If you’ve had a whiplash injury in Pittenweem, you could claim compensation – but many people aren’t sure what to do if it happens to them.
At Accident Advice Helpline, this concerns us, because there could be many people out there who qualify to claim – but, for whatever reason, haven’t taken the first step.
If this applies to you, read on, because there is some information about what to do!
First of All, Are you Eligible to Claim?
You can probably claim if your whiplash injury in Pittenweem has been caused by someone else, but you can check your eligibility by taking our 30 second test. This is available on our website, and as its name suggests, it won’t take you very long to get your answer!
Secondly, Keep a File
Get organised by gathering up all the records of medical treatment you have undergone as a result of the whiplash injury in Pittenweem and putting them in a file. You should also file away any receipts for expenses incurred as a result of your injury, e.g. taxi fares, childminding fees, home help fees, and prescription charges.
Thirdly, Get an Estimate
If you are eligible to claim, you are probably curious as to how much you will win if your case is successfully settled. We can’t give exact figures, unfortunately; every case is different. But we can give you an estimate. Simply use our free compensation calculator, which is also available on our website – and, like the 30 second test, it is quick and simple to use!

The Process of Claiming for a Whiplash Injury in Pittenweem
When you call, things will proceed as follows:
- Your call will be taken by an advisor
