Stilton is a village in Cambridgeshire (as well as the name of famous cheeses). Archaeological finds have proven that there was a Neolithic settlement in Stilton Fen, as well as Roman kilns and a later (possible) Saxon village. A complete Roman cheese press was also found, which just goes to show that cheeses have been made for centuries. In the 18th and early 19th century, Stilton was a stopping place for the mail coach that travelled along the Great North Road. Although Stilton cheese is not currently produced in Stilton (there are hopes that it could be, though) there is an annual cheese rolling competition in the village. If you have joined in the cheese rolling event you may have had a whiplash injury in Stilton.
Have you sustained a whiplash injury in Stilton?
If you were dashing through the street running while crouched low to roll your Stilton cheese, you may have been accidentally knocked off your feet by another contestant’s cheese and this could have resulted in your whiplash injury in Stilton. As this would have been a genuine accident (presumably) you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. However if you sustained your whiplash injury in Stilton in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, but that of another person, you may be eligible to make a claim for it.

You may not be feeling very well and we can take the stress away from you.
You can discuss the reasons you have for making your claim, and a personal injury lawyer can tell you whether or not you have good enough grounds to make a claim.
