Common whiplash claim questions
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you could be wondering about your rights when it comes to making a compensation claim.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have over fourteen years of experience helping people make claims for this painful neck injury, with many having a successful outcome. If you’re confused about where you stand or have whiplash claim questions pertaining to the process, read on to learn more about how we can be of assistance.
What can I claim for?
You can make a claim for a whiplash injury if you sustained it in an accident that was not your fault. This means that if you can prove someone else was responsible for your accident, you could stand to receive the full amount possible in damages to cover not only the injury itself, but also incidentals that may have arisen as a result, such as lost income and medical expenses.
What’s my expected whiplash claim amount?
Whiplash has varying degrees of severity, and the amount you can receive will depend on a number of factors. To get a rough idea of what you could be entitled to, take thirty seconds, and fill in our online claims calculator. This tool is simple to use, and will show you almost instantly how much you could be able to receive with our help. You can always call our offices too, and discuss your case with a claims representative in confidence
What does no win, no fee mean?
No win, no fee denotes a conditional fee agreement by which you don’t have to pay any money upfront to initiate a claim with Accident Advice Helpline. We don’t believe that anyone should have to forgo his or her right to make a claim because they can’t afford a lawyer, so we make sure that expert, reliable legal representation is within everyone’s reach.
Is Accident Advice Helpline a claims management company?
We are a full service law firm, meaning we are not a claims management company, and we never outsource any of our work to other legal professionals. We handle everything ourselves, and are proud to do so with professionalism and courtesy. We know how frightening it can be to consider taking legal action after having been involved in an accident, so we take a compassionate approach to each claim to make you feel 100% comfortable throughout the process.
How long does it take to receive the full whiplash claim amount?
The amount of time it takes to settle a claim will vary according to a number of things, such as whether or not we were able to reach a settlement out of court. Many of our claimants have only had to wait a few weeks to receive their money!
We’re dedicated to ensuring you get the maximum whiplash claim amount possible. To learn more about how we can help and to get your no win, no fee claim started, contact Accident Advice Helpline today on 0800 689 0500.
