    Whiplash injury claim how much

    When it comes to a whiplash injury claim how much does it mean to you?

    There you are, parked at the back of a line of traffic at the lights, just getting on with your day. Then, bang! Some careless motorist drives into the rear of your vehicle, you’re thrown forward by the impact and get a searing pain in your neck.

    If you’ve been injured in an accident and someone else is to blame, then the law says you have a right to compensation. In the case of road traffic accidents, the Accident Advice Helpline is just a free phone call away and with just a 30-second check test with one of our experienced advisers, you’ll be on your way to finding out just how much your whiplash injury claim may be worth.

    Genuine sufferers of whiplash injuries

    Sadly, traffic accident whiplash injuries are often made out by the media and on TV as exaggerated or as a way of someone making a dodgy compensation claim. The wide range of whiplash symptoms combined with negative hype of this kind means that genuine sufferers of accident whiplash have become less willing to claim for the injury and pain that whiplash can cause. We’ll determine very quickly how genuine your case is and just how much your whiplash injury claim is likely to run to.

    Whiplash injuries may have recurrent problems over time.  Weeks or months after the accident you may start to suffer neck, shoulder or back problems. The Accident Advice Helpline will confirm that you have up to three years after the accident to make a claim.

    What are the symptoms of whiplash?

    Well, these may be obvious to the victim but the most common symptoms include:
