Car accidents are something that we all do our best to avoid, but even the most skilled drivers amongst us can be caught up in an Islington car accident if we happen to be on the road at the same time as a careless or negligent driver. When this happens, Accident Advice Helpline’s team of personal injury lawyers are on hand to help the innocent recover compensation for the injuries they sustain.
If you have been injured in a car accident in the past 3 years and it was not your fault, we could help you file a compensation claim and recover a large settlement depending on the severity of the injuries you sustained.
One of the most common injuries caused by car accidents is whiplash. This is an injury to the neck that is caused when the head or neck is suddenly and rapidly forced backwards, forwards or sideways.
Although whiplash is usually not that serious, it can be very uncomfortable and it can, in exceptional circumstances, result in a long-term illness, which can lead to anxiety and depression.
How much could I claim for whiplash after an Islington car accident?
The amount of compensation you could recover for a whiplash injury will depend on the amount of pain and suffering you are caused by your injuries, how long you suffer and how much money you lose as a result of your injuries.
In 2013, for example a minor whiplash injury could be worth anything from £850 to £2,900, whereas more severe cases, which lasted longer and had more serious consequences brought in anything from £2,500 to £5,000.
In the most extreme cases, where permanent damage was caused, victims were paid as much as £97,500 in compensation, so it is well worth pursuing a claim if you have suffered a whiplash injury.
