So, you have sustained a whiplash injury in Sandtoft? Hopefully, you’ll make a quick recovery and get back to your best in no time, but either way, one thing you should be thinking about is making a claim for personal injury compensation. You may have thought about this, but you may be feeling a bit confused as to whether you have the basis for a claim. Don’t panic, as we have the answers you need below.
Should I claim for a whiplash injury in Sandtoft?
Of course, we all want to get a payout, yet, at the same time; you don’t want to waste your time if your case isn’t strong enough. To determine whether you should make a claim for a whiplash injury in Sandtoft, you need to ask yourself the following three questions:
- Who caused the accident? If you want to have any chance of securing compensation, you need to prove that someone else is responsible for your whiplash injury. A lot of whiplash injuries occur due to car crashes, so you will need to show that someone else has caused the crash if this is indeed what has occurred.
- When did the accident occur? This is imperative because there is a three-year time limit on all personal injury cases. This means you have three years from the date of the accident and court proceedings must be issued within this period.
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries? You must have seen a medical professional for your injuries if you want to have any chance of making a claim. This is imperative; as it’s the only way you are going to prove your suffering.
