The average payout for whiplash injuries and why you should claim
In spite of efforts to make our roads safer and to improve the standard of driving, road accidents will still happen. Road accidents can be a traumatic experience but it is much worse when you receive an injury as a result. A whiplash injury, which is a term for a range of neck injuries, is one of the most common road accident injuries.
If you received a whiplash injury in a road accident, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. It is easy to make a compensation claim and the average payout for whiplash injuries is £800 to £2,500 (for minor injuries). The average payout for whiplash injuries that are more serious (injuries that take between one and two years to heal) is between £2,500 and £5,000.
