Whiplash Injury in Snettisham

0

If you live in Snettisham in Norfolk, you may be thinking about the possibility of making a personal injury compensation claim for a whiplash injury. You may be a little confused about how to go about doing this, and perhaps you believe that because of the changes the British government made in 2014 that you can no longer claim for a whiplash injury in Snettisham or elsewhere. However, the government were only cracking down on fraudulent claims for whiplash injury, so if you have a genuine case, then you can make a claim for your whiplash injury in Snettisham. You may be asked to undergo a second medical examination to ensure that yours is a genuine case, however.

How can I make a claim for my whiplash injury in Snettisham?

First of all, why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline for help and advice? You can discuss the grounds you have for believing that you have a genuine claim to make with one of our specialist advisers. He or she will then be able to tell you if you have grounds on which to base a claim for your whiplash injury in Snettisham.

What criteria are there for making claims?

To begin with, you must be able to prove (with the help of your personal injury lawyer) that you were not to blame for the accident in which you sustained your injury. You must also prove that another person was to blame for your accident. You might think this is obvious, but if, for example, you were driving and swerved to avoid a wild rabbit and then crashed into a tree and suffered a whiplash injury in Snettisham, you would not be eligible to make a claim as there would be no one to file the claim against.

Immediately after your accident you should have sought medical treatment for your injury, although in the case of a whiplash injury, the symptoms may be delayed for up to 48 hours. However, after an accident you may be in shock and so need medical treatment, or you may have received other injuries which needed medical attention. Your medical report is required if you go on to make a claim, as it details the extent of your injuries and it is this document which informs decisions regarding the amount of compensation you could be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused by them.

The accident in which you sustained your injuries must have occurred in the last three years. There are some accidents which carry a shorter limitation period however, so you should check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have left to file your potential claim. The sooner you begin the claims’ process after your accident the better.
