    Whiplash injury in Britain


    If you are unlucky enough to sustain a whiplash injury in Britain through a car accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to make an injury compensation claim.

    However there are rules you have to comply with to be able to make a compensation claim. These rules state:

    • The accident was cause through no fault of your own
    • The cause of your whiplash needed medical attention
    • It happened within the last three years

    Accidents are never planned, and generally produce expenses that were not planned either. Extra medical expenses, travel costs, childcare, home help and a host of other items can suddenly have to be paid for because you are unable to do them yourself while you are recovering.  Make sure you get receipts for anything you have to pay out because then they can be recouped as part of your claim.

    Making a claim for a whiplash injury in Britain

    When you are in the process of making a personal injury compensation claim for any injuries that you may have suffered in an accident that was not your fault, then we will make sure it gets the proper attention and care, to maximise the chances of your claim being a success.

    Gather as much evidence as you can regarding the accident to ensure that you have as strong a case as possible.  Witness details, photos, police reports can all be useful in proving the other party was to blame.  You will also need medical reports to confirm the severity of your injuries, and may be asked to attend an independent medical assessment.
