    Whiplash injury in Hastings and St Leonards

    What to do if you have sustained a whiplash injury in Hastings and St Leonards

    If you have suffered a whiplash injury in Hastings and St Leonards there are steps you need to take to ensure you not only get better, but also get the full amount of compensation you are entitled to if the injury was not your fault. Nonetheless, if you have no experience in personal injuries it can be quite difficult to know how to go about this. Thus, read on to discover everything you must know…

    The first thing you need to do is make sure you get the contact details of everyone that witnessed the whiplash injury in Hastings and St Leonards. You need to get the details of the persona who caused the accident, yet you also need to make sure you get information from all of the witnesses as well. Their statements could prove to be pivotal.

    Once you have done this the next thing you need to do is go and see a doctor. In most instances whiplash is a minor injury and people recover within a few weeks or months. Nonetheless, this is not always the case and it is definitely better to be safe rather than sorry. So, go and see a doctor to get the proper treatment. Moreover, if you do not see a medical professional there will be no proof of your injuries and consequently you will struggle to make a claim.

    After you have seen a doctor you then need to find a good solicitor. In this instance all you have to do is call Accident Advice Helpline. We are one of the leading law firms in the UK. We have a wealth of experience, having been established in 2000. All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis. You simply need to dial our free legal helpline and an advisor will answer all of your queries and match you to the best specialist solicitor for your case specifically.

    Last but not least, do not forget to keep any documents that are relevant to the whiplash injury in Hastings and St Leonards. This includes proof of any costs you have encountered because of the injury – such as medical expenses and travel costs. You will be able to claim for these as special damages.
