    Average Whiplash Claim


    Road traffic accidents can happen on any of Britain’s roads. From winding lanes to busy motorways, there are risks of accidents for all road users. You can take measures to help prevent some accidents from happening, for example:

    • Ensuring your car is roadworthy
    • Observing all speed limits and signs
    • Avoiding driving when you are tired, and stopping for frequent breaks on long journeys

    However, even if you are very careful, sometimes accidents cannot be avoided if they are caused by another driver.

    If you have been in an accident caused by someone else, then you may have incurred a whiplash injury. This is a painful neck injury affecting the muscles in your neck and shoulders, which may cause long term problems if left undiagnosed and untreated. If you are suffering from a whiplash injury, then it is useful to know what the average whiplash claim is.

    What is an average whiplash claim amount?

    To find out the average whiplash claim amount, it is worth using a calculator such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. This will tell you how much compensation you may be able to receive, as long as you meet the personal injury claims criteria.

    Another way of gauging the average whiplash claim amount is by reading case studies and client testimonials. On Accident Advice Helpline’s website, you will see we have a vast range of experience in dealing with whiplash injury claims – ensuring we can offer you the expertise you need to make a claim, on a no win no fee basis.

    How do I make a whiplash claim?

    If you have been involved in a car accident, it is a good idea to collect information at the scene of the accident. This could include:

    • Vehicle registration, make, model and colour
    • The name and contact information of the driver that caused the accident
    • The other driver’s insurance details
    • Contact details of any witnesses
    • Photographs taken on your phone showing the accident scene

    If you are too injured to gather this information, you should not worry – your health is your number one priority. There are other pieces of information you can collate after the accident, perhaps including:

    • Your medical report
    • Details of loss of earnings
    • Receipts for expenses due to your injury

    No matter what, Accident Advice Helpline will work hard to help you make a personal injury claim, as long as you fulfil the eligibility criteria. To make your claim today, you can either call our 24 hour a day, 7 day a week advice line, fill out our short online form or use our 30 second test, and we will get back to you.
