You may be entitled to make an injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Brigg, using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, if you have suffered this injury sometime within the last 3 years and the accident happened through no fault of your own.
It is impossible to give you an accurate figure on the amount of compensation you will receive for your whiplash injury in Brigg at the start of your claim. This is due to the fact that there are lots of different factors that need to be considered when you sustain a whiplash injury; for example, how bad your injury is, how long it will take for you to recover, and how your injury will affect your life.
What an estimated payout for a whiplash injury in Brigg might be
The only way we can give you an estimate of how much compensation you might be awarded can be based on previous cases of a whiplash injury. In the majority of cases, the claim will be settled out of court, so you will not have to go through the stress of a court appearance.
Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test will give you an indication of the amount, but it is an estimate, not a guaranteed figure.
Does it matter if the accident happened in a car accident?
The answer to this question is: ‘no, it does not’. The most common way to get whiplash is through a road traffic accident, but it is not the only way by any means. Normally, when another car goes into the back of your car at force, this causes your head to move out of its normal comfort zone, in any direction. This will cause damage to your ligaments and tendons in your neck creating a whiplash injury in Brigg.
If this is how you got your whiplash there are a few things to consider before making your claim:
- Was someone else to blame for the accident?
- Has it happened within the last three years?
- Did you seek medical attention for your injury?
- Have you incurred any extra costs because of the accident?
- Has your recovery meant losing time from work?
If this is your situation, UK law says you are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, and for the payment of any costs and losses you have had to bear because of your injuries.
