FAQs about making a claim for a whiplash injury
Whiplash is a common injury, and one that warrants compensation for all the pain and inconvenience caused.
If you weren’t to blame for your injury, you shouldn’t be left to pay, and we can make sure that doesn’t happen. If you’ve got questions about your right to claim compensation, read on to learn more about how we can help.
Who can make a compensation claim?
You could be entitled to make a claim if you have been injured:
a) within the past three years; and
b) because of someone else’s negligence
For example, if you were stationery at a red traffic light, and a negligent driver failed to brake and caused a rear-end collision, you could stand to receive remuneration for your injuries. If you weren’t to blame, you shouldn’t be left to pay, and it is your legal right to claim for the maximum amount possible under these circumstances.
