    Whiplash injury in Derbyshire

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Derbyshire

    Thinking of claiming for a whiplash injury Derbyshire?

    Read on to find more about the injury, how it is caused and how to claim compensation with Accident Advice Helpline…

    There are many contradictory reports, articles and research out there about this type of injury, not helped by the recent ‘crash for cash’ scams that have come to light in recent years. Understanding what whiplash is can help!

    It is rare for whiplash to be immediate; what tends to happen is that the severity of it grows over the hours after the crash or impact, from the initial jolt of pain to what can be numbness and tingling in extreme cases.

    The severity of the injury depends on the force of the impact, not necessarily the speed. So a low speed impact between two vehicles can be just as forceful as a glancing blow from a vehicle doing 70mph.

    Many people who made a claim for their whiplash injury in Derbyshire did so after suffering weeks of pain but, at the time of the accident, as there was no damage to their vehicle, assumed there was no damage to them! This is not case and this shows that it pays to get medical advice and treatment, even if you think you may not be injured.

    Claiming for whiplash injury in Derbyshire with Accident Advice Helpline

    Here at AAH, we have worked with hundreds of people to help them claim compensation for their whiplash injury in Derbyshire; we know how serious it can be, but we also know that many people go on to make a full recovery too.

    Just because you may get better from your injuries, does not mean you are not entitled to make a claim for compensation!

    In order to have an eligible claim, your case needs to meet the following criteria:

    • The accident or incident must not have been your fault
    • Your injury – whiplash and any others you intend claiming compensation for – must have been assessed by a medical professional; in some cases, you may also find that your injuries will need to have been substantial enough to be ‘treated’. In other words, the symptoms were such that you were given medication or other treatment.
    • You must be claiming compensation for your whiplash injury in Derbyshire within 3 years of the date of the accident – beyond this time will mean your claim is not eligible (and not even AAH can do anything about that!)
