winter storms have caused erosion and you might fall and suffer a whiplash injury in Stevenston. You may be unpleasantly surprised to discover that you might get a whiplash injury in Stevenston in an accident other than in a road traffic accident. That is the case however, as you can get a whiplash injury in Stevenston if you have a blow or punch to the head, or if you are hit elsewhere on the body and fall because of the sudden impact.

    Are you thinking of making an injury claim?

    If you are contemplating filing a personal injury compensation claim there are three things to bear in mind.

    1. You must be able to prove, with the help of a personal injury lawyer, that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured.
    2. You also have to prove without a doubt that another person was responsible for your accident.
    3. You must have received medical treatment as soon as possible after the accident because your medical report is required if you are to make a claim for injuries.

    How long do you have to make your claim?

    If your accident occurred in the UK then you could expect to have three years from its date to file a claim. However, this is not always the case, and you may only have nine months to make your claim. To find out precisely how long you have in which to claim for your injuries, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
