Tell us about your whiplash injury in Hamilton
When you are thinking of claiming compensation for any kind of personal injury, there are certain pieces of key information you will need to provide to AAH and our specialist solicitor who could be working on your case. To help you, we have complied some questions below, the answer to which will begin to form the outline of your case…
Who was responsible for your whiplash injury in Hamilton?
Many people find themselves hurt as a result of an accident; unfortunately, for some people a sense of injustice can prevail, as they were not responsible for it.
For example, you may have been travelling to work one morning when the car behind failed to stop. The resulting whiplash injury in Hamilton could have impacted on your life more than your thought it would.
Some people also sustain this type of injury when they fall, such as a customer who slipped as they entered a supermarket. Unfortunately, some spilt water had not been mopped up and neither were there any warning signs so that customers could avoid the area.
Both these cases would be eligible to claim compensation, but there are other factors that we need to establish.
When did you sustain your whiplash injury in Hamilton?
We will need the exact date and, in some cases, we may also need the time. Some customers, as a result of their accident, have a police report that can be used as part of the case that clearly shows how the accident happened as well as who was at fault.
From whom did you seek medical attention?
For any compensation claim to be successful, you must have received medical treatment for your injury. In the case of a whiplash injury in Hamilton, many clients will receive an x-ray, as well as prescription only analgesics (painkillers). Some people who suffer this injury also finds that it lasts in the longer term and additional help, such as physiotherapy may be required.
And finally, when did your accident happen?
Again, we will need to know the exact date as you have a three year deadline from the date of the accident in which you must make a claim – IF you decide to make one!
The great thing about when you contact Accident Advice Helpline is you are under no obligation what-so-ever to continue with any claim for compensation for any injury. This is because we appreciate that on occasions, people just want information, support and advice.
