Whiplash From… Portable Toilet?!

18 Jul, 2012


When people think of whiplash compensation they primarily think of car accidents. While it is true that this is the case most of the time, it is also possible to sustain whiplash in other ways.

Other ways include motorbike accidents, push bike accidents and trips and falls. An particularly odd example of a man experiencing whiplash symptops has recently been reported in Hunstanton.

A festival-goer in Hunstanton was injured when the portable toilet cubicle he was in was pushed over with the door landing on the ground, trapping him inside.

The male victim was staying at the campsite set up for Lifestyles when he went to the toilet at around 2am on Saturday, June 2. He entered a cubicle on site and after a moment felt the structure being pushed. It fell over onto the door, trapping the man who suffered minor whiplash and a sore shoulder from the incident….More at Hunstanton Lifestyles Festival camper injured as portable loo pushed over

While it is not known if the man will be pursuing a personal injury claim, if the festival organisers are found to be accountable in anyway then it is more than likely that a claim would be successful.

So keep in mind that whether you suffered whiplash due to a car accident, fall at a supermarket or a portable toilet incident then contact us now!
