    How Much Injury Compensation for Whiplash


    Would you like an idea of how much injury compensation for whiplash is payable?

    One of the most common injuries which results from road traffic collisions is that of whiplash, which whilst being very common is still an injury that produces a great deal of pain and discomfort. While the injury known as whiplash is common, and is often mentioned in the press and online, many people do not really know much about it and that is what this article is aiming to put right.

    What Exactly is Whiplash?

    Whiplash is a non-medical term applied to a multitude of neck injuries which share in common the fact that they are very painful at the outset and remain painful for a longer period of time with certain movements of the neck.

    When Does Whiplash Occur?

    These injuries are caused by sudden jerking or jolting movements of the neck which strain or pull the muscles. This is why the injury is so often a result of car accidents, due to the rapid change of direction of a driver or passenger in response to a collision and then the spring back caused by the person’s seatbelt. This sudden movement forward and then back in your seat is most noticeable if your vehicle was impacted from behind, and in this case the accident and whiplash injury is therefore often somebody else’s fault.

    What if your Whiplash Injury was Somebody Else’s Fault?

    If you suffered from whiplash and somebody else was to blame, then the law states that you are entitled to seek compensation for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you have endured. In the majority of cases you have a period of three years in which to place your claim and after this time has elapsed then you can no longer begin claims proceedings.
