Five Things About Making a Compensation Claim for a Whiplash Injury in Kirkby Stephen
- You need to see a doctor – This may sound obvious to some of you. After all, if you sustained a whiplash injury in Kirkby Stephen you would want to see a doctor to get the right treatment. However, some people hate hospitals, and if they have only experienced a minor injury they would rather cope with it themselves. But, if you don’t see a doctor you will not be able to claim, as there will be no proof of your injuries.
- You have a time limit – Many people do not know that there is a three-year time limit on most personal injury cases. Thus, if you have experienced a whiplash injury in Kirkby Stephen it is important to make a compensation claim as soon as possible, especially as court proceedings need to be issued within this three-year period.
- You won’t necessarily have to go to court – A lot of people worry about making a personal injury claim because they fear that they are going to have to go through the hassle of going to court. Whilst this could occur, it is highly unlikely, as only fewer than three per cent of personal injury cases go to trial in the end.
- You can claim for special damages – You will not only be compensated for the suffering you have experienced, but you will also be able to claim for the expenses you have encountered because of the whiplash injury in Kirkby Stephen you have suffered.This includes the likes of medical costs, childcare expenses, and loss of income.
