Whiplash injury in Claverdon


Steps to take before claiming compensation for a whiplash injury

Dealing with the fallout from a road accident, particularly if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Claverdon or any other type of injury, can be difficult.

You need to deal with the physical, financial, and emotional repercussions of your accident in the weeks following your accident, and this can be upsetting and stop you from being able to get back to your everyday life quickly. On the financial side, paying for damages to your own vehicle, and the vehicle of the other driver if the accident was your fault, can be very expensive, and cause you to lose your no claims bonus on your insurance.

If the accident was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation for your whiplash injury in Claverdon. The best way to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Claverdon is to speak to an experienced injury lawyer who can handle your claim for you.

Accident Advice Helpline can put you in contact with an in house injury lawyer, and will also talk you through the claims process to make it easier on you. Call the helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile if you feel that you do want to proceed with a claim.

However, this process can be difficult and take a long time, so before you decide to take this step, here are some other ways you may be able to resolve the situation.

Claim on insurance

If you are sure that your whiplash injury in Claverdon was the fault of the other driver, then you may be able to claim for the damages to your vehicle, as well as any injury you have sustained through their insurance.

A police report at the time will prove that you were not to blame for the crash, and a medical assessment from your doctor will prove your injuries. This should make it simple for you to make a claim on their insurance for expenses and medical bills.

Write a letter of complaint

This is not always suitable for road accidents, but if your accident was not caused by another person, but by the condition of the road, you may have a cause for complaint to the local authority.

If you can put together a letter of complaint and prove that the road was in a condition that was the fault of the local authority, they may offer to pay compensation for the damage to both your vehicle, yourself and any passengers. It is still worthwhile speaking to Accident Advice Helpline or a solicitor to find out how best to go about this.

Speak to your own insurance company

If your car insurance covers personal injury as well as the damage to your car, you may be able to make a quick claim which will cover all of the costs of your accident. Call your insurance company to find out more.
