Are you suffering from a whiplash injury in Mattersey?
A whiplash injury doesn’t necessarily have to be sustained in a car accident; instead, you might sustain a whiplash injury in Mattersey or elsewhere after a slip, trip or fall, or if you received a blow to the head. You could even sustain a whiplash injury in Mattersey if you were practising rifle shooting at the local range, as severe recoil can snap your head and neck backwards and forwards. If you received your whiplash injury in Mattersey as a result of an accident that you can prove was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for it.
How do I file an injury claim?
First of all, you need to find a personal injury lawyer who has experience in dealing with claims arising from the type of accident in which you have been injured. If you were injured in an accident in the street, for example, you would need a personal injury lawyer who was an expert in dealing with claims for injuries sustained in accidents in public places. You may have to contact several firms of lawyers before you find one to represent you.
You would need to arrange an appointment, usually free of charge, to discuss the background to your accident so that the lawyer can assess whether or not you have good grounds upon which to base a personal injury compensation claim. At this first meeting, you need to ask for testimonials from satisfied clients who had similar accidents to yours. While you are speaking with the lawyer, find out if he or she will work for you on a no win no fee basis.
If you are feeling weak after your accident, you may not wish to go to all the trouble of finding a personal injury lawyer, but the sooner you file your claim after the accident, the better. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline, and we will be able to put you in touch with an appropriate personal injury lawyer who is on our team.
