    Accidents resulting in neck injury claims

    Also known as whiplash, accidents resulting in neck injury claims are the most common road traffic accidents, although they can also occur whilst bungee jumping or with any other kind of head banging.

    Who can make a neck injury claim?

    Anyone who has been injured in an accident out of somebody else’s fault is entitled to make a claim and ask for compensation. Accidents resulting in neck injury claims are often small bumps in city traffic. Whiplash injuries can be hard to prove, as there might not be any visible signs of injury. However, doctors have been asked to give their opinion in lawsuits against the insurance companies and they are saying again and again that neck injuries occur even when the collision between vehicles is at a low speed.

    During accidents resulting in neck injury claims, the neck is over-extended once or even two times. The damage can only be assessed properly one day after the accident and it can often result in chronic pain and the limitation of head movements.

    If you’ve been hurt in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, be sure to file your claim sooner than three years after the injury. That is the legal window you’re supposed to take action about claiming compensation.

    How much time for a whiplash claim to be solved?

    It is hard to say exactly how long it will take for a personal injury claim to be processed. Depending on the details of your case, however, a timeframe can be estimated. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993 and ask one of our advisors, for free. They will be able to assess your case and tell you more or less what to expect in terms of time and money. The conversation is for free and it doesn’t oblige you to go on with the claim.

    Is it worth to go through the trouble?

    Even if your neck injury has been mild, you shouldn’t let it slide. You were fine and then you got hurt because someone else wasn’t paying attention. Even if you’re better after two weeks, you still deserve to be compensated.

    You don’t have anything to lose. Personal injury law firms, like Accident Advice Helpline, for example, work on a no win no fee basis, so you don’t have any costs in case your claim is unsuccessful. Your specialist solicitor will deal with your claim over the telephone but may arrange for an additional medical assessment to support your case with independent evidence.
