The prevalence of RTAs and whiplash injuries
RTAs (Road Traffic Accidents) are one of the most significant causes of personal injury here in the UK, and whiplash, by far the highest category of RTA injury there is.
But before you can consider raising a personal injury claim for any sort of personal injury, you must first establish that the cause of the accident or incident that resulted in the injury is the fault of a third party.
Not only that, but the incident must also have taken place within the last three years.
Proof is a mandatory prerequisite of any whiplash injury claim
With any personal injury claim, we here at Accident Advice Helpline always recommend that you should have medical proof of the injury you are claiming for, regardless of the type of injury. With instances of whiplash injury, this proof is not only recommended, but it is a mandatory pre-requisite. Without it, your claim will not be considered.
It’s because there have been a high number of incidences of fraudulent claims attempting to be registered, and insurance companies are now being much more vigilant about the authenticity of any claim.
Any whiplash injury in Barnstaple is normally self-healing
If you do happen to sustain a whiplash injury in Barnstaple, or indeed anywhere else here in the UK, the severity can be anything from being merely uncomfortable, to being chronically painful. The good news is that in the majority of cases whiplash injury is self healing, although victims often take pain killers and undertake physical neck exercises to minimise pain and speed recovery.
Accident Advice Helpline
The more severe the injury, and the greater the degree of debilitation, the more compensation you may be due, especially if your recovery period is protracted and causes you any loss of income.
To check out how much compensation you could be due, you can use a tool that we at Accident Advice Helpline refer to as the 30-second test.
Just supply the answer to 4 simple questions from the drop-down boxes provided, and our compensation calculator will check the validity of your claim, (subject to later confirmation) will issue you with an estimate of its value.
