Whiplash accident claim guidance


A whiplash accident claim is just the same as any other personal injury claim. They come within the same rules and regulations and the award is calculated in the same way. It’s wise to get some whiplash accident claim guidance from the legal experts at AAH.

making a claim requires certain steps to be followed, whether it is a whiplash accident claim, a work-related claim or any other type of claim, and the law decides the criteria, which are that you must have been injured in an accident that was not your fault some time in the last three years, and your injuries must have needed medical attention.


Step 1 – gathering the evidence for your whiplash accident claim

You need as much evidence as possible to prove your claim, including witnesses’ details, police reports, photos (perhaps taken on your mobile) and anything else you think may be relevant to your claim. If the other party admits liability, you may need nothing more than their details so we know against whom to make the claim, but if they decide to fight the claim then the more you have to strengthen your case, the better.


Step 2 – the medical evidence for your whiplash accident claim

Reports will be needed from the medical practitioner who diagnosed and treated your injury, together with their opinion of your future health prospects with regard to the injury. Sometimes it is required that you attend an independent medical assessment, but this can only help speed up your personal injury claim.


Step 3 – finding the best law firm to handle your whiplash accident claim
