Average whiplash settlement amounts vary depending upon the extent of your injury and its consequences, Accident Advice Helpline are here to advise and guide you towards obtaining the settlement you are owed.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash occurs when the head is subjected to a sudden, powerful movement in any direction, this is why it is such a common injury in road traffic accidents. Some of the symptoms to look out for are:
- Neck pain
- Neck stiffness
- Back pain
- Blurred vision
- Pins and needles in arms and hands
These symptoms can last up to six months, and in some cases even longer. If you are suffering from whiplash then you don’t need to be told about the detrimental effect this can have on your life. Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation to which you are entitled.
How much could you be owed?
Whiplash claims can result in compensation ranging from a few hundred pounds to over £15,000 for the most severe injuries. Average whiplash settlement amounts are around £2,500. These amounts are guidelines only and cannot be guaranteed as every claim needs careful consideration to take into account all aspects relating to it.
