Research shows that whiplash claims are near record levels, with claims expected to top 840,000 this year, 9% higher than the record level set in 2013/14. Whiplash is clearly a common injury and while it tends to occur as a result of road traffic accidents, it can actually happen in many other instances as well. If you are suffering from whiplash and believe the incident was not your fault, you should certainly consider a personal injury compensation claim.
Whiplash injury in Sandwich
Whiplash injuries occur when the head jolts back and forward in a violent manner. These injuries range from minor, whereby recovery takes a year or less, to severe, where suffering and pain will continue indefinitely. If you are expected to make a recovery within a year you can expect a payout between £750 and £2500, whereas severe injuries can lead to compensation ranging from £7,750 to £13,750. Please note that these are simply estimates and all cases are different.
