Are you asking yourself ‘how much can I claim for a whiplash accident’?
One of the most common injuries which can result from a car accident is that of whiplash. This injury can cause a huge amount of neck pain for victims, sometimes over an extended period of time. If you’re asking yourself ‘how much can I claim for a whiplash accident’ you need some free legal advice from Accident Advice Helpline.
Whiplash is often suffered by someone who was not at fault for an accident. The most common cause of the ailment is when a driver is thrown forward in their seat due to a significant impact from behind. In this situation, when you have suffered whiplash and somebody else was to blame, the law states that you are entitled to seek compensation for the pain, discomfort and financial implications that can result from your injury.
When people become aware of the fact that they may be owed compensation they often jump straight to the question of ‘how much can I claim for a whiplash accident? However, whilst the question is an important one, there are a number of other equally important ones which often slip people’s minds. It is for this reason that this article will not only offer an answer to the question of how much can I claim for whiplash, but will also address the other questions of when might I have a claim, who can help me to claim and how do I contact them.
When Might I Have a Claim?
The law states that when you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame then you are entitled to seek compensation for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you have endured. In most cases there is a period of three years from the incident in question in which you can begin claims proceedings, and the only cases for which this three year rule does not apply are those which regard injuries to minors and those which relate to industrial diseases.
