How much can I get for my injury?
There is no way that anyone can tell you exactly how much you might receive in compensation for your injury. That’s because many different factors are involved in calculating compensation amounts. However, you could take the 30-Second Test which you will find on our main pages, and get a rough estimate.
For the actual pain, distress and suffering caused by your whiplash injury, you could expect to receive between £1,705 and £3,520 for a minor whiplash injury from which you are expected to recover from within a year. If your injury is more serious, but you are expected to be fully recovered within two years, you could receive between £3,520 and £6,380. If your injury is one that you may never fully recover from, then you would receive more compensation.
You can also make a claim for any expenses you have incurred because of your injury, and for loss of amenity if you can no longer do an activity you enjoyed doing before your accident. If you have had to have time off work, you can claim for loss of earnings too. Compensation is designed so that you are not financially worse off than you were before your accident.
