Unfortunately, whiplash is a very common injury sustained by either drivers or passengers who are involved in a road traffic accident. Whiplash is caused by the soft tissue in the neck being stretched beyond its normal range of movement. This causes you to experience pain and discomfort in the back of your neck and back often together with other symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and pins and needles in your arms and hands. If you have suffered a whiplash injury you may be wondering of you are entitled to compensation for your injury. How much compensation are you likely to receive and how long will it take for you to be back to your pre-accident state of health? Loyalty Law can put you in touch with expert personal injury solicitors who will be able to answer all of your questions and will act for you in a fast and efficient manner. They will ensure that you receive the right amount of compensation as quickly as possible and, what’s more, our service for you is completely free of charge.
Whiplash injuries vary in severity from minor (recovery within one to two years of the accident) to moderate (where symptoms continue for more than two years) to severe (where symptoms are likely to go on indefinitely). The amount of compensation you are awarded depends on how badly you have been injured and how long it takes you to recover from your injuries. Loyalty Law solicitors will ensure that you are assessed by an appropriate medical expert who will provide a written prognosis upon which your solicitor will base the assessment of how much compensation you should receive.
The amount of compensation you are awarded is usually agreed between your solicitor and the other party’s solicitor (or insurer), however, if agreement cannot be reached between the parties then the amount of compensation you receive will be decided by the court.
The table below shows the approximate amounts of compensation that you may be awarded depending on the severity of your whiplash injury.
|Minor whiplash injuries where recovery takes place within one year||£750 - £2500|
|Minor whiplash injury where recovery takes place within 2 years||£2500 - £4250|
|Moderate whiplash injuries (where symptoms persist for more than two years and the future prognosis is uncertain)||£4250 - £7750|
|Severe whiplash injury where pain and suffering will continue indefinitely||£7750 - £13,750|
As well as claiming compensation for the injury you have received you are also entitled to claim for any losses and expenses you have incurred as a direct result of the accident. This may include items such as:-
If your vehicle has been damaged as a result of the accident you may be entitled to a replacement vehicle under the terms of your insurance policy.
