    Tips When Filing a Personal Injury Whiplash Claim

    If you’ve had an accident, there’s a chance you might have whiplash and you might want to make a claim for this, below you are going to find the steps that you want to take when making a claim.

    Get examined for your personal injury whiplash claim

    You want to have a complete examination before you make a claim. This is going to give you essential documentation to prove your case.  If you don’t go to the doctor, it’s going to look suspicious and you may have trouble proving that you really are injured.

    Get supporting materials for your personal injury whiplash claim

    One of the things that you can collect to support your claim is witnesses. You want to make sure that you are getting their names and contact information so that your solicitor and the court are able to get in touch with them when they need to.  It’s also a good idea to get statements from witnesses while they are there, since that is when their memory is going to be the best.

    File your personal injury whiplash claim quickly

    You also want to make sure that you are filing the claim quickly. If you take too long to file your claim, you will have a greater chance of losing your case.  Most of the time you are going to have a certain length of time that you can file the case.  If the deadline passes before you file, you may not be able to file at all.  That means you’re not going to have any money that you will receive.

    Get supplemental documentation for your personal injury whiplash claim

    Keep in mind that you are going to need documents that are supporting what you are saying about being injured.  When you see your doctor, make sure that you tell them that the injury was because of a car accident.  That means that they are going to make sure that they keep all of your information in case you go to court and make a claim.

    Think about getting a solicitor for your personal injury whiplash claim
