How to claim compensation for whiplash – Injury lawyers in West Tanfield

In any road accident you should be able to claim compensation for your injuries if the accident was caused by someone else. However, it is important to act fast when it comes to a compensation claim, and make sure you handle the incident carefully so that you have a better chance of making a successful claim.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries you can suffer from after a road accident, and is not life threatening but can be uncomfortable and severely affect your day to day life for some time. Here are some tips on making a compensation claim for whiplash injuries.

  • Call an ambulance. At the scene of the accident you should call both the police and an ambulance to take you to hospital. This immediately makes your accident official, and there will be a thorough record of the incident and the scene.
  • Keep all medical notes. When you go to the hospital, and for follow up appointments with your doctor, you should keep any medical assessments and notes. This will all be put together with any other proof you have to prove the extent of your injuries, and what caused this injury. With whiplash it is fairly evident that it was caused by a road accident, and your notes will reflect this.
  • Write down the details of the incident. Even if you already have both a police report and a medical assessment, it is worthwhile backing this up with your own account of the accident, including what you were doing and how the accident occurred from your perspective. Don’t leave anything out, even something which you feel makes you look bad, as it will all fill in any gaps in the other official reports.
  • List any other details such as personal details, the make and model of the other car, insurance details and so on. This will help your injury lawyers West Tanfield to process your claim more efficiently.
