Compensation for a whiplash injury in Rosebank
To claim compensation for a whiplash injury in Rosebank, your situation has to fit the same rules as for all other personal injury claims:
- You must have been in an accident that was the fault of someone else. It does not matter if they were negligent, or acting carelessly or recklessly. It could be a road traffic accident, and accident at work, an accident in a public place or any other type of accident, as long as you were not to blame.
- You must have been injured in the accident. Compensation is paid for personal injury, whether that is to your body or your mind. A successful personal injury claim means you may also be able to claim any costs and losses that are accident related.
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention. They do not have to be really serious, just bad enough for you to have seen a doctor with them. A medical report from whoever treated you will be needed.
- For most claims the accident should have happened within the last three years. There are some exceptions to this rule though and if you are uncertain about the accident you have been in, speak to the advisors at Accident Advice Helpline today.
