You just need to take the 30 second test which can be found on each page of our website, and the figure will be provided straight away. But before discussing this further, what exactly is whiplash and how might it affect you after your accident?
Claiming personal injury compensation for whiplash
Whiplash occurs when the head is thrown forward and then back with force. The result is that an enormous pressure is placed on the muscles and ligaments of the neck and shoulders, and severe pain is often experienced in these circumstances.
Although often associated solely with neck pain, the shoulder area is often affected by whiplash and can cause ongoing problems with upper body movement. If your ability to work is affected, your claim for personal injury may be geared towards supplementing or replacing your income for a period of time.
How much do you get for a chronic whiplash claim with ‘no win, no fee’?
Using ‘no win, no fee’ allows your claim to begin without having to pay any fees in advance, and should you lose your case there will be no legal fees to pay your solicitor. Of course, we endeavour to ensure that your case is not only successful, but that we negotiate on your behalf for the best award possible.
We can estimate this amount if you call our helpline. Professional advisers will take a few details about your accident and provide the figure straight away. This amount can also be obtained via our website, using the online calculator for compensation.
