Have you sustained a whiplash injury in South Bank, London? If you have, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim.There are several things you need to prove if you are to be eligible to make a claim for that whiplash injury in South Bank, and the most important is that you must be able to prove that the accident was not your fault and that another person was responsible for it. You may well need an experienced accident lawyer to help you, but that’s not a problem as we at Accident Advice Helpline can introduce you to a suitable one.
What documentation do I need to claim?
Firstly you will need your medical report. This will detail the extent and severity of your injuries and will be used to calculate a part of the compensation you would receive if your claim were successful. You should have had immediate medical treatment for your injuries.
If you sustained your whiplash injury in South Bank in a road traffic accident, and it involved one or more motorised vehicles, the police should have been called to the scene of the accident. They have to investigate the causes of such accidents. They will appeal for witnesses, and on completion of their investigation, they will write an accident report. This will also be needed as supporting evidence for your claim for your whiplash injury in South Bank.
Because the British government have clamped down in fraudulent whiplash injury claims, you may be asked to undergo a further medical examination to ensure that yours is a genuine case of whiplash.
How long do I have to claim?
Usually if your accident (and injury) occurred in the UK, you have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. This is not always the case, however, and there are some accidents and their injuries which carry a shorter limitation period. If you don’t know how long you have left to file your particular claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. You wouldn’t want to miss your chance to claim compensation, would you?
