Chronic whiplash compensation


What is chronic whiplash?

Every year thousands of people suffer from whiplash as a result of another driver’s carelessness or negligence. When a vehicle is hit by another vehicle, even if it’s not at high speed, the driver or passenger’s head may be forced suddenly and violently forwards, backwards or sideways, causing a great deal of pain and potentially long-lasting problems.

Common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • neck pain and stiffness
  • tender neck muscles
  • headaches
  • reduced or painful neck movement

Some less common symptoms are:

  • lower back pain
  • blurred vision
  • vertigo
  • muscle spasms

For many people the pain caused by whiplash lasts only a couple of weeks or months. However, for others the pain of whiplash still affects them for many months or even years after their road traffic accident. If after six months victims of whiplash still have symptoms, the condition is considered chronic and you may be able to make a chronic whiplash compensation claim.

Am I entitled to chronic whiplash compensation?

If you have been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault and the effects of your whiplash are still present after six months you may be entitled to claim chronic whiplash compensation. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the symptoms you suffer from and how long the symptoms are expected to last.

However, if you have already received compensation for whiplash you will not be able to claim again. This is why it’s important you receive expert legal advice before accepting any settlement from insurance companies, otherwise you could potentially miss out on the compensation you deserve.
