How to make a claim if you have suffered a whiplash injury in Harvington
Suffering a whiplash injury in Harvington can be extremely distressing, no matter how major or minor. Whilst we cannot turn back time, we can get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries. In this post we will provide you with all the information you need to know in regards to making a claim. So, keep on reading to find out more…
The first thing you need to do is determine whether you have the basis for a successful case. How do you do this? Well, ask yourself the following three questions…
- Was the whiplash injury in Harvington your fault?
- Did you receive medical attention as a result of your injuries?
- Did the accident happen within the last three years?
If you have answered ‘no’ to the first question and ‘yes’ to the following questions you definitely have the basis for a good claim. Question two is particularly noteworthy. When individuals suffer a minor whiplash injury in Harvington they often bypass going to the doctor, as they believe they can handle the injury themselves. However, if you do not see a medical professional you will not be able to claim, as there will be no proof that you have even sustained an injury.
Once you have asked yourself those queries the next thing you should do is get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. We have a free legal helpline available. You can find the details at the end of this post. We will provide you with further clarity regarding the strength of your case. If we believe you should proceed we will then put you in touch with one of our no win no fee solicitors. All of our solicitors work on this basis. This ensures you do not need any money to begin your claim.
After this, the only thing you need to do is make sure you keep a track of all of the expenses you encounter as a result of your whiplash injury in Harvington. This can be anything from medical costs and childcare expenses, to loss of income and travel costs. You will be able to claim for these as ‘special damages’ when making your claim, yet you will need proof in the form of receipts and such like.
