Whiplash claim statistics will not win you compensation
Whiplash claim statistics can show that the most common cause of whiplash is from a road accident. However, this is not always the case. Whiplash is caused by your head being violently jolted forward and then swung back. This causes damage to the neck muscles and ligaments.
Whiplash can be caused in a manner of ways
- If you were walking along the road at night and an attacker came behind you and roughly shook your head and neck. (That would be a criminal incident and the time framework for putting in a claim is generally 2 years. However, as each case is unique you should get individual advice on this.)
- Fairground rides can be lethal for swinging the head back and forwards. Even bumper cars can give violent jolts.
- A bad fall, particularly when you try to save yourself can cause your head and neck to suffer a violent jolt.
- Sports such as horse riding and contact games like Rugby regularly cause violent jolts on the head and neck area.
Therefore the problem with reading whiplash claim statistics is that each case is individual but does not get treated as such. This is why, you should telephone Accident Advice Helpline and instead of being treated like a statistic get treated like the individual that you are. Accident Advice Helpline is a compensation provider for personal injury compensation.
A 30 second test
First of all, a trained adviser will guide you through a 30 second test which will establish whether a personal injury solicitor is likely to represent you. After that, an online calculator will estimate how much your claim could be worth if a personal injury solicitor takes your case on and wins. This would be on a no win, no fee* basis. All legal partners of the Accident Advice Helpline operate on these terms.
It does not matter how much you read about whiplash claim statistics, your compensation depends on your specific details and this can be achieved by picking up that telephone and calling Accident Advice Helpline. Most claims can be processed by telephone and most claimants do not need to attend court.
