Stocksbridge is a town within the boundaries of the City of Sheffield, in South Yorkshire, situated at the edges of the Pennines and the Peak District National Park. Stocksbridge allegedly has a haunted by-pass, and if you drive down it at night you might get spooked by the spectre of a monk who may materialize inside your vehicle. Naturally enough, if this happened to you, it might cause you to swerve and hit something, thus giving you a whiplash injury in Stocksbridge. There have also been reports of groups of children singing and dancing in the vicinity of Pearoyd bridge, and it is supposed that these are the ghosts of the many children who fell down mine shafts in the area.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Stocksbridge?
If you have had a whiplash injury near Stocksbridge and it was, in fact caused by the sudden appearance of the ghostly monk in your car, you wouldn’t be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for a number of reasons. First of all no one would believe you (probably) and so the accident would have been entirely your fault (even if the ghost was ‘real’). Secondly you can’t claim personal injury compensation from a ghost.
In order to be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim for that whiplash injury in Stocksbridge, you have to be able to prove that you were not to blame in any way for the accident in which you sustained it. You also have to prove that another person was responsible for your accident.
Your medical report will be needed if you make a claim for injuries, so your injuries should have been treated as soon as possible after your accident.
How do I find a personal injury lawyer?
You could find a personal injury lawyer online or if you go through the local telephone directory. However, you may have to make a number of calls to different firms of solicitors before you find one who has the expertise and experience you need to help you with your claim. This is because, as there are so many different types of accident, lawyers tend to have expertise in just one or two areas of the laws relating to accidents and compensation. You may not be fully recovered from your injuries, and might not feel up to this time-consuming task, so why not phone us at Accident Advice Helpline as we will probably be able to put you in contact with one of our specialist lawyers who works on a no win, no fee basis?
