    Whiplash injury in Bristol

    Whether you live in Bristol in any part of the UK, it does not matter, you could still suffer a whiplash injury in Bristol after an accident which wasnt your fault. If this is the case for you, then you should make an injury compensation claim against the person responsible, using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to help you.

    How much compensation for a whiplash injury in Bristol?

    Whiplash happens when you damage the ligaments and tendons in your neck. The amount of compensation you might receive depends on how severe your whiplash injury in Bristol is. It also matters how long you suffer with your whiplash injury in Bristol for. But based on the amounts that have been awarded from the courts, you may receive:

    • Minor whiplash that takes up to a year for recovery £750 – £2850
    • Minor whiplash that takes up to 2 years for recovery £2850 – £5000
    • Moderate whiplash which you may have for a longer period, with the possibility of future vulnerability, £5000 – £8500
    • Severe whiplash where there are permanent ongoing symptoms of pain and suffering – £8500 upwards

    Other problems that can affect you from a whiplash injury

    Whiplash is caused when your head and neck are suddenly jolted out of their normal movement area, either forwards, backwards or sideways. Although other parts of your body can also be affected with pains and feelings of numbness, such as:

    • Hands and feet
    • Hips
    • Internal organs
    • Back or spine
    • Shoulders and chest area
    • Arms and legs

    If you suffer any extra symptoms due to your whiplash, then this could mean you receiving more compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline for some free advice about making a personal injury compensation claim.
