Know whether you can make a claim for a whiplash injury
If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Blagdon as a result of a road traffic accident, whether or not you can make a compensation claim depends entirely upon whether or not you were at fault for the accident, and if you are able to prove that you weren’t.
If the accident was caused by someone else, and you are able to prove that your whiplash injury in Blagdon was not your own fault, an experienced injury lawyer should be able to process your claim easily and get you the compensation you deserve.
If you do not have enough evidence of either the other party being at fault or your own whiplash injury in Blagdon, then you may be unsuccessful, which can cost you money and make for a stressful and upsetting time.
Here are some ways in which to tell whether your claim is likely to be successful.
The accident was clearly the fault of the other driver
If your car has been hit from behind or from the side, or if you were parked at the time, then you will likely have a perfect case for compensation. What you need is a case that your injury lawyer can argue and win based on the evidence at hand. In some cases, an accident will so clearly be the fault of one or other of the drivers that they will admit fault there and then, in which case you should be able to make a claim easily.
You have medical evidence of your whiplash injury in Blagdon
You can only make a claim for a whiplash injury if you can prove that your injury is legitimate and was caused by your accident. You should visit a doctor as soon after your accident as you can and get them to examine you and write up a medical report of your injuries. This should state what your injuries were, what the severity of your injuries were, and how likely it is that they were caused by your accident.
