Whiplash is one of the most common injuries in the UK and it’s also one of the injuries that people know least about judging by the number of people who ask us how they can make a claim for a whiplash injury in North Lincolnshire.
Among personal injury claimants, questions like this are not unusual as claiming for the first time is full of confusion and queries, which is unsurprising really considering the distress that some accidents can cause.
A lot of people are so reliant on their jobs, for instance, that being signed off because of an injury can have disastrous consequences financially; so now consider how bad it can make you feel when the accident wasn’t even your fault.
Everyone can now make a claim if they’re entitled to do so
Fortunately changes in the regulations around personal injury claims, for injuries including whiplash, have meant that people don’t have to worry about the cost of personal injury lawyers anymore, and they can even reclaim any earnings that they may have lost as part of the settlement.
At Accident Advice Helpline we have a team of experienced personal injury lawyers who all work on a 100% no-win no-fee* basis. This means that we don’t charge potential claimants a single penny upfront for legal representation, or for the advice that we provide before and during your claim.
The only money that we do take is as a result of a successful claim and even this “success fee” is capped at 25% of whatever you receive.
Whiplash injury in North Lincolnshire?
So how do you make a claim for a whiplash injury in North Lincolnshire? The easiest way of answering is through an example.
If you imagine a road traffic accident where one vehicle is hit from behind by another, the driver’s head may be thrown forwards to such an extent that the muscles and tendons in the neck and shoulders are over-stretched and damaged.
It’s a bit like using a whip – hence the expression – and it can take several weeks or even months to go away completely. It is also common for symptoms to take several hours to present themselves.
If this has happened to you, call us and let us make a claim for you.
Starting a claim for compensation
With the stress of the accident and injury enough for most people to do with, we want to ensure that the claims process is as simple as it can be.
For that reason we’ve created an online test that enables potential claimants to find out in just 30-seconds if you might be eligible to make a claim. All you have to do is answer a few simple questions about the circumstances of the accident.
If you are eligible to claim, and wish to do so, then we will assign you with your own personal injury solicitor who will contact you to gather as much information as possible about the accident and how it has affected you to build the best case on your behalf, and in order to establish the minimum and maximum potential value of your claim.
Should you have any questions at any point in the process, then you shouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give us a call. Our team of friendly personal injury solicitors are here to help, so just dial 0800 689 0500 from your landline or 0333 500 0992 from a mobile and we’ll help to put your mind at rest.
