In order to successfully pursue a claim for whiplash injury in Chard, or in any other town, city or village here in the UK, you’re going to have to make sure that you appoint the right specialist injury claim solicitor to work with; one who knows the ins and outs of whiplash injury protocol, with particular regard to what is happening at the moment; one like us guys here at the Accident Advice Helpline.
The burden of proof
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we’ve always understood that the burden of proof needs to be undertaken by the injury victim. It has become increasingly apparent that the number of fraudulent claims being registered has gone through the roof.
With 477,000 claims made last year, it amounted to virtually one claim being raised every minute. It’s got to the stage, whereby 78% of minor motoring injuries were being accounted for by whiplash injury claims alone.
Time to take action
It has now been bought to the government’s attention that in order to finance the paying out of over £2 billion worth of compensation, insurance companies have increased premiums on motor insurance by approximately £90 per policy in order to fund the money. Together, the government, the Ministry of Justice, and the Insurance Industry are determined to rid our nation of its title of the “Whiplash Injury Claim Capital of Europe.”
Accident Advice Helpline doing its bit
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we too are prepared to do our bit in order to ensure that genuine whiplash injury victims can still obtain the compensation to which they’re legally and morally entitled. By making our claimants aware of best practice in terms of raising personal injury claims for whiplash injury, we hope to both safeguard and speed up payment of appropriate compensation.
Pre-validate your claim for whiplash injury in Chard, in principle
It all starts with the compensation calculator that can be found on the homepage of our website. Whether a claimant is enquiring after compensation for a whiplash injury in Chard, or some other sort of personal injury sustained in the workplace at Chessington for example, our calculator uses the same principles.
Claimants answer 4 simple questions by selecting the appropriate responses from the drop-down boxes, and within 30 seconds their potential claim will be validated in principle, and a compensation estimate will be issued.
Other things to bolster your claim
To bolster their claim, any claimant should ensure that the burden of blame for the accident lies with a third party; that they have medical proof of the whiplash injury sustained; that they have police references, photographic evidence if possible, and the contact details of any witnesses.
