If you have suffered a whiplash car injury within the last three years and it was not your fault and you needed medical attention, then contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline so they can help you to make an injury compensation claim against the person responsible.
In days gone by, injuries such as a whiplash car injury would have meant much more changes in the victims lives. There was none of the medical help there is today, no sick pay to help you manage when you were off work, and no compensation claims for injuries sustained through the fault of someone else.
Suffering a whiplash car injury today
If you suffer a whiplash car injury today, UK law says that if someone else cause the accident in which you sustained out, they should pay you compensation. Very few people would offer this freely, and if they do you should be wary – it is probably much less than you would be awarded through a personal injury claim.
The law is quite specific about the criteria you need to fit to be able to make a claim after a whiplash car injury;
- Someone else must have been to blame for the accident
- You must have sustained inures that needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened with the last three years
Recouping your expenses
As well as claiming for the pain and suffering you have had to endure, any costs and losses that have arisen because of the accident can be recouped as part of the claim, providing you can prove they are genuine payments. Receipts or credit card statements can be a good way to do this.
Making a whiplash car injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline
Making a personal injury claim for any type of accident and injuries is a legal process that needs care and attention to make sure it reaches its full potential. The evidence from the victim is just the first stage, then medial reports will be needed, and maybe even an independent medical assessment.
If any official bodies were involved, such as the police or the Health and Safety Executive, they have to compile a report and a copy of that can be vital as they often point the finger of blame.
The next stage is to decide which law firm you would like to handle your claim, and you could do no better than contact Accident Advice Helpline, who have over 14 years of making successful personal injury claims for blameless victims.
We make sure that your claim is as stress free as possible, starting with stopping any worry about funding the claim. As we work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, no money is needed to start you claim, or if your claim is lost.
