What you need to know before making a claim for a whiplash injury in Denver
Sounds frightening, daunting and off-putting, three reasons why the 7 out of 10 people in the UK who are entitled to claim compensation for their injuries do NOT do so.
If you have been hurt – or maybe you feel you have a claim for compensation for a whiplash injury in Denver – read on to find out more about the court process and medical assessments.
Appearing in court
The biggest and singular most daunting prospect of any claim, is the prospect of appearing in court before a judge and having to defend yourself, justify why you are seeking compensation and talking through the whole accident.
Here is the great news: in our experience, this rarely happens!
Appearing in court is a rare event because:
- Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we put together a comprehensive case that clearly shows that the ‘other side’ were liable (that is, responsible) for the accident and your subsequent injuries
- We also make sure we have a comprehensive medical report that shows the level of injury too
Court appearances happen where cases are complex or contested by the other side, or if the injuries are severe, as well as wide and varied.
Some clients looking to claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Denver find the idea of going through a medical assessment also incredibly stressful. Many see this as a negative thing, that is, people do not believe them. After all, how difficult is it to give evidence of the pain you may be in on a daily basis?
Many people with whiplash type injuries, also feel that they are not believed as the type of injury they have received is currently receiving bad press. In other words, it is easy to scam this type of injury, pretend that the neck hurts and walk away with thousands of pounds, only to find the injury miraculously clears up!
However, for anyone looking to claim compensation for a genuine whiplash injury in Denver, having your injury independently medically assessed might not be a bad or negative thing.
Whiplash injury is common in impact victims, hence hospitals and doctors still refer patients for a series of x-rays to check the top of the spine and neck. Even ‘just’ soft tissue damage is recognised as being painful and in need of some additional treatment, not just medication but physiotherapy too.
