Do you have whiplash?

When you have an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences of someone else’s negligence, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help.

Whiplash is caused by sudden acceleration and deceleration. Typically, this happens when a jolt makes your head and neck move forward and backward rapidly – such as an impact to the rear of your vehicle. This type of rear-shunt accident can damage bone structures and soft tissues, causing pain, swelling, stiffness, dizziness, nausea, headache, fatigue and blurred vision.

Whiplash injuries vary in severity. Some people recover fully within a week or two. But whiplash isn’t always minor. If you’re unlucky enough to suffer chronic whiplash, you might experience pain and other symptoms for months after your accident. This may limit mobility, affect your ability to drive or work, and require treatment. If you think you may be suffering from whiplash, the first step is to visit your GP to have the injury diagnosed and to get pain relief.

Why make whiplash claims?

With a whiplash injury, you may not be able to work – and this might put you under pressure financially. We can help you get the compensation you need: to compensate you for pain and suffering, to cover lost earnings, to meet the costs of travelling to and from hospital, and to pay for medical appointments and accommodation, for example.

Our 30-second test™ can help you understand how much compensation you could receive for successful whiplash claims. In addition, you may also be able to claim for loss of earnings and additional expenses. As with any personal injury claim, when claiming whiplash, the amount you could receive depends upon your personal circumstances, and will depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • The severity of your whiplash
  • The treatment you need after your accident
  • The amount of time (if any) you take off work
  • How your injury makes an impact on your life
  • The outlook for recovering from your injuries

For any type of accident that causes whiplash – a road accident, trip or fall – we can help. Just call us on 0800 689 5659.

Can you make a claim for whiplash?

You could be able to claim if you can answer ‘yes’ to the following:

  • Was your accident somebody else’s fault?
  • Did your accident happen in the last three years?

The quickest way to find out whether you can claim is to call us on 0800 689 5659. Our friendly legal advisors can answer all your questions, and help you get the compensation you’re due.
