Whiplash claim attorneys are used every day throughout the UK, namely because whiplash injury accidents happen every day – they are part of the injury compensation claims business.
As long as the accident that you have been involved in happened within the last 3 years, then you may be entitled to use the whiplash claim attorneys at Accident Advice Helpline.
The compensation that the whiplash claim attorneys obtain for you is made up of two main parts, general compensation and special compensation.
Whiplash claim attorneys explain general compensation
General compensation is the amount awarded for your actual injuries. The severity of the injury, the recovery time scale, the prognosis for your future health and how the injuries have affected you life all have to be accounted for when making a general compensation claim.
Whiplash claim attorneys explain special compensation
Special compensation is to cover any costs and losses that you have had to bear because of the accident. This could include:
- Loss of earnings
- Travel costs
- Medical expenses
- Car costs
- Child care
- Home help
Any cost or loss that arises because of the accident can be reclaimed, but you must make sure you get receipts for any expenses, and keep your wage slips as proof of loss of income. If you do not have your wage slips, your employer will be asked to confirm the reduction in income, unless you are self employed, your accountant will be requested to confirm you have lost money in this instance.
