How serious do you think your injuries would have to be to make a claim for injury compensation? Some accidents cause the vehicles involved to be write-offs, especially if higher speeds were involved. However, some individuals have made a whiplash claim with no damage to car, and have succeeded in doing so.
You may think the condition of your car is dependent on making a successful claim. However, this is not the case. An injury claim is just that – a claim made relating to one or more injuries, whiplash included, you suffered in an accident. This is where the crux of the claim will lie, and in proving the other party in the accident was the one that caused it.
Proving your claim
Regardless of what your car looks like after the accident, it is your injuries that matter most in the context of claiming compensation. See your GP if you have symptoms of whiplash, because a proper diagnosis will be noted on your medical records. These can form part of your claim and can make it easier to reach a successful conclusion.
Additionally, if you attended an A&E department following the collision and were diagnosed there, make sure you get the address of the department as this will be useful to include on your claim form when you are asked for medical details. Don’t worry about your car or what it looks like, or whether it has any visible damage. The circumstances of the accident and your subsequent injuries are the most important things to consider.
