All people who claim compensation for personal injury have one thing in common – they were hurt as a result of an accident or injury that was not their fault. Some people go on to claim compensation, but others do not. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make a claim.
How can I prove I had a whiplash injury in Exmouth?
This comes down to the medical attention and treatment you received. Paramedics and other professional medical staff are all too aware of how injuries can lay hidden after an accident, even in modern cars that are far safer than they ever were in the past.
Most people who suffer a whiplash injury in Exmouth have an X-ray, followed by medication to ease swelling, inflammation, and pain. Whiplash is a ‘soft tissue injury,’ so your neck and shoulders may be feel bruised and tender.
For the majority of victims, this is an injury that, while painful, is only short-term. However, there are other victims who claim for a whiplash injury in Exmouth who suffer long-term damage, requiring a far great input from a variety of medical professionals.
Is a whiplash injury in Exmouth still something for which I can claim?
There has been a lot of talk recently about curbing the number of claims for compensation that are made for this type of injury. However, do not be put off by this, as whiplash is still a very real injury for those who suffer it as a result of a genuine accident.
There have been issues with ‘cash for crash’ claims, and a whiplash injury in Exmouth is difficult to pinpoint under X-ray as it is a soft tissue rather than a bone fracture. Nonetheless, if you have had a genuine accident of which a whiplash injury was a result, you could have a claim for compensation.
Will I have to attend court when I claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Exmouth?
No. The majority of our cases – both for whiplash and other injuries – do not end up in court, which we believe is a direct result of the work we put into our cases. All cases hinge on who was to blame for the accident, so we ensure that we show the liability of the ‘other side’ so that it is irrefutable, meaning you receive a settlement cheque quickly without attending court.
