How to find out more about claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Putney
When you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Putney personal injury compensation can be important in helping you to get your life back on track. However, many people don’t even make a claim. Why is this? We’re here to give you the details you need.
Knowing when to claim
The problem is that many people never even consider personal injury compensation as an option which is a shame. They often feel as if their injuries are not severe enough to warrant compensation and whiplash is one of the injuries which is most often open to misunderstanding. Although extremely painful many people see whiplash as being something that is not all that serious and will fully heal in time. As such they don’t press ahead with a claim.
However, a whiplash injury in Putney can lead to a number of problems. You may need physiotherapy which can cost money while you may also see your ability to earn reduced. We also think that in those instances of non-fault accidents you should also receive a payout to compensate for the physical or mental effects of the injury.
What we do
At Accident Advice Helpline we often receive phone calls from people who have suffered whiplash injuries. With each case we need to know whether or not there is a realistic chance of success before we take the case on.
We often do this by suggesting a follow up medical assessment. Whiplash is an injury often used by fraudsters to make a claim so you’ll need independent medical verification of any injuries. However, a single medical assessment can miss things which is why we often suggest doing one ourselves. This means you’ll have as much information at your fingertips as possible to help you make a decision about whether or not you want to claim.
