If you have been involved in a road traffic accident then there is a good chance that you have been injured as a result. This is because you don’t have to be travelling at speed to have suffered whiplash injuries from a car crash in Eden. The vehicle itself could even have been stationery and you may just have been hit from behind by another road user.
However, no matter what the situation or the cause of your injuries, if you were not to blame then there is a good chance that you will be able to secure compensation. This is where the team at Accident Advice Helpline can come in. We are able to help people secure the financial compensation they are entitled to after accidents that they did not cause.
Can you claim for whiplash injuries from a car crash in Eden?
It can be hard to know whether or not you can make a claim for compensation. This is because there are lots of different things that need to be taken in to account. First, you will need to be able to prove that the accident you were involved in was not your fault. This is not entirely down to you to prove, your Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you; however, when you first get in touch with us you will need to be fairly certain that the accident was someone else’s fault and why.
Once we are confident that the accident was not your fault we will need to ascertain what sort of injury you have had. While it is important that you have been injured, it is just as important that you are aware that the injury must fulfill certain criteria. Namely that you must have had to seek medical attention, and treatment as a result of your injury. This will show that it is serious enough for you to have been awarded compensation.
Even if your injury was serious and you did not seek medical attention then you are unlikely to be able to make a claim. By seeing your doctor, or going to your local A&E you are providing evidence of the legitimacy of your claim.
