Compensation win for Essex dance girl


A recent damages payout has reminded the personal injury world that car accidents are not the only cause of serious whiplash injury.

A dancer from Frinton, Essex has received compensation after suffering a fall while performing a routine during a dance class at a Colchester performing arts institute. As well as sustaining whiplash, the student suffered a spinal injury and concussion.

The claimant recalled, "I couldn't move - I couldn't even lift a kettle. There were times I thought I was never going to be able to move again."

There were days when I couldn't imagine what I would be doing with my life if I couldn't dance, because that was all that I had ever done since the age of three."

The whiplash claimant indicated that she did not make the compensation claim for monetary gain, saying, "The only reason I did it was so it doesn't happen again. I don't want this to happen to anyone else."

It is understood that her settlement amounted to a "modest" sum.
