If so, you could be eligible to claim compensation – and there are a few things that might be useful to know before you embark on the claims process.
When did the accident happen? Get help with a road traffic accident in St. Helier
Obtaining help with a road traffic accident in St. Helier and beginning your claim can be daunting. However, act promptly as there is a three-year cut off.
That’s the deadline, and it is only extended in cases where the claimant was a minor at the time of the accident, so make sure you don’t leave it too long before you call us at Accident Advice Helpline!
Who caused your road traffic accident?
We deal with claims for compensation from the victims of accidents which weren’t their fault. If your whiplash injury occurred because someone else caused it, then you are probably eligible to claim compensation (although you are not guaranteed to win your case).
Have you sought medical treatment?
Help with a road traffic accident in St. Helier starts with a prompt diagnosis by a doctor, so make sure that you seek medical advice as soon as possible. This is good practice anyway, because the sooner you get it diagnosed, the sooner you can begin your recovery.
If you decide to proceed with a claim for your injury, you will need to attend an additional medical assessment anyway, but you will need medical records of the injury.
Have you suffered financial hardship?
In fact, have you been out of pocket at all, whether it’s for a few taxi journeys or several weeks of home help fees? Obtaining help with a road traffic accident in St. Helier can be expensive and fees for care and nursing can add up.
The payout you will receive, if your case is successfully settled, will be made up of an element for the injury itself plus an element for the reimbursement of expenses – so make sure you keep your receipts. Why not put them in a file, together with the records of your medical treatment?
