What should I do if I have these whiplash symptoms?
If you suffer any of these symptoms then you should see a doctor immediately about your whiplash injuries. Your GP will be able to assess your injuries and recommend an appropriate treatment. It can’t be stressed strongly enough that it’s important to seek medical advice.
Can I make a whiplash compensation claim?
It’s very likely that you can. Whiplash compensation is often paid out when someone makes whiplash claims. If the accident wasn’t your fault and you’ve suffered whiplash or other injuries, then you are highly likely to be able to claim.
Claiming is fast and easy. All you need to do is contact a good company to discuss making a compensation claim with one of their skilled staff. You can either give them a call or fill out their claim form at the website you visit. Once they´re in touch they´ll go over the details of your accident and give you further advice on how to make a claim.
What does it cost to claim?
It should cost nothing to make a whiplash compensation claim.
Whiplash claims should run on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. This means that you keep ALL of your compensation. Win or lose, claiming with a good company costs you absolutely nothing. If you win you keep every penny, and if you lost you would still not pay a penny. We feel we can’t say fairer than that!
OK I want to claim, what do I do now?
All you need to do is fill out the contact form on the company of your choice and they´ll get your claim moving ASAP. You may need physiotherapy which may be better carried out privately. Most company can arrange this and many more things for you. They’ll also be able to give you an idea of how much compensation for whiplash you may receive.
