    Whiplash injury in Chester-Le-Street


    If you’ve sustained a whiplash injury in Chester-Le-Street, the fault of which is down to a third party, then you’ll need to set about raising a personal injury claim to obtain the compensation that you’re legally entitled to at the earliest opportunity. But to make sure that your claim is seen as a genuine one, and not one of many bogus claims that are often being raised, you’ll need to make sure you supply the necessary proofs to back it up.

    The number of bogus whiplash injury claims may finally be reducing

    With almost one new claim being registered every minute, the UK has the unenviable title of being considered the whiplash injury capital of Europe. But there are signs that the more stringent conditions that are now in place regarding the burden of proof for any whiplash injury claim are beginning to take effect. According to statistics, motoring insurance premiums have reduced by as much as £100 per policy in the last 12 months. The reason for this reduction is being attributed to a substantial decline in the amount of whiplash injury claims being registered.

    Insurance premiums down by 16.76%

    It appears that the average insurance premium has reduced by 16.76% in the first three months of this year (2014) when compared to the same period last year. The average motor insurance premium here in the UK is now £531.

    This may go some way towards appeasing the critics of the insurance industry who have been accused of being too lenient in paying out compensation against so many fraudulent claims, and funding it by increasing insurance premiums for British motorists across the board. It’s just as well as it meant that good honest drivers were being made to pay for the unscrupulous fraudsters.
