What do you know about whiplash injury payouts? Despite the high exposure of personal injury law firms in the media, there are still many people who don’t realise that a claim for compensation can be made in cases where the whiplash has been caused by someone else.
It doesn’t matter what caused it
What caused the injury – a car crash, a sporting injury, or a slip and fall – is not important. What does matter is who caused it. If someone else’s negligence or deliberate behaviour caused your whiplash injury, you could make a claim.
Making a claim means that you could receive a sum of money for the injury. Whiplash injury payouts such as this will also include an element for the reimbursement of any expenditure that has been incurred as a result of the accident.
Claiming for whiplash injury payouts
The actual process of making a claim is easier than you might perhaps realise – especially when you choose Accident Advice Helpline, a renowned personal injury law firm with 14 years’ experience of securing whiplash injury payouts.
You can be assured of receiving the best possible service from our advisers. They will treat you with empathy and sensitivity, and take your details in confidence.
What happens next?
If you qualify to claim compensation, your adviser will pass your details to one of our team of no win, no fee solicitors. No win, no fee means that if you are not successful in claiming compensation, you will not need to pay our solicitors’ fees.
Our solicitors pursue claims on behalf of clients, dealing with insurance companies and other agencies involved. Their aim is to secure payouts for clients, and they will do their professional best to get clients the compensation they deserve.
Since whiplash injury payouts consist of money for the injury and money for expenses, it is a good idea for clients to keep records of medical treatment that they have undergone in relation to their injuries, and to hold on to receipts for expenses.
If you’re wondering what qualifies as an expense, here are some examples:
- Home help fees
- Childminding fees
- Prescription charges
- Public transport fares
If in doubt, keep the receipt. Why not start a file for all the documentation that relates to your case? That way, you will have everything in one place for quick reference. This will help you – and it will be useful to your solicitor.
We hope that we have shed some light on the process of making a claim, but for more information, call Accident Advice Helpline now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. Our lines are open 24/7.
