    Whiplash injury in Bath

    If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident and you’ve picked up a whiplash injury in Bath, you may be looking for the services of a good specialist injury claim solicitor like ourselves here at Accident Advice Helpline.

    The fallout due to the high number of fraudulent claims

    Sadly because there is a large amount of fraudulent claims for whiplash injury, it’s important that you should select an injury claim lawyer who really knows the ropes. Until quite recently insurance companies have been paying out compensation without checking out the availability of appropriate medical evidence to substantiate claims.

    Due to escalating costs, and the fact that the government has now become involved too, that’s all set to change. As a result we are now advising all our potential clients that ideally they should have been examined and treated by a doctor, and that the doctor in question will be able to confirm the details of the injury if and when asked to do so.

    Confirming the validity of your whiplash injury in Bath

    There are also several other factors you should be aware of that are necessary to confirm the validity of any claim for personal injury, irrespective of whether the injury in question is whiplash or something else.

    • The blame for the accident/incident that causes an injury must be attributable to a third party
    • The injury must have been sustained within the past three years
    • The nature and severity of the injury must be serious enough to warrant the raising of any claim for compensation
    • The availability of any medical proof, and/or witness statements to back up any claim.

    The amount of compensation is variable dependent on certain factors

    The amount of compensation that is paid out for a whiplash injury in Bath can vary dependent on how severe the injury is, the level of debilitation that it brings about, and how long it takes to recover from.

    Other factors that can affect the amount of compensation that will be awarded include the cost of any travelling that is necessitated to obtain treatment, and any actual loss of earnings.
