You may already be familiar with the term whiplash. Whiplash is the name given to the soft tissue injury to the neck caused by it being thrown backwards and forwards resulting in the neck extending beyond its capacity. It is probably the most well known of all personal injuries and is usually caused by rear end collisions such as car accidents and public transport accidents although can also be caused by other things such as sports injuries or slips, trips and falls.

Whiplash Injury Claims

The reason why you can make a compensation for a whiplash injury is because it is likely to have been caused by a party that owed you a duty of care. Whiplash is usually caused by breaches of common and well established duties of care; employers to their employees and road users towards each other.

Whiplash Compensation

no win no fee cardiffThe amount of compensation that can be claimed following whiplash will vary depending on the seriousness of the injury, taking into account recovery time and government guidelines. To give you an idea, a minor whiplash injury claim, where full recovery is expected within a couple of months could be worth up to £1,000. On the other hand a major whiplash injury which results in severe damage to the neck and lengthy recovery time could result in compensation of up to £100,000.

In addition to compensation for the physical injuries, claimants can also claim for psychiatric injuries and any other losses that have been incurred by the accident that resulted in whiplash. Usually this includes: loss of income, damage to property, medical bills and travel expenses.

If you have suffered whiplash as a result of an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against the negligent party’s insurance company. In order to make a successful claim you should instruct a personal injury solicitor** in Cardiff within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the whiplash. Any claim brought outside of this time period may become statute barred, which means it cannot progress without the permission of the Court, which will only be granted in very limited circumstances.
