    Whiplash loss of earnings


    Is your non fault whiplash loss of earnings causing you stress?

    If you have sustained a whiplash injury as the result of an accident which was not your fault, there are many reasons that you may want to claim compensation for your injuries. It’s not just the pain and suffering for your injury but the whiplash loss of earnings and other expenses you’re experiencing.

    For a start, you may be out of action for some time whilst your body heals from your whiplash injury, and during this time you may find it difficult to pay for medical bills, or cover any money you are missing due to lost wages.

    Another thing that a whiplash claim can help with is your emotions as you come to terms with the accident and what it has cost you mentally. A whiplash injury claim is no match for dedicated therapy and treatment, but it can offer you what you need to get this treatment so that you can recover in a shorter space of time.

    You can call the helpline on: 0800 689 0500 to get advice and support with your injury claim, and make a start as soon as you are comfortable with the process.

    What can you claim for?

    When making a whiplash injury claim, you should know all of the things you are claiming back for so that you know a rough amount you are willing to settle for. This will make the claims process quicker and easier for you, and more straightforward for your lawyer. You could claim for:

    • Emotional distress caused by the accident
    • The effect the injury has had on your life and will continue to have as time goes on
    • Money you have spent on treatment and therapy
    • Hospital visits and travel expenses
    • Help around the home while you are recovering
    • Household costs

    Make sure that you have receipts for any money you are trying to claim back or these may not be considered legitimate expenses.

    How can you provide evidence?

    Your claim will only be considered legitimate if you can provide proof of both your accident and the injury you suffered. This is why one of the first things you should do is see a doctor and ask for a medical assessment which proves what your injuries are, how it is likely that they were sustained and how long it is likely to take for you to recover.

    A police report from the scene will help you to prove your part in the accident.
