Whiplash injury in Havant
Being involved in a car crash can obviously be extremely distressing. Nonetheless, if the incident was not your fault and you have sustained whiplash as a result, you will be entitled to personal injury compensation. This post provides you with all of the information you need to know in regards to the role you play when making a claim for a whiplash injury in Havant.
The first thing you need to do before you have even think about getting compensation is make sure you take all the details from relevant people and then take a trip to the doctors. You will need contact details from the person who cause the crime, as well as any witnesses. Of course it can be difficult to think like this when you have just been involved in a car crash. However, witness statements can really help your case.
You then have to visit a medical professional. You may think this sounds like common sense – of course I am going to visit a doctor, I’ve just been in a crash! You would be shocked to discover how many people fail to do this. Thankfully most people who have a whiplash injury in Havant do not end up with any serious injuries, therefore they seem to think they can take care of themselves. Not only is this not recommended for medical reasons, but you also will not be able to claim if you have not visited a doctor.
When you have seen a doctor you then need to arm yourself with a good solicitor. This is where Accident Advice Helpline come in. All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis. This ensures financial risk is eliminated and you can be certain you are thus benefitting from a much higher level of quality. Aside from this, you must keep proof of any expenses you have encountered because of the whiplash injury in Havant.
You will be able to claim for these as special damages. This can be anything from medical expenses and prescription costs, to travel expenses and hospital car parking fees, to accommodation and childcare costs.
