Making a whiplash compensation claim, for most victims will be the first time they have made a compensation claim of any sort, and there could be many questions they want answered before they proceed, so lets start with some of the basics they might be unsure about. Getting whiplash compensation information is vital.
Who can make a personal injury claim?
If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, if you sustained injuries that needed medical attention and the accident took place no more than three years ago, you may be entitled to claim compensation. A whiplash compensation claim comes under these rules, as it is no different to making any other compensation claim.
How much does it cost to make a whiplash compensation claim?
We cannot speak for other companies that would deal with a whiplash compensation claim, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we use the no win no fee agreement. This is because it is the only way we can be certain that making a claim is accessible to everyone. Because they do not have to pay us any money to start their claim, or if their claim is lost, our claimants do not have to consider their financial situation when they want to claim the compensation they are due.

How much will a whiplash compensation claim pay me?
No one can tell you that in the early stages of your claim. There are many things that have to be accounted for as part of a claim that can affect the final outcome and how much you receive. We can give you an estimate of the injury part of your claim though, very simply by completing the 30-second test on our website.
It will let you know if you qualify to make a claim, and if you do will give you an estimate of how much you could receive.
Will Accident Advice Helpline go to court with me?
Very few of our claimants have to attend court as most of the claims we handle, we are able to settle before they reach this stage. Our solicitors are very experienced in the art of negotiations, and with out compromising the amount you receive will do their best to make a out of court settlement. If this cannot be done though, we are able to represent you in court, which is something claim management companies cannot do, as they are not law firms, but middlemen acting on your behalf.
Why should I use you and not someone else?
The choice is obviously yours, but you will find that our reputation precedes us which is why we receive 25,000 new enquiries everyone and why Esther Rantzen has been our patron since 2003. We are known for providing the highest quality service and for always giving the needs of our claimants priority.
If you are unsure of anything, call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 and speak with one of our friendly advisors. They will answer any other questions you may have about making a claim, and will be happy to help you all they can.
