Find out if your claim is valid

Usually claims can be dealt with over the phone, although you may be asked to have a second medical examination. This is especially so if you sustained a whiplash injury in a car accident. The British government have passed laws to crack down on people who make bogus claims for whiplash. If you have a genuine whiplash claim to make, however, you can still do so.
How long do I have to make a claim?
Personal injury compensation claims in Northamptonshire may have to be made within months of the accident. The normal period of time in which you have to file a claim though, is three years from the date of your accident. You should be aware that it is difficult to make a claim after the time is up for you to claim for injuries arising from your particular accident. If you are late filing a claim, you have to prove that there were extraordinary circumstances which prevented you doing so within the set time period.
You should really begin the claims’ process as soon as you can. Sometimes claims have to be heard in court, and these can take years to settle. However, most claims can be settled out of court and take approximately six months for a settlement to be reached.
