At The Manchester Claim Solicitors we are experts in claiming compensation for whiplash injury in Manchester for our clients. Our success rate in winning whiplash injury cases after a car accident in the Manchester area is second to none.
Compensation for whiplash injuries can be claimed only if the road accident and the whiplash injury which results from the accident, are not the claimant’s fault. Whiplash injuries can be caused due to accidents which occur in road traffic, accidents which occur while playing contact sports and accidents which occur at the workplace. Out of these, whiplash injuries which are caused due to accidents in road traffic are very common.
Whiplash injuries are very dangerous. They affect the neck and back of a person. These injuries occur when a vehicle hits one’s vehicle from behind. The impact causes the person’s head to be tossed back and forth. This causes the muscles and ligaments in the neck to stretch more than usual, which results in whiplash injury.
The usual symptoms of whiplash injury are neck or back pain, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision and discomfort. When such symptoms occur, you should see your GP or your local hospital Accident and Emergency Department and collect the entire medical records from the GP or hospital. These records are important if your compensation claim is to succeed. You should also collect details such as the name of the party who caused the accident, any eyewitness account of the accident and police reports about the accident. Photos of the accident scene, which clearly shows the damage to the claimant’s car, will also be very helpful while making a claim for compensation. This will go a long way in helping you make a successful compensation claim.
The amount of compensation for whiplash injuries in Manchester depends upon several factors such as, the gravity of the whiplash injury, any income loss incurred by you as a result of the whiplash injury, any lasting damage due to the injury and any other monetary loss you may have suffered due to the whiplash injury. The court will look at all these factors before awarding the claim.
You have to make it a point to get yourself examined thoroughly by a doctor who is experienced in handling whiplash injuries. This is important because, if left unchecked, the symptoms of whiplash injury could recur a long time after the claim has been settled. This could result in added medical expenses not covered by the claim. To avoid such a situation, you have to get proper medical care soon after the accident.
Compensation for whiplash injuries can be claimed from the insurance company of the driver who hit your vehicle. Our personal injury solicitors specializes in road traffic accident compensation claims; especially whiplash injuries. At the Manchester Claim Solicitors our services are offered on a strictly No Win-No Fee basis. This means, our efforts on your behalf will never cost you a single penny regardless
