Can I make a claim?
Apart from being able to prove that you were not in any way to blame for your accident, you also need to have sought immediate medical treatment after it. Your medical record will be used to calculate the amount of compensation you receive for your discomfort and distress. The more severe your injuries, the more you can expect to receive in compensation for them. You can also receive compensation for loss of earnings, medical expenses and so on, as compensation is granted so that you are not worse off financially than you were before your accident.
Usually you have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the UK to make your claim. However, some accidents (and so the injuries arising from them) have shorter limitation periods. You may not have as long as you think to file your claim for a whiplash injury in South Cerney. Contact us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out just how long you have left to claim.
If you were injured in a road traffic accident, the police should have been called and when they have investigated the accident and discovered its causes, they will issue an accident report. This is necessary if you are to make a claim.
