How Much Is The Average Whiplash Compensation Claim?

Whiplash injuries can include pain around the neck, stiffness and difficulty in moving your head, pain in the shoulders and arms and headaches. Your symptoms could pass within weeks or in severe cases could take months or longer to resolve.

Because of this, it is difficult to give an average figure for whiplash compensation, however our team are highly experienced in this type of claim and will be able to discuss with you the likely level of award that you could receive.

We will take into account points such as whether you also have other pain and injuries, the extent to which your life has been affected and whether you have any other symptoms that you should be compensated for, such as the psychological impact of the accident.

We also have a Whiplash Claim Calculator which you can use to give you a rough idea of the potential amount of your claim.

How Long Does An Average Whiplash Claim Take?

Whiplash is a painful injury that most affects the neck and shoulder caused by a sudden movement of the body that jars the head. It is often a result of a car being shunted, but can also happen if you slip or fall.

Whiplash claims are often settled in around six months. There are a number of factors that could affect the length of time your whiplash claim takes, including the following:

  • How bad your injury is
  • What your medical reports say about the length of time it will take you to recover and whether you are advised to wait and see how your recovery progresses before settling your claim
  • Whether the other party’s insurer accepts that they are liable for your accident
  • Whether your case goes to court

We often settle cases without going to court by negotiating with the solicitors for the other party. This is a faster option than court, particularly if there are backlogs in the courts system. We have strong negotiating skills and know how to achieve the best possible offers of compensation for our clients.

How Can I Fund A Whiplash Claim?

We believe that justice should be available to everyone and we work to ensure that your claim can be funded whatever your circumstances.

Payment Of Your Costs By The Other Side

If your claim is successful, your legal fees will generally be paid by the other party, usually the insurance company representing the at-fault driver, if your whiplash was caused by a car accident. If we negotiate a settlement on your behalf, it will include payment of your legal fees.

Legal Expenses Insurance

It is not possible to make a no win no fee whiplash in Northern Ireland as the law does not permit this, but we are able to offer legal expenses insurance that would cover your legal costs in the event that your claim was not successful. If you win your case, then there will be a modest fee to pay to cover the cost of the legal expenses insurance. This offers a risk-free way to bring a whiplash compensation claim.

Legal Aid

In some circumstances, you may be eligible for Legal Aid to cover the cost of bringing your claim. We can advise you as to whether you qualify and, if so, make the application to the Legal Aid Board on your behalf.

How Much Of My Compensation Payment Will I Keep?

We guarantee that you will keep 100% of your compensation payment. We do not make any deductions ourselves from your payment and our costs of your successful claim will generally be met by the paying party along with your damages award.
