Whether you sustained your whiplash injury in St. Luke’s as the result of a car accident, a slip and fall, a bike accident, or any other situation that someone else caused, you can do something about it – call Accident Advice Helpline and make a compensation claim!
Why claim for whiplash injury in St. Luke’s?
We get asked this question a lot, and our response is: why not claim?
Consider the situation you are in. There you were, minding your own business, doing whatever it was you were doing – and all of a sudden, your whole life was turned upside down.
What’s more, it was someone else’s fault! They drove into your car, failed to warn you about a slippery floor, or failed to maintain a cycle path that was full of potholes.
Yet here you are now, a few weeks later, and you’re suffering. Oh, you’ve recovered, all right – only just! – but you’ve certainly been inconvenienced. You’ve had to take time off work, too, perhaps putting yourself at risk of losing wages. You’ve also had to pay a home help, and possibly a childminder. You’re out of pocket – and it wasn’t your fault!
Doesn’t it make sense, when you look at things this way, to make a claim?

The claims process
Your first point of contact will be one of our team of professional, friendly advisers. They will guide you through the process of making a claim, and answer any questions you might have.
The next step – if you qualify to claim (and if the accident was someone else’s fault, then it’s very likely you will!) – is for one of our team of ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors to deal with the case.
Most claims can be dealt with on behalf of our clients, with no need for them to attend court. For your claim to proceed, you will need to attend an additional medical assessment, but it’s highly unlikely that you will have to experience any additional stress in the form of a court case.
It’s important not to delay
Claims for whiplash injury in St. Luke’s – and, for that matter, any claim (apart from those for industrial diseases) – have a three-year cut-off. That means you must start claiming before three years from the date of the accident have passed.
If you were a minor at the time of the accident, this time limit is extended – but isn’t it always better to start something sooner rather than later, especially if you could be awarded a payout? Call us now and find out more!
