FAQs about claiming compensation for a mild case of whiplash
You don’t need to be involved in a serious accident to develop a case of whiplash.
In fact, statistics reveal just the opposite. According to facts released by the Association for Personal Injury lawyers, rear-end collisions that take place at slow speeds are the leading cause of whiplash. This means that even a minor accident can leave you facing this painful neck injury, often requiring months of therapy to heal. If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Cookham, you could be entitled to make a compensation claim and receive remuneration for this injury. To get a better idea of what the process entails, read on to find answers to questions commonly asked about making a claim for a case of whiplash.
Can I make a claim for my whiplash injury in Cookham?
If you have been involved in a car accident that was not your fault, you can make a claim under UK law. You are within your rights to pursue a claim provided the accident took place within the past three years, and you can prove that the negligence of another driver caused it to occur.
What can I claim for?
You can make a compensation claim for, not only the physical injury itself, but also any repercussions that it has caused. For example, if you have had to invest in a neck brace, anti-inflammatory and pain medication as well as ice packs to treat your case of whiplash, you can include these in your claim to ensure you are reimbursed for them. If you have had to take a few days off work to recover, you can also claim back the income lost to ensure you are not left out of pocket.
