    Whiplash injury in Cookham Dean

    Top things to know about working with personal injury solicitors for your whiplash injury in Cookham Dean

    After an accident, you may find yourself examining your options when it comes to compensation.

    Under UK law, you have a right to make a compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. Yet all too often, victims living in pain with a whiplash injury in Cookham Dean fail to follow through on this right. This can mean being left to pay for things like medication and treatment out of pocket expenses, or struggling to keep up with household bills while taking time off work to recuperate.

    If you have been injured through absolutely no fault of your own, you shouldn’t just accept the fact and live with the consequences. With our help, you can make sure you receive the full amount in a payout, all while keeping costs and stress to a minimum. If you are contemplating seeking compensation for a whiplash injury in Cookham Dean, there are some important things to keep in mind to help your personal injury lawyer build a strong case:

    You should be able to prove that you have whiplash

    Recently released statistics from the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers reveal that only one in 100 people have suffered a whiplash injury in the past year. It’s important to have your case of whiplash verified by a GP to strengthen the chances of a successful settlement.

    You should be able to prove you were not at fault for the accident

    According to the law, you can only claim compensation if you were in no way at fault for the accident, and you can prove the negligence of another party was to blame. You should therefore be able to prove that another driver was at fault, whether that’s through images captured on a camera phone, CCTV footage, copies of the official accident report or witness statements. The more information you can provide that supports your innocence, the better equipped your solicitor will be to build a compelling, strong case.
