In the current climate, if you sustain a whiplash injury in Chichester, or in any other town, village or city here in the UK, it’s advisable to ensure that you have plenty of evidence and proof in place in order to back up any claim that you might make for financial compensation.
Tighter scrutiny for new whiplash injury in Chichester claims
Any new claims for whiplash injury in Chichester, or anywhere else here in the UK are now being very closely examined for any anomalies that might indicate a claim is fraudulent.
For the genuine whiplash injury victim, it simply means that your claim needs to be presented in a certain way, with appropriate proofs and evidence in place, in order to ensure it is treated as being a genuine claim.
Maximising your claims chances for success
In order to improve the chances of success for any whiplash injury claim the following criteria needs to be examined:
- The blame for the injury must lie with someone other than the injury victims themselves.
- The accident or incident that brought the whiplash injury about, must have taken place within the past three years.
- The injury must be of a reasonably substantial nature, causing severe discomfort, the possible necessity for physiotherapy, and perhaps necessitating time taken off work.
- Medical proof from a qualified medical practitioner will be required.
Take photos and gather witnesses contact details
There are some other things that you can do to further substantiate your claim. You can for example, take photographs to show what damage was caused to both vehicles.
