    Whiplash injury in Lifton

    Essential ‘must-know’ facts about claiming compensation for your whiplash injury in Lifton…

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we love facts – but more than that, we enjoy correcting the myths and false statement that people make about claiming compensation. Read on to see some of the most common myths, debunked…

    • Being able to claim compensation in the UK is a relatively ‘new thing’

    Personal injury law in the UK has been around for some time but what has changed is that specialist law firms, like Accident Advice Helpline, have been telling people that they have rights in cases where they have been hurt, as a result of an accident that was not their fault.

    Personal injury law clearly states that you are entitled to claim compensation if you have suffered a physical and/or emotional injury as a result of someone else’s negligence or actions.

    • Claiming compensation is getting out of hand

    Many people – negative press as well as insurance companies being just two examples – believe that the compensation culture in the UK is getting out of hand. Only this year (in 2014), insurers were telling drivers that claims for whiplash were adding £90 on to each policy.

    However, if people were more careful and followed the rules of the road, maybe there would not be so many accidents that cause whiplash injury in Lifton – hence there would be less claims for compensation.

    • Whiplash is not a severe enough injury to warrant compensation

    In some cases, this is true and not all people go on to claim compensation for their whiplash injury in Lifton. However, there will be a percentage of people who suffer this injury who will go on to have significant difficulties with their neck, shoulders and spine in the future.

    Not all whiplash injuries are ‘fixed’ quickly; a very small minority can actually suffer paralysis from this kind of injury, as it essentially affects the spine, ligaments and muscles.
