    Whiplash claim – how much?


    Whiplash is a common, painful injury that often arises as a result of a car accident.

    The force of impact causes the neck to hyperextend, causing damage to the ligaments, tendons and muscles underneath. This injury can make life incredibly difficult, as it limits mobility considerably, making it hard to tend to everyday tasks as well as work.

    If you’ve been hurt in a car accident and are wondering about a whiplash claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline. For the past fourteen years, our hard work has helped people suffering from this painful injury to hold the right people responsible.

    After all, if you weren’t at fault for your accident, you shouldn’t be left to pay for it. With over 190 solicitors around the country available to help, it’s never been easier to get connected to a personal injury lawyer to handle your case.

When you’re contemplating a whiplash claim, how much the negligent party will be responsible to pay will ultimately depend on the severity of the injury.
