Do you need to know how much can you get for a whiplash claim?
The short answer to the question how much can you get for whiplash injury? is somewhere between £750 and £16,000. However the UK government is concerned about bogus claims for whiplash injuries, and since 1st April 2013 it is more difficult to make a fraudulent whiplash claim. More whiplash claims are made in the UK than in any other European country and although the number of road accidents has been falling, there is a rise in the number of whiplash injury claims. The Association of British Insurers has stated that whiplash claims have cost the industry £2 billion a year in compensation and legal fees. The costs have been passed on to drivers who now pay higher insurance premiums than they did before. It would seem from the ABI’s figures that there are 2.7 claims for whiplash damages made for every road accident which is reported.
