Whiplash injury? Call an accident solicitor in Beaminster if somebody’s negligence caused your accident
Genuine victims of whiplash injuries can sometimes suffer for several months from the results of what at the time appeared to have been a fairly minor road traffic accident. Although the ligaments in a person’s neck aren’t broken, they are sprained and overstretched, which can take a long time to heal. It can affect movement of the neck, cause pain in the shoulders and arms and often victims suffer from headaches.
If you were the victim of a road traffic accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence and this accident happened in the Beaminster area within the last 3 years, you are entitled to claim compensation for your personal injury.
Finding an accident solicitor in Beaminster who is prepared to deal with your case
Over the past couple of years there has been quite a furore surrounding whiplash injury claims, as far too many people have tried to exploit the no win no fee* legal system to get compensation, when they didn’t have a genuine injury. As a result, some solicitors are rather wary of taking on such cases and the UK Government is trying to ban them from being dealt with by the courts or even allowing whiplash injury claims to be dealt with on a no win no fee* basis. Therefore, it may not be quite so easy finding somebody who will take on your case.
You can call Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 to speak to an advisor and get an honest expert opinion on your chances of winning compensation and how much that might be. There is no obligation to go ahead, but if you do decide that they are the best legal representation for your individual circumstances and case, you could ask for help in finding an accident solicitor in Beaminster or other specialist.
Claiming for a whiplash injury
Your Accident Advice Helpline specialist or other legal representative will probably want to arrange for an independent medical assessment of your neck and whiplash injury. You and your solicitor must prove to the other party that your injuries are genuine and that they were the result of an accident for which they must accept liability.
If they do admit to being liable, your solicitor will send them an offer letter that will state a figure of compensation that you will be prepared to accept. This way you can settle out of court, by far the cheapest and fastest option. Your accident solicitor in Beaminster or other specialist lawyer will handle all the legal paperwork, so there is no form filling for you to do. Most cases are dealt with over the telephone, cutting down on time, costs and as Accident Advice Helpline’s patron Esther Rantzen sees it, the fuss.
Esther Rantzen is one of the UK’s most outspoken consumer champions and as such she is proud to be the figure head of a compensation provider who can deliver a high customer satisfaction rate throughout the claims process, not just at the start or the end.
