Whiplash compensation

Personal injury

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the neck caused by a sudden movement to the body. People involved in road traffic accidents often suffer from a whiplash injury.

We are experienced in dealing with whiplash compensation and have recovered thousands of pounds of compensation for clients who have suffered whiplash following road traffic accidents which occurred through no fault of their own.

If you have suffered a whiplash injury following a road traffic accident, which you were not at fault for, then we may be able to help.

Recovery of whiplash compensation and financial losses

We will pursue compensation for your whiplash injury and will also seek to recover any financial losses that you have incurred as a result of the accident. This may include the cost of repairs for damage to your vehicle, the cost of medical treatment, loss of earnings, travel expenses and so on.

With regard to these financial losses, it is always helpful to keep any receipts as evidence of the expenses that you have incurred.

Get as much information as possible after the accident

If the whiplash injury is caused by a road traffic accident, it is important that you get as much information as possible on the other driver who caused the accident including:

  • The name and address of the driver.
  • The make and model of the driver’s vehicle.
  • The driver’s vehicle’s registration number.
  • The name of the driver’s insurer and the driver’s policy number.

You should also obtain the driver’s details if you are a passenger in a vehicle that was not at fault for the accident. Consider the following:

  • The name and address of the driver.
  • The make and model of the driver’s vehicle.
  • The driver’s vehicle’s registration number.
  • The name of the driver’s insurer and the driver’s policy number.

If there are any witnesses to the accident then their contact details (name, telephone number & address) will also be helpful.

Finally we recommend that you seek medical advice in respect of your whiplash injury soon after the accident. This may mean visiting your GP or attending a walk in centre.
