Compensation for Whiplash
Car accidents happen every single day on our roads, and if you’ve been in one, you’ll know what a horrible and distressing experience it can be for everyone involved. Whiplash is a common complaint suffered by many people who have been in car accidents. This painful neck injury is caused by a sudden forward movement of the head, and can take many weeks (and even months) to recover from. Often, this can mean taking a substantial amount of time off work, which could result in loss of earnings.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury as a result of a traffic accident that was not your fault, you could be eligible to claim compensation. It doesn’t matter whether you were the driver or passenger – you can still make a whiplash claim, which means you could be compensated for your injuries and any financial losses caused by the other party's negligence, including:
- Loss of earnings
- Damage to property
- Other associated costs and expenses
What’s more, if any of these losses are likely to continue into the future, they will also be taken into consideration as part of your claim.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you should see a medical specialist immediately so that they can assess and care for any injuries you’ve sustained. And if you think you may have grounds to make a whiplash claim, it’s important to get expert legal advice as soon as possible after the accident happens. However, don’t worry if your accident took place a while ago - you can still begin a compensation claim for whiplash up to three years after the accident occurred.
