Commonly asked questions about claiming compensation for a whiplash injury
If you’ve been in a car accident in or around Bushey Heath, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Who can make a compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Bushey Heath?
If you’ve been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, be it at work, in a public place or on the road, you could be entitled to make a claim. It is common for whiplash to develop as a result of a car accident, but virtually any accident in which the head is thrown about violently can lead to its onset. If the negligence of another party has caused you to be involved in an accident and suffer whiplash, you are within your legal rights to claim compensation.
Is it expensive to hire a personal injury lawyer?
Our law firm works on a No Win, No Fee basis. We understand that it can be expensive to treat any injury, especially whiplash, which can require rounds of chiropractic and massage therapy. You shouldn’t have to forgo legal representation because of these and other costs, which is why we don’t require any money upfront to start a claim.
How much is a compensation claim worth?
The amount you could be awarded for a whiplash injury in Bushey Heath will depend on a number of factors. For mild cases, claimants are normally awarded a few hundred pounds, while more serious cases can warrant thousands of pounds in a payout. To find out how much you could receive, fill in our thirty-second claims calculator online.
Is there a time limit?
You have up to three years after being involved in an accident to make a claim, so don’t put it off. With our help, you can potentially receive the full amount you deserve so that you’re not left out of pocket financially after an accident.
