Could you be entitled to a money whiplash settlement?
It’s common knowledge and, sadly a fact, that road traffic accidents are on the up. Accidents involving cars commonly cause whiplash. Whiplash is a physical injury affecting the neck – this can cause either permanent or temporary damage to victims. Whiplash occurs when a person is jolted or moved very quickly. This causes the neck to jolt at speed, often causing a lot of pain and upset.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury as a result of a road traffic accident which was somebody else’s fault, then the law states that you are entitled to seek compensation. Any money for a whiplash settlement that you receive will cover the physical, emotional and financial damage that you have experienced since being involved in the road traffic accident.
What is a common money whiplash settlement amount?
With regards to how much compensation you could be entitled to, there is no one answer as to how much you could be able to claim. The minimum value of money for a whiplash settlement that you could get may be £1,000 and the most could be as much as £500,000. We will assess your claim details to establish how much you may be entitled to. You simply need to get in touch with us by phoning an adviser and we can discuss your claim in more detail. You can also get a rough idea as to how much you may be entitled to by using the compensation calculator on our website.
As well as whiplash causing severe pain, many people who suffer injuries from road traffic accidents experience an emotional level of trauma due to dealing with the aftermath of the accident, as well as other factors. The whiplash accident could have caused shock, or if the individual has had to take sick leave, they could be struggling financially. If the accident that caused your whiplash wasn’t your fault and took place within the past three years, you should get in touch with a trained adviser at Accident Advice Helpline.
