At Accident Advice Helpline, lots of the enquiries we receive are regarding better settlements for whiplash.
With numerous accidents on the UK’s road every day, whiplash remains a common injury. Many people aren’t aware that they could be entitled to make a compensation claim for this injury, and so miss out on what could have been a substantial payout!
Here, we look at questions regarding your rights after an accident, and reveal important information you should know about better settlements for whiplash.
Who can make a claim?
You can make a claim if you were the innocent party in an accident. This means that if you can prove someone else’s negligence was responsible and you were in no way to blame, you could be within your legal rights to make a compensation claim for your injuries. This applies to settlements for whiplash, as well as any other injuries that were caused by someone else.
What happens if my accident happened a while ago?
You have up to three years after an accident to make a claim for whiplash. The pain and discomfort caused by whiplash onsets right away, but there can be lingering pain that flares up years afterwards too. You can make a claim for all of this discomfort and maximise the amount you receive in a settlement, as long as you act within the three-year time period.
How much are better settlements for whiplash usually worth?
The amount each claim is worth will vary, and depends on a number of factors such as the severity of the whiplash and treatment involved. Many of our claimants receive a substantial amount in damages, as we help award over £30 million a year.
You can get a rough idea of what your claim is worth either online or over the phone with absolutely no obligation to commit. Online, you can fill in a form and have a claims adviser assess your case and call you back with a quote, or you can fill in our thirty-second claims calculator for a fast estimate. You can also call our freephone helpline and chat with a claims professional directly about settlements for whiplash injuries.
How much do I have to pay to hire an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor?
All of our solicitors work on a No Win, No Fee agreement, which means you only have to pay if your case is successful. There’s no money required upfront, helping you put your money towards recovering from your injury, not seeking compensation for it.
Beware of firms offering you instant settlements. They will not be the maximum you are legally entitled to. You need the experts at AAH to get you better settlements for whiplash.
