    Whiplash injury in Queens Gate


    A whiplash injury in Queens Gate could mean compensation for you

    Road traffic accidents are among the most common types of accidents we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline HQ, and within that whiplash injuries are the most common injuries. Therefore, if you’ve suffered a whiplash injury in Queens Gate, this article will contain all the information you need to know before you decide whether or not you want to launch a legal claim.

    About whiplash

    If you’ve been involved in an accident, then there is a great danger of whiplash. This occurs when your neck is given an extremely sharp jolt which damages it. Although the effects can be cured over time, it is difficult to live with and can cause a number of problems.

    When you can claim

    If you’re wondering whether to claim after suffering a whiplash injury in Queens Gate try assessing your case against this checklist.

    1. Was the accident your fault? You can only claim if you weren’t to blame for the accident.
    2. Was it someone else’s fault? If it was not your fault it implies that you believe it was someone else’s fault. However, in order to claim you will have to demonstrate this to the full satisfaction of the court. Doing this can sometimes be easier said than done.
    3. How badly were you hurt? Compensation is not there for minor injuries. You can only claim if you can show that the accident has had a negative effect on your quality of life.
    4. When did the accident happen? There is a three year time limit on claiming compensation. That might not sound like much but you’ll be surprised at how quickly the time can slip by.

    Proving your case

    When you launch your case it’s important to know if you can prove it. There’s no guarantee that a case will go to court, but if it does you’ll have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are in the right. If you can’t provide proof then the other side will receive the benefit of the doubt.

    At Accident Advice Helpline we’ll only offer to take on your case if we sincerely believe you have a good chance of winning. Even so there is no such thing as a guarantee in personal injury law which is why we work on the basis of no win no fee. If we can’t help you to win your case you won’t owe us a single penny.
