What to do after your accident
- You can only claim compensation if you have had your whiplash injury seen by a medical professional, such as your GP, so make an appointment. Whiplash is diagnosed simply by you describing your symptoms, scans are ordered only when a fracture is suspected.
- Give us a call to confirm that you are eligible to claim. This is a free service, and calling does not put you under any obligation to continue your claim if you decide otherwise.
- Write a brief account of your accident so you have all of the details to hand when you speak to your lawyer. This way, you can be confident that you haven’t missed out an important detail, and so get all of the compensation that you are owed.
- Your lawyer will see that you are reimbursed for any accident related costs, so make sure you keep hold of any receipts. In the case of a whiplash injury costs may include travel expenses if you were unable to drive. Or vehicle hire if your car was off the road.
