If someone gets a whiplash injury in Castle Douglas through no fault of their own, from a compensation point of view it is the same as getting a fracture in Bristol, a burn in London or a back injury in Leeds. If someone else was to blame, the innocent victim is entitled to compensation, no matter what the injury or where it happened.
Claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Castle Douglas, or any of the other injuries anywhere else, need not be the daunting prospect it sounds. For many victims, it will be the first time they have made a personal injury claim, and like with many things in life, venturing into the unknown can be a bit worrying.
How much for a whiplash injury in Castle Douglas
Understandably, victims usually like to know how much they will be awarded, but that is very hard to say at this early stage of a claim. So much varies from victim to victim, that even the same accident type with similar injuries can end up with different awards. There are things such as the impact on your life to be accounted for, if you are employed did you lose any income, and there are usually lots of extra expenses associated with an accident.
The best we can do to start with is to give you an estimate of how much it might be. On our website, there is our 30-second test which will give you an estimate of how much your compensation might be and it is by completing this that many of our claimants start their personal injury claim.
