If you’ve been involved in an accident that was caused by someone else, and you sustained whiplash as a result, did you know that you could claim compensation?
To do this, you need the services of a no win no fee personal injury law firm whose solicitors deal with claims on behalf of clients, with the aim of securing whiplash injury payments.
Qualifying to claim compensation
You usually qualify to claim compensation if the accident in which you were involved was caused by someone else, and you were injured as a result. There is an easy way to check your eligibility, which is to take the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test. This is available on our website, and all you need to do is input a few details.
How much, typically, are whiplash injury payments worth?
Unfortunately, we cannot tell you the exact value of a whiplash claim. Every case differs, so the amounts paid out to claimants also differ.
But, we have another useful tool on our website for you to use: our free compensation calculator! This will give you an estimate of what you might receive if your claim is successful.
How to get started with a claim
It’s easy to begin your claim, because Accident Advice Helpline has a 24/7 hotline that is fully staffed by professional, friendly advisors. All you need to do is pick up the phone or, alternatively, send us a text:
- Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline;
- Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile; or
- Text “claim365” to 88010.
Once you call us, an advisor will guide you through the process of claiming and answer any questions about the process that you might have.
If you qualify, your details will be passed to one of our team of no win no fee solicitors. It is their job to pursue claims on our clients’ behalf, with the aim of securing whiplash injury payments.
Other information about claiming
Many people wonder whether they will have to attend court as part of the claiming process. This is highly unlikely, as most claims can be settled entirely by phone with no need for you to go to court.
You may, however, need to attend an additional medical assessment for the claim to proceed.
Whiplash injury payments are made up of an element for the injury itself and an element for the reimbursement of expenses that have been incurred as a result of the injury. For this reason, it is a good idea to keep a record of your medical treatments, as well as any receipts for expenses such as home help fees, taxi fares, and prescription charges.
