Average whiplash settlement 2012


Whiplash is a painful and often debilitating injury associated with car accidents. More often than not, the people most affected by whiplash are those who are hit from behind in rear-end collisions. This type of sudden impact causes the head to move rapidly, which damages the ligaments and connective tissues in the neck. Symptoms of whiplash can take hours and sometimes days to develop and the patient can often live with the injury for years to come.

Whiplash could leave you:

– Suffering from frequent headaches
– Unable to work
– Unable to carry heavy items
– Incapable of exercise
– Unable to drive
– In constant pain
– Feeling depressed

If you have suffered from whiplash in the last three years due to an accident that was no fault of your own, Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you get the compensation you deserve.

You might be wondering what the average whiplash settlement was in 2012 to help determine whether you would like to take your case further. We can help you with that too!

Average Whiplash Settlement in 2012 – Why it depends on your injury

As with most injuries, there are lots of different degrees of whiplash. The average whiplash settlement in 2012 very much depended on the severity of the collision and the degree of the injury sustained.

Minor Whiplash claims – between £700 and £3000

A minor injury will generally completely recover within a year and the patient will suffer from lesser symptoms over a short amount of time.

Moderate whiplash claims – between £3000 and £8000

A moderate whiplash injury will be much slower to recover and could cause the patient a degree of pain over months or years. The injury may inhibit what activities the patient can take part in, in the future.

Major whiplash claims – £8000+

A major whiplash injury will leave the patient with permanent pain. Compensation in this instance will very much depend on how severely the patient’s future and quality of life is inhibited.
