    Whiplash from a car crash in Essex


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Essex

    You may have suffered whiplash from a car crash in Essex, even though your car was stood still and another car ran into the back of you. This type of relatively low speed impact can still cause severe whiplash, because the injury victims are usually totally unprepared for the impact.

    If you’re involved in an accident that unfurls before your eyes, you can prepare your body for the shock. It doesn’t mean you won’t get a whiplash injury, but you can to a certain extent ride the shock. When you’re totally unprepared, if for example you’re sat in parked car, or you’ve pulled up at a set of traffic lights or a roundabout, any impact will take you totally by surprise and your head will jerk back and forth quite freely and violently.

    Your claim for whiplash from a car crash in Essex

    If this was the sort of whiplash from a car crash in Essex that you experienced, you may need the experience of someone like us here at Accident Advice Helpline to help to get your claim validated. With so many whiplash claims being fabricated and exaggerated, insurance companies are being very tough about the claims they will accept.

    As you may already be aware, we here at Accident Advice Helpline offer a no win no fee* guarantee. Although this is helpful in terms of you not having to pay our fee if your claim fails, the most important thing is to ensure your claim doesn’t fail in the first place, and to do this you must provide incontestable proof. This means:

    • Taking photographs at the scene of the accident
    • Providing medical proof of the injury diagnosis, its prognosis and any treatment
    • Supplying the names and addresses of any witnesses who will back-up your version of events

    You also need to register your claim at the earliest opportunity. The longer you delay, the more suspicious the insurance company may become.

    If you’ve been hurt and someone else is to blame, the law says you should be compensated. You may also be owed a significant amount of money, so you need to uphold your rights.

    As far as finding out how much you could be owed, you can take the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. It could well prove to be 30-seconds well spent.
