Injury claims lawyer in Lulworth Cove
Lulworth Cove is a cove near the village of West Lulworth, on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset. The cove is one of the world’s finest examples of such a landform, and is a tourist location with approximately 500,000 visitors a year, many in July and August. It is close to the rock arch of Durdle Door and other Jurassic Coast sites. Visitors to the site, just like people all over the country, can sometimes have an accident that damages their neck, then they may want to use an injury claims lawyer in Lulworth Cove.
How much compensation?
A damaged neck is usually a whiplash injury. The amounts of compensation vary greatly depending on the severity of your injury and the length of time involved before your pain and suffering stops, but based on what has been awarded in courts in cases of neck pain you could expect:
- Minor whiplash that takes up to a year for recovery: £750 to £2,850;
- Minor whiplash that takes up to two years for recovery: £2,850 to £5,000;
- Moderate whiplash for which you may have a longer period of recovery, with the possibility of future vulnerability: £5,000 to £8,500; and
- Severe whiplash where there are permanent ongoing symptoms of pain and suffering: £8,500 upwards.
Other problems that can affect whiplash compensation
The main part of the body that is affected by the sudden jolting which causes whiplash is the neck, but other areas can be affected as well:
- Back or spine;
- Shoulders and chest area;
- Arms and legs;
- Hands and feet;
- Hips; and
- Internal organs.
Injuries to these other parts of the body can cause other problems unrelated to the neck. They could increase the amount of compensation you are awarded when you use an injury claims lawyer in Lulworth Cove. So, although we have given examples of whiplash compensation, it is impossible to be exact. Every accident is different and the consequences of accidents differ from person to person, therefore payouts will change.
