If you’ve sustained a whiplash injury in Stoney Cross, you might have realised that you could make a claim for compensation. But how would you go about it?
Accident Advice Helpline have 15 years of experience in the field of personal injury claims. Below, we set out the things that you should consider if you have suffered whiplash and are thinking about claiming.
Your eligibility to claim
Normally, if you have been involved in an accident that was caused by someone else, either through deliberate action or negligence, and you suffered injury as a result, then you could make a claim.
This applies to a whiplash injury in Stoney Cross, whether it is a result of a car accident, a slip and fall, or any kind of blow to the head. People are often unaware that whiplash can be caused by things other than road traffic accidents, and it is important to realise this.
You can check your eligibility by taking the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test, which is available on our website. Simply enter the few bits of information for which it asks, and you’ll receive your answer.
Evidence related to your whiplash injury in Stoney Cross
If you wish to make a claim, evidence will help your no win no fee solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline to have the best chance of securing you the sum of money that you deserve.
Compensation is for the injury itself, but it is also to reimburse you for any expenses that you have incurred as a result of your injury. For this reason, you should keep hold of your receipts for expenses such as taxi fares, home help fees and prescription charges – in fact, anything that may be related to your injury.
It is also a good idea to keep records of your medical treatment, as well as photographic evidence of your injury. Why not start a file and keep everything in one place?
