The impact of whiplash can be devastating and often traumatising for many reasons. For many people, it will cause a long and painful course of treatment and in turn will cause great distress in many areas of your life. The nature of the injury most often means that you are unlikely to be able to work for at least some of your recovery time. As a result, you can lose out on wages which may cause you great financial difficulty. Financial burdens on top of the physical and emotional stress from which you are already suffering are all the result of an unfortunate accident.
Once you have reached a full and complete recovery then you may have a case to make a claim for compensation for whiplash. Whiplash is typically caused by people who experience road traffic accidents at speeds of 15 miles per hour or less. In an accident that is a result of negligence on the part of an individual and you are not at fault, you could certainly make a claim. This is also the case for other causes of whiplash, where proper safety precautions have not been taken by those parties who are responsible and you have been injured as a result.
When you suffer an injury such as whiplash – one which prevents you from going about your daily routine – you will probably have to take time off of work, and pay for expensive travel to and from doctor’s appointments and specialist clinics, then you are likely to be left with a large bill. When the accident was not your fault, it is not fair that you should have to carry the burden of the costs taken to aid your recovery and this is where you can make a claim for compensation.
Compensation from the whiplash injury will be there to cover the additional costs and financial loss which you have had as a result of the injury. There are thousands of successful whiplash claims made by people every year. There are no reasons why your case should be any less valuable than any other of these whiplash cases.

We work to ensure that you get all of the information you need to help you decide whether or not to pursue your claim and will help to make the process as easy as possible.
Whiplash does not have any overt external injuries. It is important that when you undergo any form of treatment – whether it is the first response to the injury, an appointment with your doctor or any subsequent therapy which you receive that you keep a complete record. This information is vital and it will help support your claim.
