How Long Does a Whiplash Claim Take?

The time taken for your claim for compensation to be completed will depend on the severity of your injuries and also whether the person responsible admits liability.

A whiplash injury will often increase in severity at first and can take a long time to improve or stabilise. It is important to ensure we know the full extent of an injury to ensure that the maximum compensation settlement is achieved for you.

If your whiplash injury was caused by a car accident, you are likely to be able to claim compensation from the “at fault” driver’s insurance company. If the injury arose from a fall that was caused by someone else, you should be able to make a claim if the injury was caused by negligence or fault. Examples include tripping over an uneven pavement or slipping on a wet supermarket floor.

If the other party deny they were at fault for the accident this could mean that the claim will take longer. If the police are involved in the incident, it may also be necessary to wait for the outcome of any criminal case against the other driver.

A whiplash claim is often settled before it reaches court. The insurance company will usually offer a sum of money to you and we will consider whether it is enough in the light of your medical evidence and legal advice. We would usually negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure that the maximum settlement is achieved.

Once your case is settled the compensation cheque is usually sent out rapidly.

Time Limits for Making a Whiplash Claim

It is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after an accident as there are deadlines for making a claim for compensation. The time limit is usually three years from the date of the incident, or by your 21st birthday if you were under 18 when the accident happened.

By getting the right advice as soon as possible you ensure that you know where you stand and what your options are. We can provide you with free legal advice immediately after an accident and help you. You can then decide whether you wish to proceed with a compensation claim or not. It is worth speaking to us immediately so that you know your legal rights after an accident.

In the event of a more severe injury, we will make sure that the full extent of it is apparent before settling, to ensure that you are fully compensated for all of the loss and injury you have suffered.

Why Choose Us?

Michael realised that many people were not getting the legal service they deserve and he was determined to do things better than the other solicitors out there.
