One of the most common injuries following a road traffic accident is a whiplash injury. Whiplash injuries can occur when your head is jolted backwards and forwards during a collision. This is likely to happen if you are involved in a collision with another car or hit a stationary object such as a wall.
Whiplash injuries can range in severity so it is important to get a medical assessment as soon as possible. Some individuals may only experience minor discomfort, pain, stiffness or restriction of movement in the neck for a few days. However for more serious cases, some individuals may face permanent damage or years of discomfort and pain.
If you've suffered a whiplash injury in a road traffic accident that wasn't your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. Typically, you can still make a claim for whiplash injuries up to three years after the date of the accident.
The amount of compensation can vary depending on the severity of your injuries and the impact that the accident has had on your daily life. This could include any loss of earnings from employment or medical costs. Our Birmingham Whiplash solicitors can help you make a financial claim to help cover any losses and include compensation for the impact on your life.
Claims can take a few months to settle however this will depend on a number of factors including: the severity of your injuries; whether this was a hit and run accident; the loss of earnings; and whether the other party admits fault in the accident.
