Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs) are one of the most common types of accident that result in personal injuries. Sometimes the injuries can be quite debilitating, resulting in paralysis or loss of limbs, and sometimes they can be less significant, although still every unfortunate, such as whiplash injuries. Read on for information about making a whiplash claim in St Andrews.
Making a whiplash claim in St Andrews
Solicitors in St Andrew, and all over the UK, are often involved with claims for whiplash as the result of an RTA. At one stage the frequency of claims become almost epidemic. Many claims were bogus, fixed by criminal gangs in the so called “crash for cash” scenario. Once this became recognised, insurance companies began to significantly tighten their vetting procedures. For genuine claimants it brings home the importance of using a top injury claim lawyer, like Accident Advice Helpline, to ensure their claims meet the necessary criteria.
The most important thing with whiplash injury claims is to marshal as much proof as possible. You always need proof of the fact that an injury (whatever its nature) required medical attention. But with whiplash, collecting any witness contact details can help, as can taking any photos at the scene of the accident showing any damage sustained by the vehicles involved. You should also summon the police to the accident scene, and ask them for a note of the incident reference they assign to the accident.
Accident Advice Helpline and the 30-second test
Whiplash injury can command significant sums of compensation depending on the severity of the injury, how long it lasted, and whether it involved any loss of earnings or incurred any costs. You can obtain an estimate of how much compensation you might be awarded by taking the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. All you have to do is to track down the HOW MUCH compensation calculator, which appears on most of this website’s pages, and follow the on-screen instructions.
