When you sustain a whiplash injury in Brenchley you may suffer more than you imagine, as many victims do not realise what a painful and disabling injury whiplash can be. It is one of the most common injuries sustained in a road traffic accident. If the accident was the fault of someone else, you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline about compensation.
The same applies to any accident that was not your fault, as UK law says that in this situation, if your injuries were severe enough to need medical attention and happened some time within the last three years, the guilty party should pay you recompense for the suffering they have caused.
The evidence you might need for a whiplash injury in Brenchley
If the accident is straightforward and the other person admits that it was their fault, a personal injury claim is dealt with fairly quickly as it is really a matter of agreeing the amount of compensation to be paid. But what happens if the other party denies being responsible for your whiplash injury in Brenchley?
In this case, you will have to prove that the accident was their fault, and to do this you will need as much evidence as possible. This could comprise of:
- Photos of the accident scene, perhaps taken on your mobile phone;
- Details of any witnesses to the accident; and
- If the police were called, a copy of the incident report they will have completed.
There will be other things required as well, such as medical reports from the medical practitioner who treated your injuries.
Do not be out of pocket
As well as claiming for your injury and any impact it has had on your life, you can recoup any costs and losses that you have incurred because of the accident — such things as loss of earnings, extra medical costs, any help you have needed around the house or maybe childcare costs.
But just like the fault of the accident, you have to be able to prove these, so keep all of the receipts and wage slips if you have them. You should not be out of pocket because someone else caused you to be injured.
