If you’re injured in an accident, you want to know that there is someone with the right skills and experience who can help you out. The trouble is, that in a small place such as Prestbury you may not always have that many people who have the skills you need. This is particularly important as making a claim depends massively on the type of accident you have suffered. In this article, therefore, we’re going to look at how you can go about making a claim for whiplash in Prestbury.
Claims for whiplash in Prestbury
Of all the types of personal injury claims we have coming through our doors at Accident Advice Helpline, whiplash is perhaps the most common. It occurs when a sudden or violent motion – normally caused by a collision in a car – exerts an abnormal amount of strain on the spine. The effects can be anything from mild to severe, but if you have whiplash then the one thing you shouldn’t do is suffer in silence. It may not be life threatening, but it is still likely to have a negative impact on your quality of life and as such it means you’ll deserve a measure of compensation.
How compensation is calculated
There is a very simple way to measure how much compensation – if any – you should be entitled to. We start by looking at whether or not the accident was your fault. We then look at how much it has cost you in terms of lost earnings or medical expenses. Finally we come up with a figure for the injury itself. Naturally the more severe the injury the more money you will be entitled to.
