What every case for compensation for a whiplash injury in Leyland needs…
Every case must meet the criteria as laid down in personal injury law. Like most laws, the boundaries are set, so if your case falls short, you won’t be able to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Leyland with Accident Advice Helpline.
And so, what does you case need in order to be in with a chance of success?
You need to show HOW you were injured and what treatment you received
The whole point of claiming compensation is to have some form of financial redress for your injury or injuries. Some people suffer severe whiplash injury in Leyland, whilst others, thankfully, suffer from a light form of the injury, meaning they will soon recover.
However, even the ‘lightest’ of whiplash injuries can be excruciatingly painful and will need treatment for a medical professional. It is common for people who have suffered this kind of injury to need prescription only painkillers, and possibly anti-inflammatories too.
With prescription charges at £8.05 per item in England, two medications will have aleady cost you £16.10. How about if this happens every two weeks? That’s £32.10 a fortnight, £64.40 a month. Did you plan on spending nearly £65 a month on prescription medication?
You need to show that you were not responsible for the accident or incident that resulted in a whiplash injury in Leyland
This is because the underlying aspect of personal injury law is that anyone hurt as the result of someone’s actions (or lack of!), is entitled to claim compensation.
It may be that this is clear cut – for example, someone driving in to the rear of your vehicle or being knocked from your bike – in other cases it may not be BUT, if you have a case, Accident Advice Helpline will fight your corner!
You are making a claim within 3 years of the accident
This deadline applies to the majority of cases, and certainly those for a whiplash injury in Leyland. However, it is applied differently to cases involving children and those people claiming for an industrial disease.
