Whiplash Injury Claims
Whiplash injuries following road traffic accidents are, unfortunately, all too common. The hours and days following the accident can be very stressful as you come to terms with what has happened, get your injury confirmed by your GP and discover how best to treat your injury. You may have had to take time off work because of your injury and may be struggling to cope with the pain and discomfort you are experiencing. So, on top of all this, you may be wondering whether it is worth the ‘effort’ of pursuing a claim for whiplash compensation – would this simply add to your stress, worry and list of things to get done? This article looks at why it is worth pursuing a claim for whiplash injury compensation if you have been injured through no fault of your own and how the ‘stress’ of pursuing a claim is actually just perceived stress.
The Whiplash Injury & Whiplash Symptoms
It would be helpful first of all to take a quick look at how a whiplash injury is actually caused and what the main symptoms of the injury are. A whiplash injury is caused during an accident when one vehicle collides with another vehicle. The impact of the collision can result in the head and neck of the driver (and/or passengers) being suddenly and forcefully thrown back and forth causing the soft-tissue and ligaments in the neck to be stretched beyond their usual range of movement. This usually results in symptoms which can include restricted movement, pain and discomfort in the head and neck, headaches, nausea and pins and needles.
Other Whiplash Symptoms
Other than those, perhaps more obvious, symptoms of whiplash described above, sustaining a whiplash injury can also lead to other ‘inconveniences’ which we do not automatically think of when we think of whiplash injuries. These can include loss of earnings due to having to take time off work, loss of overtime, spending money on travelling expenses to medical appointments, the cost of treatment and prescriptions and a disruption of your hobbies (such as having to refrain from playing football for several weeks). All of these things lead to you not only being out of pocket but also being quite significantly inconvenienced. If all of this has occurred through no fault of your own then you deserve to be compensated.
The Right Solicitor Makes Claiming Easy
Providing you choose the right solicitor to pursue a claim on your behalf – i.e. a solicitor who is an expert at pursuing whiplash injury claims and who specialises in such matters, the ‘inconvenience’ of making a claim will be taken out of your hands and will be dealt with by your solicitor. They will take all the details from you, advise you on exactly how the claims process works, arrange for your claim to be valued and carry out all of the negotiations with the other driver's insurance company. All you will have to do is to deposit the cheque in your bank account at the end of the claim.
Valuing Your Whiplash Claim
A whiplash injury can lead to more than just a few days of pain and suffering and when you take into account exactly what it could lead to, both financially and otherwise, you will see that it is worth taking the time to choose the right solicitor.
The average whiplash claim is in the region of £2,500 to 5,000, but many claims exceed this amount. We can provide you with a valuation for your whiplash claim when you call us for your no obligation whiplash claim assessment.
