Claiming compensation for personal injury, including for a whiplash injury in Lennoxtown, explained…
Let’s be honest, until you were hurt you had no intention of claiming compensation. You may have read some of the negative reviews of ‘claiming compo’ in the media; you probably thought, ‘I’d never do that’, although there was a sting of jealousy, maybe, when you heard so-and-so had claimed for their personal injury.
You probably never thought you would claim for a whiplash injury in Lennoxtown…
…until now. So what’s changed? Here at AAH, we think we know:
THE ACCIDENT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT
In law, in order to be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation for any injury, including a whiplash injury in Lennoxtown, the accident or incident in which it was caused must have been as a result of someone else’s actions, negligent or otherwise.
This type of injury is commonly associated with car accidents, but it can be caused in all kinds of different ways – it is sustained when the neck and head is snapped forward and backward in quick, and violent succession.
It is incredibly painful; for a very small minority of people, they can be paralysed by whiplash. For others, it is a painful inconvenience that can last for weeks.
Who caused your accident? Call AAH on 0800 689 0500 to tell us all about it.
YOU HAVE RECEIVED OR ARE RECEIVING MEDICAL ADVICE & TREATMENT
Again, you thought that whiplash was something that came and went within a few days but now you have suffered the injury, you realise this is not always the case.
For example, you have discovered how painful and uncomfortable a whiplash injury in Lennoxtown actually is; you cannot sleep as you cannot get the right support for your neck. It is difficult to stand or even sit.
You need medication from your doctor. And, because for some people it goes on and on and on, they may also need to have physiotherapy to ease the pain and inflammation in the neck.

IT HAPPENED RECENTLY
And finally, it happened a short time ago but within the last 3 years and you have decided that because it is causing you such problems, and you were not the one that caused the accident that you want to claim compensation. After all, you may be off work or having to work part time; it’s affecting you financially too…
