Have you been hurt in a road traffic accident?
You could be suffering with a whiplash injury in Corhampton, a common neck injury that arises after being involved in an accident on the roads. If this is the case, you may have a number of questions pertaining to your rights to compensation, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we’re here to help. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions we’re asked when it comes to claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Corhampton:
Who can make a claim?
You can make a compensation claim if you can prove your accident was caused by the negligence of a third party, and it took place within the past three years. For example, if a motorist was driving under the influence, driving while using a sat nav or mobile phone, they should be held accountable if their actions have caused you physical pain. Aside from being the right thing to do morally, claiming compensation is a legal right, too.
How much can I receive for a whiplash injury in Corhampton?
The amount you could be entitled to will depend on a number of factors. For example, if you’ve had to take unpaid time off work to recover, you can include this loss of earnings in your claim, and recover these costs in compensation. To get a better idea of how much you could be owed, fill in our online claims calculator. This online tool will provide you with a rough idea of what you could receive, or to receive a more detailed quote, phone our offices to have your case assessed by a claims advisor.
How long does it take to receive the payout?
In some cases, it can take as little as six weeks to receive the money you deserve in compensation. Every case is different, but straightforward cases or those that are settled of court are generally faster to process.
Isn’t it expensive to work with a personal injury lawyer?
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, you may be struggling with bills for chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, anti-inflammatory medications and more, all of which can become expensive quickly.
