    Whiplash injury in Chesterfield


    Anyone contemplating claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Chesterfield is recommended to try the no win no fee* personal injury claim service that we offer here at AAH. It’s one of the most user-friendly and successful services within the injury claim industry and is unreservedly recommended by the former TV personality and consumer champion Esther Rantzen.

    Enhance your claims chances of success

    Using the services of an injury claim specialist like AAH can enhance your claim’s chances of success; especially bearing in mind the recent bad press that whiplash injury claims have been getting. Unfortunately, the bad press has been somewhat deserved, with the UK upholding its title claim to being the whiplash injury capital of Europe, with almost one new claim being launched every minute.

    However, more recent news is suggesting that the high incidence rate of bogus claims is now beginning to fall, and that this fall is responsible for motor insurance premiums being reduced by as much as £100 per policy.

    Sorting out the wheat from the chaff

    But understandably, having had its fingers burnt badly with so many bogus claims, the insurance industry is very anxious to spot any new fraudulent claims, meaning any new whiplash injury claim is likely to come under scrutiny as they attempt to sort out the wheat from the chaff, which is where working with somebody like  AAH can be of real benefit.

    In order to give any claim you might be raising for a whiplash injury in Chesterfield the best chance of success, you will need to:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • Provide sound, medical proof of the nature and severity of the injury you sustained.
    • Provide unequivocal proof that the blame for the accident that brought the injury about is attributable to a third party.
    • If possible, provide any photographs showing the damage to the vehicles involved.
    • Offer the names and addresses of any witnesses who can corroborate your claim.

    Whiplash injury compensation can be substantial

    The amount of compensation that is awarded for whiplash injuries can be quite substantial. The minimum figure is around £875, but awards have reached £16,000, and more, per claim, where a chronic whiplash injury has been sustained; the recovery process has been slow (in some cases, taking 12 months and over); additional costs have been incurred to cover travelling to obtain physiotherapy, or some sort of loss of earnings has taken place.
