Stobo estate and castle is in Peebleshire, Scotland. The castle that can be seen today was built in the 19th century, although it was built on the site of a much older castle. Stobo Kirk (church) is quite close to the castle and is one of the oldest churches in Scotland, having been built in 1120. The land around Stobo and the place itself was once owned by James Douglas the 4th Earl of Morton, but, because of his involvement in the murder of Lord Darnley, he lost his rights to the castle and land he owned and these passed to the Crown. It has, in fact been the home of many different families over its turbulent history. At the present time, Stobo castle is a luxury hotel and spa.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Stobo?
There are numerous ways in which you could have sustained a whiplash injury in Stobo, although we usually think of car accidents when we hear the phrase ‘whiplash injury’.

Sometimes you are able to make a personal injury compensation claim for injuries arising from an accident, but you must be able to prove that another person was responsible for your accident and that you were in no way to blame for it. You also need your medical report when you make a claim, so you should have received medical treatment as soon as you possibly could after your accident.
How long do I have to file my claim?
If the accident in which you were injured took place in the UK, you normally have three years from its date to make your claim. Naturally though, there are exceptions to this rule, and sometimes you only have months to file a claim. It is always best to file a claim as soon as you can as the process can be a lengthy one. Find out now from us at Accident Advice Helpline exactly how long you have to file your potential claim.
If your accident took place at sea, in the air, or at most airports in the world, you can claim for your injuries if you file a claim within two years of the accident’s date. You can also make a claim for injuries sustained during a crime through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, but again, you only have two years to do this.
