whiplash injury claims
If you have suffered whiplash or are experiencing neck and upper body pain following a car crash the results can be particularly debilitating. This pain can have a significant impact on your day-to-day life and in some cases the effects can be long-lasting. The whiplash injury itself will be causing you pain and suffering but it can also place limitations on your lifestyle. In addition, you may also be suffering from a loss of income which can add further strain to your situation. It may be the case that your vehicle is out of action too and this may cost you further financial loss. We can arrange for your vehicle to be repaired and place you in a hire vehicle if necessary with no cost to you and no excess to pay.
Our specialist whiplash injury accident solicitors can help you with everything, from claiming for your personal injury and your losses, such as loss of earnings and travel expenses, to arranging private medical treatment and rehabilitation to assist in your recovery and get your life back on track. Pursuing compensation for your whiplash injury is not something you have to do on your own, you need specialist advice. Trust us to help you.
Warning - DO NOT claim through your insurance company if you have a road accident.
Your insurance company may "sell" your case on to one of the large factory law firms, usually the highest bidder and worst performer (they have to pay for your case as they can't get work any other way). This is why you are bombarded with calls from lawyers as soon as you report your accident to your insurers. For a much better service contact a specialist accident claims solicitor of your own choice.
About whiplash injury claims
A whiplash injury is often the result of rear end collision or a side impact collision in a car. Although not serious a whiplash injury can be very painful and affect your life for up to 18 months. People can suffer from a whiplash injury even if they have been involved in low speed accidents. This is because your body is thrown forward and backwards quickly creating a whiplash type motion. People feel aching and stiffness in their neck, back and shoulders and can also experience travel anxiety about the collision.
Put simply, in a car accident, whiplash occurs when a person moves their neck suddenly forwards and backwards in a movement that the body is not used to. The unusual force causes a strain injury in that part of the body which results in pain. In many cases the pain does not manifest itself for a number of hours post accident. The sudden movement that causes whiplash is present in car accidents when the impact of a collision causes the person in the vehicle to be thrown forward and back, or side to side, in a sudden violent movement. It is not necessarily the speed of the collision that causes the injury rather it is the unusual movement that inflicts the damage. Therefore a person involved in an a low speed car accident can develop the injury just as likely as someone in a higher speed accident.
If your car is damaged then it may require repairing or, depending on the severity of the damage and the age of the car, it may be deemed a write off. In the first scenario we can arrange for an engineer to assess the damage and then arrange for the repairs to be undertaken whilst you are provided with a replacement hire vehicle. If your car is deemed to be a write off we will seek a payment (based on the market valuation) from the insurers of the person at fault. We can also arrange for you to be provided with a replacement hire vehicle until you are put in funds to purchase another vehicle. This can be of vital importance if you use your vehicle for work.
