Whiplash Compensation Average


From drivers to passengers, cyclists to motorcyclists and even pedestrians; road traffic accidents can involve anyone and sadly cannot always be prevented. Whilst good, observant driving can help to ensure you do not cause any accidents yourself, it is difficult to prevent your involvement if someone else’s negligence or carelessness results in a crash.

One of the most common injuries following a car crash is whiplash; a neck injury caused by the sudden forward and backward movement of the head and neck. Whiplash is a painful injury which can cause problems for many weeks or perhaps even longer, and often results in the need for complete rest and the use of a neck brace.

If your accident was caused by another person, happened within the past three years and resulted in medical attention from a professional, then you may be entitled to make a claim. But what is the average amount of whiplash compensation? This is a fair question to ask if you have a whiplash injury and wish to be compensated for the distress, inconvenience and financial burden of your injury.

What is the whiplash compensation average amount?

Whilst there is no set amount for whiplash injuries, you can get a good idea of how much you may be able to claim by reading the testimonials of others in similar situations, and by using online tools which will calculate your entitlement.

At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a 30-second test which is a useful tool to firstly confirm you are entitled to make a claim, and secondly get an idea of how much you may receive. This will be largely based on the whiplash compensation average, which is variable dependent on the severity of your injuries. Alternatively, you can read the testimonials of claimants we have helped to make successful whiplash injury claims.

Your actual compensation amount will be loosely based on the whiplash compensation average, whilst taking into account the specifics relating to your case. These may include:

  • The severity of your whiplash injury
  • Your likely recovery time
  • Any loss of earnings due to an inability to work over the long or short term
  • Medical expenses relating directly to your injury

How should I progress my claim?

It is always best to begin the claims process as soon as possible following your accident, as long as you have received medical attention first. Getting an idea of the whiplash compensation average is a good way to set your expectations at a realistic level, whilst remembering that the amount you take home could differ.
