    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Whiplash claim success


    Sustaining a whiplash injury is something most people associate with a car crash, but there are many other ways it can happen. For whiplash claim success you need to be aware of how compensation works.

    It could be that you:

    • Were thrown from your motorbike by a pothole
    • Tripped up a broken paving slab
    • Fell down some stairs that had no railing
    • Were hit on the head by a falling object

    Any of these things, and many more, could cause a whiplash injury and mean that you want to make a whiplash accidents claim.

    Why victims fail to achieve whiplash claim success

    Less than half the victims entitled to compensation actually make a claim and various reasons are cited for this.

    1)   They think they can’t afford it

    2)   They think it is too much hassle

    3)   They think it will take too long

    4)   They do not think it will be worth their effort

    5)   They think it is wrong

    These are all common misconceptions, which we will try to answer so that you can see why you should make a whiplash accidents claim.

    They think they can’t afford it

    Accident Advice Helpline operate on a no win no fee basis just so this situation does not arise.  No money is needed to start the claim, or if the claim is lost.

    They think it is too much hassle

    We will deal with everything to do with the claims, so the victim has as little hassle and stress as possible. Once Accident Advice Helpline has been contacted and took all the details, the victim will have very little to do except wait for their claim to be concluded.

    They think it will take too long

    No one can say how long a claim will take, but what we can assure you is that we will work as quickly and efficiently as possible.  This results in many of our claimants receiving their compensation in a very short time, some as soon as six weeks.

    They do not think it will be worth their effort

    How much you are awarded depends on many factors, but if a victim completes our 30-second test they can at least get an estimate of how much they might be due.  Although this is only an estimate, it can help the victim decide if they want to continue with a whiplash accidents claim.

    They think it is wrong

    This could not be further from the truth.  If someone causes you to be injured, as well as the pain and suffering you will have, you could have lots of unexpected expenses and losses associated with the accident.  Why should you have to find all this extra money yourself?  Whoever put you in this situation should pay – that is the law in the UK, and victims should exercise that legal right.

    Hopefully any victims reading this will understand how simple the whole process can be for them, and how stress free it can be to get the compensation they deserve after being injured in an accident that was not their fault.
