Victim of a whiplash injury in Ellesmere Port? Entitled to make a compensation claim?
From road traffic accidents to slips and trips, there is a whole host of events that can result in an individual suffering from a whiplash injury in Ellesmere Port. If you have sustained whiplash, did you know that you are eligible for compensation if the accident was not your fault?
A lot of people do not realise that this is the case, and therefore they miss out on the money they are entitled to. Often, when people do realise this, it is too late, as most personal injury cases have a three-year time limit.
What should you do if you have experienced a whiplash injury in Ellesmere Port?
Before exploring the claim process, you need to make sure you get medical attention. This is imperative. A lot of people believe they can cope with the symptoms themselves, as whiplash is often a minor injury. However, if you fail to see a medical professional, how will you have any proof that you did indeed suffer from whiplash? It will be impossible to claim merely on the basis that you say you had whiplash.
Once you have received medical attention you should then document all of the details regarding the incident. If you can get the details of any witness, then make sure you do so. This will help your solicitor to build a strong case for you. Moreover, make sure you keep a note and proof of any other costs that you experienced because of the whiplash injury in Ellesmere Port. This can be anything from medical expenses, to travel costs, to loss of income, to childcare expenses and more. You will be compensated for these as special damages.
