If the road or traffic accident that caused the whiplash injury was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. How much compensation you will be entitled to will depend on several different factors, for example how long this type of pain lasted and how it has impacted on you doing your work or carrying out your normal day-to-day life at home with friends and family.
Qualifying claimants are also entitled co make a claim for expenses which they incur as a consequence of their whiplash injury and any losses arising out of the injury. Since personal injury claims with Accident Advice Helpline work on a no win no fee basis, you get to keep the maximum possible amount of compensation and you have peace of mind during the claim procedure.
Typically, expenses and losses are paid by the third party in the case of a successful claim.

- If it takes more than one year but less than two for the minor soft tissue neck injury to heal completely, a claimant may be entitled to between £2,500 and £4,500
Moderate whiplash injury compensation:
- Claimants whose injuries were more severe and whose recovery takes several years with the risk of further complications in the future may expect to see higher compensation, which is generally around £4,250 to £7,750
Severe whiplash injury compensation:
- Claimants with permanent symptoms that result in on-going suffering and pain can expect compensation in line with the severity of their personal injury. Generally speaking, this may be between £7,750 and £13,750 for the severest cases.
