Whiplash injury in Holloway: The myths
Unfortunately, for someone who has been a victim of a whiplash injury in Holloway the claim process can be a bit of a puzzle.
- Do I have the basis for a compensation claim?
- Will I have to go to court?
- How do I go about making a claim?
The questions are endless and there is a lot of misinformation that goes around. This post aims to clear some of that up by revealing some of the biggest myths in relation to claims for a whiplash injury in Holloway…
Myth 1: You don’t need to see a doctor if you have suffered a minor whiplash injury in Holloway
You MUST see a doctor no matter how minor or major your injuries are. Luckily, whiplash tends to be a minor injury for most people, and therefore they recover within a couple of weeks. Because of this, many individuals feel they can bypass seeing a doctor. Not only is this ill advised for medical reasons, but also you will fail to make a personal injury claim without proof of visiting a medical professional.
Myth 2: You can make a personal injury claim whenever you like
A lot of people do not realize that there is a three-year time limit on most personal injury claims. The only exceptions are those whereby it takes a while for the injuries to show themselves. Yet this is never the case for a whiplash injury in Holloway. Court proceedings must be issued before the deadline date.
Myth 3: You do not need a solicitor for your personal injury case
There is nothing stopping you from making a personal injury claim without a solicitor. Yet, this is highly ill advised! Without proper training and experience you will struggle to get the compensation you could be entitled to. If you are worried about the high fees associated with solicitors, don’t be. Go for a no-win, no-fee* solicitor instead. You will be pleased to know that all of our solicitors work on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
