Whiplash Claims

Whiplash is a type of injury concerning the neck, back and shoulders, where an abrupt snapping motion occurs or sudden jerking of the head back and forth. Whiplash is a very common injury sustained after a road traffic accident.

Severity of this type of injury differs with each individual with some experiencing discomfort for several days to those who may be left with long term damage.

Our solicitors could help you in your claim for compensation for whiplash, which in turn may aid in covering the costs of much needed rehabilitation and its impact on your life.

Can You Make A Whiplash Claim?

If you have sustained a whiplash injury as a direct result of a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Contacting us as possible after your accident will help avoid delays in getting your claim started, especially while the details are fresh in your mind. With this first consultation we will be able to answer any query you have and discuss how much compensation you might be able to claim.

How much and how Long Does A Whiplash Claim Take?

On average, it can take several months for a whiplash claim to settle, however it does vary on a case by case basis as to how long it will take. This is dependent on factors such as

  • Whether it was a “hit and run” event and the third party cannot be located
  • Severity of injury sustained
  • If there is a claim for financial losses such as loss of earnings
  • Liability admitted on opposition

The amount one can be awarded differs on the injury itself and how severe this is, as well as how this has gone on to affect day to day life.
