The checklist for anyone making a compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Kent
- Go and see the doctor – The first thing you have to do if you have experienced a whiplash injury in Kent is go and see a medical professional. This is something a lot of people do not do. Why? Well, not everyone likes going to the hospital, do they? So, if they believe they can cope with the injury themselves, they will. This is not advised for medical reasons, but it will also destroy your chances of making a successful compensation claim, as there will be no proof of your injuries.
- Make details of the accident – After you have seen the doctor, it is advisable to sit down and make a note of everything that happened. The whiplash injury in Kent will still be fresh in your mind so you can refer to the details later down the line when necessary. After all, it can be easy to forget things.
- Get in touch with a quality solicitor – The next thing you need to do is make sure you get in touch with a high quality solicitor who can handle your claim for you. At Accident Advice Helpline, all of our solicitors are experienced and work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. Simply ring us today and we will match you to the best one for your case.

- Keep proof of any expenses encountered – Last but not least, you will be able to claim for any expenses you have encountered as a result of the whiplash injury in Kent. However, you will need to keep proof of these costs if you are to successfully claim for them. This includes anything from travel expenses, to medical costs, to accommodation expenses, to childcare costs, and more. In fact, did you know that you will also be able to claim for loss of income as well?
