Making a claim for compensation for a whiplash injury in Leytonstone & Wanstead – where do you stand?

Hopefully, you will never know the pain and suffering whiplash can cause but if you are reading this, the chances are that you are either thinking of claiming compensation as you are hurt yourself, or someone close to you is.

Not everyone who can claim compensation, does so – why?

It is thought that as many as 1 in 4 people have suffered some kind of personal injury through an accident or a work related incident and yet, of these people, only a relatively small minority will claim compensation – despite them being perfectly entitled to do so (YouGov figures, 2012)

Hence, every years, millions of pounds in compensation is being left unclaimed, and that could mean you are missing out on compensation for your whiplash injury in Leytonstone & Wanstead.

The majority of compensation claims are for (by accident type):

  • 50% are for road traffic accidents, a common cause of whiplash injury in Leytonstone & Wanstead
  • 21% claimed for accidents in public places, such as shops, roads etc
  • 16% of claims were from people hurt in the work place

But are claims for compensation getting out of hand?

Insurers want the public to believe that they are, hence they release statistics that say that for every claim for whiplash compensation, £90 is added to premiums for car insurance.

However, the public do recognise that without help such as the no win, no fee* agreements that law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline have in place, many people who are entitled to compensation would not be able to claim.

So, why aren’t some people claiming for a whiplash injury in Leytonstone & Wanstead?

The main reason seemed to be was that some potential claimants didn’t think their injury was ‘bad enough’ but, as we know here at Accident Advice Helpline, it is always wise to seek medical advice first as whiplash has a habit of being ‘hidden’.

The second most popular reason for not claiming compensation was the direct result of the negative press regarding bogus claims. Many people thought that others would see them as trying to ‘pull a fast one’ and that their injury did not justify financial compensation.
