Fraudulent whiplash claims add around £90 a year to the typical insurance premium, with cover providers paying out somewhere in the region of £2 billion a year to dodgy drivers who falsely claim they have damaged the soft tissue in their neck. In 2013, the coalition government launched a crackdown on fraudulent whiplash claims. But you shouldn’t let this put you off making a claim if you genuinely have suffered whiplash from a car crash in Ballynahinch.
Personal injury law is there to protect you, so if you’ve been hurt by a negligent third party, you have a right to seek damages, regardless of how good or bad the system is at weeding out fraudulent cases. As long as you are 100% honest and don’t try to exaggerate or mislead while conducting your case, you’ll have nothing to worry about at all.
Honesty is always the best policy when making a claim for whiplash from a car crash in Ballynahinch
Never be tempted to lie when persuing personal injury compensation for whiplash from a car crash in Ballynahinch, or anywhere else here in the UK. If you do, it could be the undoing of you. Say that you claimed that the pain and discomfort in your neck was so bad that you were unable to turn your head when this was not the case. You may find that the insurer of the party you are seeking compensation from will investigate your claim by having an investigator follow you. If you were filmed doing something that involved a lot of head turning, say a ballet routine for instance, then your claim would be in tatters.
A decent 100% no-win, no-fee solicitor would never encourage you to lay things on thick. If you encounter a firm that does, best you take your whiplash injury in Ballynahinch claim elsewhere. A greedy personal injury solicitor that doesn’t mind bending the rules could hamper rather than help your case. This is why it will be important for you to shop around when selecting a company to handle your claim.
