What level of compensation for whiplash?


Though Britain’s roads are becoming safer all the time, unfortunately accidents still happen every day, leaving hundreds of people with injuries ranging from bruises and broken bones to loss of mobility and brain injuries.

However, one of the most common types of incidents that leads to personal injury claims is whiplash, a serious and painful injury caused by a severe and sudden jerk to the head and neck.

What level of compensation for whiplash can you expect to receive?

If you’ve recently been the driver or passenger in a car involved in an accident and have suffered from whiplash as a result, you may well want to know what level of compensation for whiplash you can expect to receive if your personal injury claim were to be successful.

As every personal injury claim is different, and many can be very complex, there’s no way to know exactly how much you could expect to receive.

However, as the Accident Advice Helpline has a team of highly trained and dedicated staff just waiting to take your case, we’ll do our best to make sure we get you the best deal possible.

How is the level of compensation calculated?

When deciding what level of compensation for whiplash a claimant should receive, a number of factors are taken into account including the severity of the injury, the time it will take to recover and whether there are any long lasting medical consequences of the accident.

So if you need ongoing care or have had to take time off of work to recover, this should be reflected in the amount you’re awarded.
