Whiplash Compensation Claims
If you have suffered whiplash, whether after a slip, trip or fall, or because of a road traffic accident, chances are you’ll be feeling uncertain about taking legal action. Whiplash compensation awards are not a foregone conclusion in every case, however, if you have suffered due to the negligence of a colleague or car driver, it’s generally accepted they should reimburse you for the suffering and damages incurred.
Were you involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault? If you have suffered whiplash as a result, we can assist you in building a solid case against the person responsible, and work towards recovering 100% compensation on your behalf.
There are many non-fault incidents that might lead to a claim for whiplash compensation, including:
- A front/ rear-end vehicle collision caused by another driver.
- Slips or falls caused by debris or a spillage.
- Heavy objects falling from height.
- A bus/ coach breaking sharply to avoid a person/ object in the road.

Maximum Compensation For Your Suffering
Whiplash injury compensation is intended to compensate you for the immediate suffering and losses brought about by an accident. As a rule, compensation is decided taking into account ‘general’ and ‘special’ damages. General damages are intended to compensate for the physical suffering endured, whereas special damages tend to cover the financial repercussions of an accident. Entitlement to special damages will be determined by the personal injury solicitor appointed to your case, however we work hard to ensure that all damages are considered when evaluating your claim.
