How Much Will I Get for a Whiplash Claim


The law states that when you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation for the physical, emotional and financial effects of your injury or illness. This entitlement applies to a vast array of different ailments, but one of the more common injuries that give rise to compensation claims is whiplash, and it is this that will form the main subject of this article.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a laymen’s term used to describe a variety of neck injuries caused by a jolting or jerking movement that inflicts damage on neck muscles. The common symptoms of whiplash are chronic neck pain, restricted movement of the neck and secondary muscular pain in other areas due to having to hold your neck in unnatural positions.

When Does It Occur?

Whiplash most commonly occurs as a result of a road traffic collision where a driver or passenger is thrown forwards in their seat by impact and then pulled rapidly back by their seatbelt. This movement is most marked in collisions where a vehicle is impacted from the rear, and therefore this kind of accident is not normally the fault of the person who suffers the injury. It is for this reason that there are so many valid claims for whiplash injuries and that so many people rightly ask themselves: how much will I get for a whiplash claim?

How Much Will I Get for a Whiplash Claim?

Whilst many people ask the question “How much will I get for a whiplash claim?”, it is actually quite difficult to give a general answer without analysing the specific conditions pertinent to an individual case. This is true, as when it comes to the question of how much will I get for a whiplash claim the answer will be different for each individual sufferer, due to factors related to the cause, severity and impacts of their injury.
