Negotiating Compensation For Whiplash

Accident Advice Helpline has helped thousands of people involved in rear-end collisions by negotiating compensation for whiplash for them.

Claims for whiplash are some of the most common, yet this does not minimise the significant impact they can have on sufferers’ lives. Whiplash is a neck injury, usually caused by one car running into the back of another at a standstill – at traffic lights, at a junction, or in stationary motorway traffic.

The car which is responsible for the impact doesn’t even need to be travelling particularly fast, in fact, such injuries are most often caused by low-speed collisions.

Whiplash injuries can have long-term effects, and this can be one of the difficulties faced by solicitors when negotiating compensation for whiplash. Often in fact, a claim is only brought some time after the accident (though it must generally be within three years) as a whiplash injury reappears later on, or becomes aggravated.

Claims for whiplash are dealt with by way of a ‘no win no fee’ agreement. This means there is absolutely no up front payment required. And if the claim failed for some reason, you would equally not be landed with a solicitor’s bill.

It is likely that after such an accident, and with this kind of injury, you will have at least some time off work and will be without transport and/or unable to drive. Therefore compensation can be a vital part of getting back on the road – both literally and on the road to recovery.

Why choose us to help with negotiating compensation for whiplash?

At Accident Advice Helpline, claims for whiplash are first dealt with by our experienced and friendly telephone advisers who you can speak to for free on our free phone number. They will talk you through the circumstances of your accident and the symptoms you have been experiencing, plus any medical treatment or diagnosis you have undergone.

If you decide to go ahead with a claim, after receiving the necessary advice, we have a large national team of legal partners. They are experts in their field and you will be in safe hands as they share our values of integrity and professionalism.

Often, where whiplash occurs, there is more than one victim in the car. There may have been two passengers, or children in the back and so it is possible for Accident Advice Helpline and our associated solicitors, to assist all victims in attaining the compensation they are entitled to in their claims for whiplash.

It may be difficult to get out and about after such an injury and so your claim can usually be managed over the telephone, without the delay and inconvenience of forms and paper. Do bear in mind though, that an additional medical assessment may be needed at some point – but there will be no need for repeat trips to your solicitor’s office – and hopefully  not to court as most claims are settled before the need for that.

So if you, or anyone you know, have been suffering in silence, help for claims for whiplash is only a free phone call away.
