Whiplash occurs when the neck muscles are hyper-extended, normally during a road traffic collision.
The muscles are damaged as a result, as are the nerves and tissue in the neck, resulting in a painful, long-lasting injury. If you’ve suffered this injury, you could be entitled to receive a whiplash claim payout if the circumstances surrounding your accident meet the following criteria:
- You were injured within the past three years
- You were not in any way at fault, and can prove your injury was brought about by someone else’s negligence
If this sounds like you, contact Accident Advice Helpline right away. We are one of the UK’s leading personal injury law firms, offering affordable advice, support and legal representation to those that need it most. If you’ve suffered whiplash in an accident caused by somebody else, we’re here to help put things right.
Calculate your whiplash claim payout
Irrespective of whether you’ve had a minor or serious case, if you’ve suffered whiplash, you deserve the full amount in compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re dedicated to ensuring every victim receives exactly that, and our legal team will fight to give you the best possible chances of a lucrative settlement. If you’re living with whiplash, it can be hard to get around the house, let alone come into legal offices for a lengthy meeting and claims assessment. That’s why we don’t require you to do so; instead, we offer a couple of simple ways in which you can find out just how much you could be owed:
- Online – if you want to get a rough idea of the compensation you could receive quickly, use our simple claims calculator. This helpful tool will show you a rough estimate of damages in just thirty seconds or less. You also have the option of filling in a slightly longer form online and submitting it to our team for review.
- Over the phone – to discuss your case in confidence with a compassionate and experienced claims expert, ring our freephone number and speak to an adviser about your case.
There’s no obligation to move forward with your quote once you’ve received it, but if you wish to make a claim, we’ll connect you to one of 190 solicitors working around the country that can help. There’s no money required up front to start a claim either, as all of our personal injury lawyers work on a No Win, No Fee basis. With nothing to pay outright, you can put your money towards more important things such as treatment and pain management.
Whiplash is a common injury, but that doesn’t mean you should just have to accept living with it. To find out more about how Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a whiplash claim payout, call us today on 0800 180 4123.
