Compensation for
Whiplash

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to any type of road vehicle accident, whiplash is perhaps one of the most common types of injury claims. Whiplash results from a sudden impact which is often felt when two vehicles collide, or when a person comes to a sudden stop, and as a result the person can be left with serious head and neck injuries which could plague them for some time to come.

Although it is often dismissed as a minor injury, in some cases whiplash can be quite serious and if left untreated it can lead to a number of further medical problems which can be costly to treat and maintain. As a result, if you have been injured through the negligence of another person, you could consider making a personal injury claim.

 

What could I claim for?

  • Loss of income – if you have been left out of work as a result of your bicycle accident then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any lost income or earnings that you have suffered from as a result
  • Damages – in addition to any medical costs that you have sustained you may also be eligible to claim for additional costs including pain and suffering
  • Medical costs – if you have suffered from whiplash as the result of another person’s negligence then you may be eligible to make a claim against them to recoup any money that you have spent on medical costs including hospital or rehabilitation fees.

What is Whiplash and what are some common symptoms?

Whiplash is a term which describes a sudden forward-backward movement which usually results in pain being felt in one of more areas of the body and normally occurs as the result of an impact or trauma.

Who could I make a compensation claim against?
