    Settlement for whiplash


    Whiplash is a common and painful injury, often sustained in a car accident.

    While there are many ways in which you can suffer whiplash, a collision on the roads is one of the leading causes of this injury. It primarily affects the neck, but whiplash can also lead to pain in the back, shoulders and even arms.

    If you’ve been hurt in a car accident and want to know if you can receive a settlement for whiplash, read to learn more about your rights after an accident, and to see how Accident Advice Helpline can help.

    Can I receive a settlement for whiplash?

    You could be eligible to make a compensation claim and receive a settlement for whiplash if the circumstances surrounding your accident reach the following criteria:

    • You were not to blame for your accident, and can prove the negligence of another party was the cause
    • You were injured within the past three years 
    • Your injuries were severe enough to need medical attention

    If this sounds like you, get in touch right away to see how we can help. Our law firm has assisted countless accident victims with successful whiplash claims over the past fourteen years, and we can help you too.
