Whiplash can be a very painful injury that can take months to recover from and sometimes victims are left with permanent weaknesses in their neck and back. Although a mild case might clear in just a few weeks to heal, chronic whiplash can take a very long time and sometimes leads to secondary complaints such as chronic pain syndrome. If this happens, the victim will be in pain every day for the rest of their life.
Victims often ask how much they will be awarded for a whiplash injury, but the severity can vary so much it is impossible to give a definite figure. Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test will give you an estimate, but that is all it can ever be because victims circumstances vary so much and are taken into account when making a no win, no fee* in Banham claim.
No win no fee* in Banham
Not really, because the affect it has had on your life is more important than how it happened. Just some of the questions a lawyer may ask though are:
- Was someone else other than you to blame for the accident?
- Did the accident happen within the last three years?
- Did you have to seek medical treatment for your injury?
- The severity of whiplash is not always immediately apparent and can get worse over time, are you likely to have ongoing problems?
- Have you had to lose time from work?
- Have you had extra costs because of the accident?
The answers to these questions would form the basis of your claim and a lawyer would want to examine every area to make sure they maximise the amount of compensation you receive.
Who will settle your no win no fee* in Banham claim?
That depends on how you sustained you whiplash injury. Although a rear end shunt in a car is the most common way, it is not the only way by far. Other ways you could sustain a whiplash injury are:
- Falling over and banging your head
- Playing contact sports such as wrestling or rugby
- A heavy object knocking your head
- Falling off something such as a cycle or horse
In fact, any accident that causes a sudden jolt to your head, damaging the nerves and tendons in your neck has caused a whiplash injury. If that accident was not your own fault, you should be contacting Accident Advice Helpline about making a personal injury claim.
