The RTA Injury Solicitors Hampton Residents Prefer to use
The injury solicitors Hampton residents choose to use is often AAH, and we are sometimes asked to process personal injury claims that have resulted from road traffic accidents, whereby sometimes the driver responsible for the accident/injury is either uninsured or has not been traced. In these circumstances, we liaise with the Motor Insurance Bureau, which was founded in 1946, and is the mechanism through which all motoring personal injury claims are paid.
The Injury Solicitors Hampton Residents use handle Whiplash Claims
One of the most common injuries that results from a road traffic accident, and one which the accident solicitors Hampton residents often process claims for, is whiplash. This often occurs when a stationary vehicle is hit in the rear by another moving vehicle. The resultant impact forces an involuntary sharp backwards and forwards motion of the head – a motion which air bag protection cannot prevent. The resulting whiplash injury can cause various degrees of damage, sometimes resulting in the necessity for many weeks worth of physiotherapy to correct.
1,200 Whiplash Claims per Day
The actual number of RTAs is immense, but it is almost mind-boggling to appreciate that there are over 1,200 claims per day, made expressly for whiplash injury, six times more than the number of injury claims in the workplace. This figure is the highest in Europe. Last year whiplash cost the NHS £8 million in treatments, and the car insurance industry paid out over £2 billion worth of compensation.
Because of such a high claim incidence rate, many insurance companies believe that a large majority of claims are fraudulent, therefore it is necessary to be able to supply medical proof of the injury sustained. It is also necessary to ensure that any claims are launched within three years of the date of the accident/injury.
Getting an Estimate for your Injury
If you have suffered a whiplash injury, and you’d like to know how much compensation you may be due, the best way to find out is by using the HOW MUCH calculator that can be found on our website. It takes only 30 seconds.
