When we take on any case, we want you to feel reassured and confident in every aspect of your claim. That’s why we offer a service that puts your needs over and above anything else.
We promise to:
If you’ve been in a road traffic accident and suffered whiplash, you could be entitled to claim compensation to reimburse you for the costs associated with your injuries. Our team of experts dealing with whiplash claims can work with you on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, meaning you won’t have to pay anything upfront if you fully assist us with your claim.
If successful, you’ll pay a percentage of your damages to cover your fees, which we will agree with you from the outset, so you have complete transparency. In the event your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t owe us anything.
We’ll work with you to set up personal insurance cover, so there’s no financial risk to you in pursuing a claim. Get in touch with our experts or start your claim online today.
The amount of compensation you’ll receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and the impact they’ve had on your life. Our expert whiplash lawyers will be able to give you a clearer idea of what you may be entitled to, based on their experience and similar cases they’ve come across.
The amount of whiplash compensation you’ll receive is usually calculated based on the ‘general damages’ and ‘special damages’ you’ve incurred.
Whilst not always an immediate injury, the clinical symptoms may not develop until 6-12 hours after an incident, or even a few days later.
Symptoms can resolve very quickly or can last for upwards of six months. This is known as chronic whiplash or late whiplash syndrome. Neck pain usually develops shortly after the accident but can worsen later.
Common symptoms include:
Other consequences can also develop, including:
In many cases, whiplash will eventually get better on its own or after some basic treatment, but if you are suffering from any symptoms, you should arrange to see a GP as soon as possible to determine the extent of your injuries. They will then prescribe appropriate medication and treatment to speed-up your recovery.
Physiotherapy may be recommended and is most effective when started soon after the injury has occurred, highlighting the need to see your GP as soon as possible. If you are unable to work due to your symptoms, our insurance policy can cover the cost of a physiotherapist, helping you and your family cope with any financial worries.
If you or a member of your family have been involved in an accident, we are on hand to talk you through the claim process and your options. First and foremost, we recommend you carry out the following steps:
You should also call the emergency services if needed or seek medical attention as soon as possible after leaving the scene to confirm you have been injured and receive the appropriate medical care. You should then contact your own insurance company to alert them of the incident.
Once these steps have been carried out, our dedicated road traffic accident team are just a phone call away.
We understand the difficulties often faced by people suffering from whiplash injuries, both at work and at home. That’s why we’ll do everything in our power to get you and your loved ones the maximum compensation.
We will take the time to fully understand the circumstances of your claim, the extent of the injuries suffered and their impact on your life. From this, we’ll be able to create a Personal Support Package that’s tailored to you.
You can be assured we’ll always act in your best interests, ensuring you are medically assessed by an independent GP, and given access to relevant treatment to ensure you have the best chance of overcoming your injuries as quickly as possible, so you can carry on with your life.
If you’d like to know more, take the next step, or just talk to somebody about your experience and what your options might be, please get in touch.
“In this case the support was crucial in helping Mr Turpin return to a state of mind where he was happy again in his work, having at one stage felt like he couldn’t really continue”.
“It would have had a huge impact on his life had he been unable to continue working as a driver, so we have been delighted to help him receive the support he needed”.
Our Whiplash compensation claims work on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you won’t pay a penny, regardless of the outcome of your case.
If successful, part of your compensation will be paid towards your solicitor to cover the fees. This cost will often be a percentage that you agree prior to court proceedings, so you have complete transparency of your No Win, No Fee arrangement upfront.
As part of the No Win, No Fee agreement, you’ll take out personal insurance cover, which will protect you against the cost of additional expenses such as medical records and court fees. If your case is unsuccessful, you won’t owe anything to your solicitor.
