    Biggest mistakes made when making a claim for a whiplash injury in Hitchin

    If you have been the victim of a whiplash injury in Hitchin, and it was not your fault, you will be entitled to compensation. Nonetheless, there are often a lot of individuals who fail to get the full amount to which they are entitled. This is because there is a lack of knowledge regarding the process, and consequently mistakes are made. To make sure this does not happen to you, read on to discover more about the biggest mistakes made when making a claim for a whiplash injury in Hitchin.

    Failing to see a doctor after the incident – This is one of the main errors people make when they have suffered a whiplash injury in Hitchin. Luckily, whiplash tends to be a minor injury. Because of this, most people make a full recovery within a matter of weeks. Yet they also don’t believe they need to see a doctor, as they can cope with the injuries on their own. If you do this, you will find it impossible to claim, as there will be no proof of your injury.

    Waiting too long to make a claim – Another blunder is waiting too long to make a claim. Obviously you will want to focus on getting better, but don’t leave it too late. There is a three-year time limit on personal injury claims, and court proceedings must be issued before the deadline date, so don’t wait around! Moreover, it is worth pointing out that it will be easier to make a claim the sooner you go about it, as the incident will be fresh in your mind and getting witness statements will be easier.

    Not choosing a law firm with care – Many people choose the first law firm they find for their whiplash injury in Hitchin. They are so concerned about getting their compensation as quickly as possible. This is understandable, but you could be ruining your chances of getting the full amount you deserve. Accident Advice Helpline is an experienced law firm that has helped thousands of personal injury victims since we were established in 2000. If you read our reviews, you will see that we have an exceptional reputation in the industry.
