FAQs about claiming compensation after suffering a whiplash injury
Were you hurt in a car accident that was not your fault?
You could be eligible to claim compensation.
If you’ve suffered whiplash in an accident that was in no way your fault within the past three years, you could be within your legal rights to make a claim. The law states that if you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim for the needless pain and suffering you have been caused.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are asked a number of questions about the compensation claims process every day, and use our fourteen years of experience to provide fair and honest answers. Here, we answer some of the most common questions surrounding making a whiplash claim, making clear the process for all innocent accident victims.
How much can I receive in compensation for a whiplash injury in Butley?

Firstly, you can enter the details into our thirty-second claims calculator, the quickest way to see how much you could be owed, or you can call our helpline directly to discuss your accident with a claims representative.

How long does it take to receive the full amount in compensation?
Factors such as whether or not the settlement was reached in or out of court will play a factor in how long it takes for the money to be awarded. In some cases, it can take as little as six weeks, but every case is different.
What does No Win, No Fee mean?
No Win, No Fee is a term used to describe our payment policy. Designed to make affording compensation as straightforward as possible, our conditional fee agreement means you don’t have to pay any money upfront to get a claim underway.
