We can help guide you through what to expect and if you have been injured, what you can do to receive proper compensation.
Possible injuries from a car collision in Medway
In some cases you know you have been injured, but in others where you might receive an injury like whiplash, the full results of your injury might take a few days to become evident. If you are not sure whether or not you have an injury that qualifies for a personal injury claim you can call us and take the 30-second test. This test measures quickly if you will receive compensation for your injuries and is a useful guideline you can use to determine how much you will likely get. Of course, it is not a guarantee but does give you an idea of whether or not it is useful to pursue a case.
Honesty is the best policy
You will get the best results if you complete the 30-second test seriously and tell the truth. You might be tempted to exaggerate your pain, but in most personal liability cases you will be required to submit to an independent medical examination. Therefore, if you want to avoid wasting your time and that of your solicitor, be truthful about your medical injuries.
One of the most common injuries that occurs in car collision in Medway is whiplash. Whiplash often is not apparent right away and that is why you should be vigilant in paying attention after an accident. Just because you think that you have walked away from an injury does not mean that a problem will not come up soon. Whiplash is common when you are rear ended because it results from the head suddenly being jerked back and forth. When it occurs, tendons and ligaments get ripped and can take months in some cases to heal.
