Making a claim with an experienced solicitor in Inveruglas
If you are suffering from whiplash it is important that you get in touch with a fully qualified and experienced solicitor in Inveruglas to help you make your case. Some people assume that whiplash is not a terribly serious injury and therefore often do not take the necessary steps when it comes to seeking both medical or legal advice and treatment. However, if not dealt with appropriately, whiplash can be both exceptionally painful and can lead to more serious complications.
Your solicitor will encourage you to seek expert medical attention to ensure that you are doing all you can to speed up your recovery, and they will also ensure that you keep the necessary records and gather all the appropriate evidence to maximise your claim.
As well as keeping records of the expenses you may have incurred as a result of your accident your solicitor will suggest that you keep a pain diary, detailing all symptoms associated with your injury and accident. As time goes by it is very easy to forget how much pain you were in at any given point, or how long that pain remained. If you keep a detailed record this will help your solicitor in Inveruglas finalise the details of your claim, and will also assist when it comes to seeing the medical expert who will assess your case further.
Your solicitor will also arrange for any other damages to be awarded, such as loss of income and earnings caused due to an inability to work.
This may have involved a temporary leave of absence caused by the initial accident as well as time off to attend medical or legal appointments.
How much compensation?
The amount of compensation you are likely to receive will depend on a large number of factors. Firstly, the amount you can be awarded will be impacted negatively if you are partly responsible for the accident.
If your injuries are minor and do not have long reaching implications for your future health or ability to work and earn an income then you will receive a standard amount of compensation.
The more serious the injuries and the impact the more compensation your experienced solicitor in Inveruglas will win on your behalf.
