Who can make a claim after suffering a whiplash injury in Cookham on Thames?
Regardless of whether you were the driver or the passenger, you can make a compensation claim under UK law provided you were in no way at fault for the accident. This means someone else’s negligence caused the accident; for example, if a driver was speeding and caused a rear-end collision in which you suffered whiplash, you could make a compensation claim for the injury and hold the negligent driver to account.
How long do you have to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Cookham on Thames?
You have up to three years after an accident to make a claim. This can be particularly beneficial where whiplash is concerned, because not only do the symptoms take a while to onset, but they can also be long lasting and have varying degrees. By having some time to make a claim, you can make sure you do so for the full extent of your whiplash and therefore get the maximum amount possible in compensation.
