Should I Claim?

Unfortunately there are a lot of people who attempt to fraudulently attain compensation from Whiplash Claims. This makes the process more difficult and time consuming for those with genuine claims who are entitled to compensation. Insurance companies and courts have to spend longer and be more thorough when overseeing Whiplash Claims.

Whiplash can make it very difficult for sufferers to continue with their daily lives and occupations leading to possible personal and financial difficulties. If you have suffered whiplash through an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to compensation.

Before making a claim, it is advisable to check whether or not you could be entitled to making a claim. Making a claim that has no chance of receiving compensation is a waste of your time as well as that of the Injury Solicitors and insurance company. Firstly, the most important thing for the Injury Solicitor to be able to prove is your innocence in the accident. If you have eye-witness accounts testifying that you were the innocent party, your case is strengthened significantly. The testimony of the other parties involved can also be a telling factor so make sure that you have all of your information and documentation correctly and neatly organised.

The proof that your injury will negatively impact on your life could improve the chances of a successful Accident Compensation Claim. A full medical examination will have to be undertaken to ascertain the extent of your injury. Any proof that it will hinder your personal or professional life will strengthen your case. For example: if you cannot take the kids to school and must pay for a taxi, you are losing money because of the injury and is due compensation.

If you consider your injury only to be minor then you may not think that you are entitled to compensation. However, the neck and back are such delicate parts of the body and are undergoing constant stress. These factors can lead to the injury worsening over time. A thorough medical examination needs to be undergone to determine any potential future problems Many people now complain of a perceived 'compensation culture' and are reluctant to claim. Unfortunately there are a lot of people who fraudulently claim against incidents such as car injuries but that should not deter those who have suffered genuine incapacitating injuries. Skilled Injury Solicitors are trained to determine the authentic claims amongst the fraudulent ones so those with correct evidence will be treated with the respect that they deserve.
