    Whiplash injury in Chelmsford


    Have you suffered a whiplash injury in Chelmsford? Was someone else to blame for the accident or incident that brought your injury about? If the answer to both of these questions is yes then you are entitled both legally and morally to claim financial compensation and we here at Accident Advice Helpline will assist.

    What is whiplash injury?

    The most common cause of whiplash injury is a road traffic accident in which the impact causes the victim’s head and neck to snap backwards and forwards in “whiplash” like fashion. This violent involuntary motion stretches the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the neck far beyond their normal travel and will eventually cause a severe inflammatory reaction. We say eventually because the symptoms don’t materialise immediately. They often manifest themselves the next day or sometimes several days later.

    Because whiplash injury is relatively easy to fake you will need to ensure that you get proper medical attention and a proper medical diagnosis. You will need to provide evidence of this when we submit your claim for whiplash injury in Chelmsford (or anywhere else here in the UK for that matter).

    Whiplash injuries vary anywhere from being a minor inconvenience and discomfort, to being a major injury that can include spinal damage. Claims vary anywhere from £1000 to £97,000.

    Before you launch your claim you will probably be interested to know how much it could be worth. Taking our 30-second test here on this website will give you an idea, but the more complicated the injury, the more compensation you are likely to receive, and the only way of establishing what that compensation might be is to register your claim with all of the medical backup to substantiate it.

    Supplying proof for your whiplash injury in Chelmsford

    Because of all of the bad press that whiplash injury claims have had in the past due to the “cash for crash” fiascos organised by criminal gangs, you will need to supply as much in the way of proof as you can when you register your claim. This proof can include witness statements, photographs of damage to any vehicles involved, or street CCTV footage if an operational camera recorded the events.

    We operate a free helpline service for anyone who needs help and advice and would rather get it from a real person than scrolling through our website. You can access this free helpline service from any UK-based landline by dialling 0800 689 0500. You also have the option of using your mobile although you will be charged for your call by your call-provider. If this doesn’t put you off then the number to ring is 0333 500 0993.
