If you’re going to raise a claim for whiplash from a car crash in East Northamptonshire, we at Accident Advice Helpline, recommend you do so at the earliest opportunity.
Due to the vast number of bogus whiplash injury claims that the insurance industry has been dealing with over the past 2 or 3 years, they have begun to get a lot more pernickety about examining the circumstances of all new claims.
It simply means that you need to be a little more exacting in terms of the type of proof you provide to substantiate your claim.
Important proofs to substantiate a claim for whiplash from a car crash in East Northamptonshire
The first and most important proof (and this applies to any claim for personal injury, whether it’s a whiplash from a car crash in East Northamptonshire, a fractured bone, or a repetitive strain injury at work) is proof that the blame for the accident is attributable to a third party. The best supporting proof in terms of blame comes from any witnesses to the accident. Therefore, make sure you gather names and addresses of those who saw what actually happened.
Photographic evidence of any damage done to the vehicles involved is also helpful, as is a record of any footage taken by CCTV cameras in the road.
Many drivers are now fitting their vehicles with dashboard cameras and sensors, which record a whole host of information for insurance purposes. They often help to reduce the cost of premiums. Any information gathered on these devices can also help to backup your claim.
You will also need to be able to supply a copy of any medical diagnosis you received, plus confirmation of any medical treatment you may have been given.
Last but not least, you need to ensure that you register your claim within 3 years, although we here at Accident Advice Helpline always recommend the earlier the better as already mentioned.
Most whiplash injury victims like to get an idea of how much compensation they could be awarded for their injury. The easiest way to do this is by taking the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. You can take the test here on our website. Simply locate our HOW MUCH compensation calculator and follow the instructions it gives.
