Average settlement auto accidents whiplash


Average settlement auto accidents whiplash

Whiplash is the most common injury following road accidents, making up 78% of all auto accident related claims in the UK. Unfortunately, accidents resulting in whiplash can affect many motorists simultaneously and because of this, it can be difficult to assess each case and determine individual compensation. As with any injury, the process of reaching a settlement will depend on various factors such as the severity of injury and the specific circumstances of the accident.

The majority of whiplash sufferers typically sustain their injuries as the result of a one-on-one collision with another driver, usually caused by rear ending or by a car reversing into the front of another vehicle. In the most severe circumstances surrounding whiplash, such as a major car accident, two or more parties may be involved and multiple injuries may have to be accounted for.

These types of whiplash cases can often be more complex and take longer to settle, entailing months or even a couple of years of assessment. Claims of this nature can draw up to £10,000 in compensation, but these types of cases are in the minority. So what is the average settlement for auto accidents whiplash victims can expect to receive?

No two whiplash claims are the same, but on the basis of those sustained in common auto accidents, the average claim can be worth between £2,000 and £2,500. This sum is decided on the basis of the claimant’s medical information and of previous injuries of the same nature; both of which are carefully assessed by a personal injury lawyer. Often, the best chance a claimant has of making a successful whiplash claim is enlisting the aid of an injury lawyer with expertise in whiplash injury. Whiplash specialists will often be able to define claim amounts without the need to go to court.
