    Thurrock road traffic accidents

    Some Thurrock road traffic accidents happen in car parks, rather than on the public highway. With such a high volume of cars driving in, out and around car parks, it would be a miracle if accidents were NOT  to take place there.

    The incidence of whiplash injuries in car parks

    Any accident that take place in a car park happens at relatively low speeds. But even at low speeds, collisions can still cause significant damage and injury and frequently do. One of the most common causes of injury is whiplash, a type of neck injury that can be sustained at surprisingly low speeds.

    The Whiplash Injury Capital of Europe

    The UK earned itself the title of “the Whiplash Injury Capital of Europe” due to the fact that at one stage, over 1200 whiplash injury incidents were being recorded each and every day. Of course the great majority of the claims that were raised for financial compensation were actually bogus. They were the result of organised gangs who fabricated evidence and even medical reports in an effort to defraud the insurance companies.

    Insurance companies toughen up

    Thanks to several court cases for whiplash injury compensation being overturned in the magistrates courts and the subsequent toughening up of the approach of insurance companies to whiplash injury claims, the incidence rate, although still high, has fallen back dramatically. With talk of a special board being convened specifically to review any apparently extravagant claims, it will become harder than ever to now “put one past” the insurance companies.

    Claiming for whiplash injury compensation as a result of Thurrock road traffic accidents

    Genuine whiplash injuries do however still occur and, if you are one of the unfortunate whiplash injury victims of Thurrock road traffic accidents that have taken place, whether in car parks, or out on the public highway, you may want to consider employing the no win no fee services of specialist injury claim solicitors Accident Advice Helpline. We come highly recommended by the well known people’s consumer champion Esther Rantzen.

    The proofs you will require

    Given the tougher stance that insurance companies are now making, it is recommended that you supply as much proof as possible with any whiplash injury claim that you raise; where possible your proofs should include:

    • Incontrovertible medical evidence from your GP or hospital
    • Photographic evidence of the damage sustained by the vehicles
    • The names and addresses of any witnesses
