    Starting a compensation claim for injuries

    First of all you need to be sure that you have a valid claim to make. Contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and find out. Our trained advisers will be able to tell you if you do have grounds on which to base a claim. If you do you can begin the claims’ process.

    Usually claims can be processed over the phone. However, you may be required to undergo a second medical examination, especially of you are claiming for a whiplash injury. The British government have clamped down on people who file bogus claims for whiplash. However, if yours is a genuine case, you can still claim compensation for your injury.

    Whiplash injury and compensation

    If you have a whiplash injury which is expected to entirely heal within a few months or a year, you can receive between £1,705 and £3,520. If your injury is expected to get better within 2 years, then you might receive between £3,520 and £6,380. If you are expected to take longer to fully recover, then you could expect to receive more in compensation.

    The amounts above are only for your injury and the pain, distress and suffering it caused you. You receive more in compensation for loss of amenity, for example, if you can no longer do a hobby or sport that you used to do before your accident.
