Have you had a whiplash injury in Sindelsham? Why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you have reasonable grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim for it.
Can I claim for my whiplash injury in Sindelsham?
If you can prove that the accident in which you sustained your whiplash injury in Sindelsham was not your fault, then you could be eligible to make a claim. You and your personal injury lawyer would also have to prove that your whiplash injury in Sindelsham was sustained in an accident for which another person was solely responsible, as there must be someone to make a claim against.
You should have received medical attention immediately after your accident as your medical report will be necessary in order to calculate the amount of compensation you may be awarded for the pain distress and suffering caused by your injury.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If your accident happened in the UK you would usually have three years from its date to make your claim, but this is not guaranteed, as some accidents have much shorter limitation periods; for some accidents and injuries, you must claim within nine months of the date of the accident or miss out on the opportunity to submit a claim. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how much longer you have left to file your potential personal injury compensation claim.
Claiming compensation for an illness
Did you know that you can make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness if you can prove that it was the result of another person’s negligence? For example if you have food poisoning after eating out, you may be able to make a claim against the owner of the restaurant because your illness was caused by the negligence of the kitchen staff if food was not correctly prepared or cooked.
You may also be able to make a claim against your employer if you have been told by your doctor that you have a work-related illness or an occupational disease.
You have three years from the date of your first diagnosis to make your personal injury compensation claim, but the sooner you start the claims process the better, as sometimes, if the case cannot be settled out of court, you may have to wait years before any compensation is awarded, and even then, it may not be. You need an expert personal injury lawyer to represent you and we at Accident Advice Helpline can probably put you in touch with one of our experts all of whom work on a no-win, no fee* basis.
