    Whiplash injury in Puttenham

    A whiplash injury in Puttenham could mean compensation for you

    If you’ve been involved in an accident which you believe was not your fault, it’s almost always a good idea to look into your legal rights. However, making a claim can be a complicated business which is why, if you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Puttenham, it’s a good idea to find out what making a claim entails.

    Life after a whiplash injury in Puttenham

    The first thing you need is information. One of the more reliable places you can go is our website at This gives you a wealth of information about the basics of personal injury law and is a great place for you to build up your own levels of knowledge before you get around to speaking to an expert.

    Put simply, your case will have to satisfy certain criteria in order to qualify for compensation.

    • The accident must not have been your fault
    • It must have happened within the last three years
    • The injuries must be bad enough to require medical attention
    • You must be able to show that it was someone else’s fault

    With most of the cases that come through our doors featuring whiplash the turnaround can be quite quick and indeed most insurance firms don’t even contest the case in court. This is because they come to a determination that they believe they are unlikely to win any case. To avoid any further damage, therefore, they will seek to settle out of court.
    Even so this does not mean the process will be plain sailing. In most cases that initial settlement offer will be significantly lower than you could have received if you press ahead with a case. That’s because they have a vested interest in reducing the payout as much as possible. They are likely to start with a very low offer.

    Getting advice

    This is why it’s always so important to seek advice from a law firm. They will be able to tell you whether or not the offer is realistic and if not provide advice about how much you should press for.
