Whiplash is a common injury following a road traffic accident, affecting drivers and passengers in cars and public transport vehicles.
Injuries of this nature can be extremely painful, causing sufferers to take enforced leave from work as well as enduring medical treatment and physiotherapy.
Croftons Solicitors can help you to claim whiplash compensation for your injuries, as well as any additional costs you may have suffered as a result, including medical bills, damage to your vehicle and any lost earnings.
We will make sure you receive the appropriate physiotherapy as soon as possible to allow for a swift recovery, and recover the cost of any treatment from the ‘at fault’ driver’s insurer.
Croftons Solicitors strive to secure this medical care for you straight away, so you can concentrate on your recovery while we deal with your compensation claim.
Whiplash Claims Eligibility
For a whiplash claim to be eligible for compensation, the incident must have taken place in the last three years.
This time frame is slightly different if the individual involved was under the age of 18 at the time of the incident. If their parents do not make a claim on their behalf, they have three years from the date of their 18th birthday to claim.
Additionally, if the whiplash is not identified until a later date, the three year limit begins from the day the victim is made aware of the diagnosis.
Even in cases where the incident may have been partially your fault, it can still be possible to claim compensation for a reduced amount if the other individual involved was also partly responsible.
