The process of making a Whiplash Claim can be a hard, long and arduous one without the right team in your corner. Insurance companies are notoriously tricky to squeeze money out of and will try every trick in the book to avoid paying out. They are in the business to make money and keep money rather than help out the unfortunate victims of whiplash and other injuries. Using our teams of skilled, professional Injury Solicitors you can claim the compensation that you are entitled to.
The first step is to correctly and accurately document every aspect of the accident. If you do not document every aspect of the accident thoroughly, your claim could be deemed unreliable. All names and contact information must be taken from all parties involved at the site of the accident including any witnesses. If it is possible to obtain statements from eye-witnesses then do so, they could be invaluable to your Whiplash Claim.
Secondly the accident and the injury need to be reported to the appropriate authority. For example if the accident occurred in a motor vehicle collision then the law enforcement needs to be contacted for a full and complete police report to be made. Alternatively if the injury is obtained at your workplace then your supervisor needs to be accurately informed.
You must contact your Injury Solicitor in timely fashion with all the correct information. Failure to do so or a delay in action could have detrimental effects on your claim. The authorities will question why you delayed the decision not to act immediately and report the injury.
Next a thorough medical examination will have to be undergone to determine the extent and seriousness of the injury. Without this a full Accident Compensation Claim is unlikely to be successful.
Complying with these simple yet necessary steps, your chances of receiving compensation from a Whiplash Claim will be greatly increased
