The answers you have been searching for if you have suffered a whiplash injury in Flempton
If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Flempton you will likely have a lot of questions in regards to making a compensation claim. This post aims to answer any of those concerns. Thus, let’s get right to it…
Do I have a good chance of getting compensation?
There is only one place to begin, and this is with whether your case is likely to result in compensation. In general, you need to be able to prove that the injury occurred because of someone else’s error or negligence, that it happened in the last three years and that you received medical attention for your injuries.
Will I have to go to court?
This is one of the main concerns people have. After all, having just suffered a whiplash injury the last thing you’d want to go through is the hassle of a trial as well. There are of course no guarantees. However, less than three per cent of personal injury cases actually result in court dates. So the chances are minimal!
How much compensation will I receive?
Unfortunately, this is impossible to say. Every case is different and (therefore) will results in different settlements. However, compensation is split into two parts. You will be compensated for your suffering. This is based on the severity of your injury and how it will impact the rest of your life. You will also be able to claim special damages. This relates to any expenses you have experienced because of your injuries. This can be anything from prescription costs to loss of income.
What will I need to do to make my claim as straightforward as possible?
There are several things your solicitor will require from you. They will obviously need thorough details regarding the incident. Therefore, it is advisable to jot these down as soon as you get a chance. Moreover, they will require contact information for any witnesses, and you will need to keep receipts of any of the expenses you have occurred as mentioned in the former point.
Hopefully these four questions will have answered some of your most pressing concerns. If you have any further queries, simply give Accident Advice Helpline a call on their free legal helpline. Here are the details you need…
