How Much Compensation Am I Entitled to for my Whiplash Claim?
A Whiplash Injury is caused by sudden head movement. The soft tissues become stretched and damaged resulting in pain. The pain is often experienced in the neck, shoulder and back areas.
Whiplash symptoms are very frequently experienced by those involved in Road Traffic Accidents.
It is generally quite difficult at the outset of a claim to advise how much compensation that you are entitled to for a Whiplash Injury. The main reason being that the severity of the injuries and prognosis for recovery is often unknown at the early stages of a claim. The severity of the injuries and prognosis for recovery has a significant bearing on the amount of compensation that you are entitled to, for example, someone with minor injuries who makes a full recovery in a few weeks will be entitled to less compensation than someone who has sustained more severe injuries and will not make a full recovery for a number of months or years after the accident.
We can arrange a medical examination with a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who will assess your injuries and then provide a medical report on the severity of your symptoms and the prognosis for recovery. We will then be able to value your claim as to the amount of compensation you are entitled to.
As a rough guide, compensation for Whiplash Type Injuries generally falls somewhere between £500 – £12,000 depending on the severity of your symptoms and prognosis for recovery.
