    Car Accident Claims in Broxburn

    Many of the car accident claims in Broxburn that we handle here at Accident Advice Helpline are for whiplash injury. This type of injury is one which can be sustained in relatively minor RTAs. The only thing that you should be aware of however if you’re considering launching a whiplash injury claim, is that you will have to be very precise with the proofs and backup information you supply with your claim. This state of affairs brought about by the many fraudulent whiplash injury claims that are raised in what is being called the “cash for crash” fiasco.

    Organised crime rings have fed the cash for crash phenomenon

    The circumstances that have led to the “cash for crash” phenomenon and to the UK being christened the “Whiplash Injury Capital of Europe” are because of criminal rings. These organised crime rings put criminals in cars. They then carry out bogus emergency stop manoeuvres, (there is no emergency, of course), forcing the driver following them to crash into the rear of the cars their driving. They usually have arrangements with somebody they can turn to for forged medical certificates, to accompany their claims.

    The judicial system and insurance companies clamp down

    The judiciary has become aware of the exceedingly high incidence rate of whiplash injury claims and has in recent months turned down several high profile applications that proved to be either highly exaggerated or completely fraudulent. Insurance companies are also being stricter when examining the surroundings of claims and the proofs that are being supplied with them. It does mean that genuine whiplash injury sufferers need to be precise about the proofs they supply in order to give their claims the best chance of success.

    A good idea to supply medical proof

    It has always been necessary to supply medical proof of any injury you are applying for compensation against, so nothing has changed there. It has also always been advised that you should gather the names and addresses of any witnesses to the incident. As well as these two measures it is now also a good idea to photograph the damage to the vehicles involved in the incident.
