Whiplash injury is most commonly the result of a motor vehicle accident, typically due to the impact of another vehicle causing you to be jolted suddenly. Whiplash can also be caused by other accidents, such as an accident at work or in a public place.
Whatever accident caused your whiplash injury, your expert whiplash lawyer can investigate your options to claim for compensation.
Where your injury was caused by a rear or side-on collision in a motor vehicle accident, you should typically be eligible to access compensation for your injuries, lost income and other expenses or losses.
In the event of an accident, your finances can be one of your biggest concerns – especially if you are unable to work. That’s why it’s comforting to know that all our claims (yours included) are run under our No Win, No Fee, No Problems Guarantee.
