Solicitors say compensation claims must fully account for whiplash injury and victims losses
Solicitors are experts knowing whether the insurance company’s offers are fair and just. Solicitors say compensation claims must fully account for whiplash injury and victims losses. Solicitors say that to fully assess the extent of a victims injury can take time and that insurance companies often push for a quick resolution and that is not always in the best interest of the client.
Insurance companies often want to settle whiplash claims quickly and sometimes this can be appropriate and right. However sometimes it is wholly inappropriate and a good whiplash injury compensation claims solicitor will know that and may advise to wait before accepting the first offer from the insurance company. Often the first offer does not account for the possibility of any long term effects of the injury.
The long term effects of whiplash are really at the hub of whiplash injury compensation claims. Everyone who suffers whiplash from an accident usually experience one or more of the following effects headaches, stiffness in the neck muscles, stiffness in the shoulder muscles. To suffer these symptoms is not uncommon and often they disappear after a week or two.
However for some people these injuries do not heal and they find that one or two years later they are still suffering and in extreme cases the symptoms get worse. Solicitors advising whiplash victims will explain that whiplash injury compensation claims should take this time lag for symptoms to appear into consideration.
Why is this so important to understand? The main reason is that if a victim of an accident has their case assessed and the extent of the injury is agreed and compensation is then paid based on this assessment, even if the victim’s condition worsens they cannot claim any more compensation for the same accident.
