FAQs about making a claim for a whiplash injury
If you’ve been in an accident involving an oversized vehicle, you could be entitled to financial compensation.
Lorries, tractors, coaches, buses and other large commercial vehicles can cause serious damage and injury in the event of a collision. If you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to receive compensation for a whiplash injury in Billingshurst caused by one of these and other oversized vehicles.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we field over 25,000 enquiries a month from people seeking our help and legal counsel after an accident. Here, we answer common questions, and provide insight into how to go about making a claim if you’ve sustained a whiplash injury in Billingshurst.
How can I prove I wasn’t at fault?
In order to make a compensation claim, you must be able to attribute the accident and consequent injury to someone else’s negligence. That is to say, you should be able to prove that you were in no way responsible for your road traffic accident. This can be done by providing your solicitor with copies of police accident reports, eyewitness statements and even photographs captured with a smartphone.
What happens if my accident did not occur recently?
You have up to three years after an accident to make a claim for your injuries, giving you time to recuperate before embarking on legal action.
How much can I claim for a whiplash injury in Billingshurst?
The amount you can receive for your whiplash injury will depend on a number of factors, but many of our claimants have received a substantial sum. Victims of mild cases may be awarded a few hundred pounds, while more serious cases can result in thousands of pounds being awarded.
