    Whiplash injury in Castletown

    One of the questions victims considering making a compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Castletown often ask, is how long will it take? You might as well ask the question how long is a piece of string, because the answer will be the same – you do not know until you get to the end.

    Generally though, personal injury claims take a relatively short time. Some victim’s wait as little as six weeks, others have to wait a few months. It depends on the type of accident, the type of injuries, any complexities that happen along the way and if the claim needs to go to court or not. Waiting for a court date can cause some of the longest delays of all, but thankfully at Accident Advice Helpline, we settle most of them before they reach that stage.

    You will always read of cases in the media, which have taken years. These are very rare and there are nearly always underlying reasons for the delays. They are often high profile cases for some reason, and the sort that sell newspapers so they are reported on.

    The media reporting that Fred Bloggs got his compensation for a whiplash injury in Castletown in just six weeks, or that Vera Smith got her compensation for the accident she had at work after 5 months, would not sell newspapers, so the multitude of everyday claims such as these, do not get reported.

The details of any witnesses, receipts for any extra expenses you have had and any other information you feel might strengthen your claim.
    • Respond quickly to any queries or questions about your claim. As a specialist right law firm, our lawyers will be acting quickly and efficiently to conclude your claim and you could cause delays by not responding quickly to their requests for any further information about your whiplash injury in Castletown.
