If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Crianlarich the first thing you need to do is see a medical professional, even if your injuries are minor. If you don’t see a medical expert you will struggle to get the compensation you are entitled to. After all, you will have no proof that you have been injured, and thus it will be extremely difficult for a solicitor to fight your corner.
When it comes to getting compensation you generally need to be able to prove three things. Aside from seeking medical attention, you will also have to show that the accident was not your fault and that the injuries were sustained in the last three years. If this is the case, you should not experience too much trouble getting the money you are entitled to.
When it comes to back injuries that have been sustained because of whiplash the compensation amount differs dramatically. Minor back injuries tend to result in compensation of anything up to £8,250. However, severe back injuries can result in compensation of between £66,000 and £111,000. A severe injury would be one that has very serious consequences for the individual, such as double incontinence or impotence.
