But there are several things that you should do prior to claiming to ensure that you get all of the compensation that you are owed.
Your to-do list
- Firstly, you should check that you are eligible to claim. If the accident that caused your whiplash injury was someone else’s fault, and the accident took place within the past three years, you can probably claim, but to be sure, please call our helpline on 0800 689 0500.
- Next, you should write a brief account of your accident, outlining what happened and when, the date, time, weather, and so on. If your whiplash injury was caused by a road accident, you could also include a diagram showing the positions of the vehicles involved. It will also help to take a picture of the damage to your vehicle.
- When you claim, your lawyer will make sure that you are reimbursed any money you have spent on accident-related costs, so if, for example, you had to pay for a child-minder because you were unable to drive your children to school, you can claim that money back. You can also claim for private medical fees, and travel expenses. Whatever your expenses were, it is important that you keep hold of the receipts and bank statements that prove them.
When you are ready to claim, all you need to do is give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and we will be ready to help you.
