The estimates for whiplash compensation when using the solicitors in Farrington Guerney
Whiplash compensation varies greatly because it is dependent on so many different things. The severity of the injury and the effects it has on your life all have to be accounted for, but some typical examples of whiplash compensation are:
- Mild whiplash – £750 – £2850
- Moderate whiplash – £5000 – £8500
- Severe whiplash £8500 upwards.
Certain things have to be taken into account when deciding the amount of compensation you get because victims are different, every accident is different and the solicitors in Farrington Guerney treat each claim as the unique entity it is.
Mild whiplash should heal in just a few weeks, but a severe case can take a very long time to recover from. In extreme cases the victim never fully recovers, and can be left with weaknesses in their neck and back.
The different types of effects
In simple terms, whiplash is a sprained neck. It can be very painful and leave you with a lack of mobility. Apart from the neck pain and stiffness, you may also suffer:
- Blurred vision and dizziness
- Pains in your shoulders, back and chest area
- Pins and needles or numbness in your limbs
All these additional symptoms can increase the amount of compensation you are awarded when using the solicitors in Farrington Guerney.
