How Do You Know If You Have Whiplash?

After getting into a car accident, chances are that you will not immediately develop whiplash injury as it takes some time for the symptoms to appear. So it is very important for a person to know whether he has whiplash injury or not. That is why you should know about the symptoms of whiplash injury. Here are a few symptoms of whiplash injury that may be helpful for you in identifying whether you have whiplash injury or not.

Get Proper Medical Treatment

Getting medical treatment is very important in a case of whiplash injury claim. If you connected a doctor and you came to know that you have whiplash injury, get connected with him and receive proper medical treatment from him. If you don’t get medical treatment for your injury, you may end up losing your claim money because of lack of evidence. Moreover, whiplash can be very painful sometimes so its timely cure can help you avoid various unwanted consequences. So after diagnosing your injury, get connected with your medical specialist to get proper treatment.

Gather All Important Evidence

The importance of evidence cannot be denied in any case. So is the case with whiplash injury claims. In order to get your whiplash claim compensation, you need to have as many pieces of evidence as you can have. The more pieces of evidence you have, the stronger your case of whiplash claims is. That is why you should have more and more pieces of documents to make your case stronger. Here are a few examples of the documents you may need as proof when it comes to getting your whiplash injury claim.

And the list goes on. Simply collect all the important pieces of proof in this step.

File Your Claim

Collected all the important pieces of evidence you need? If yes, then it’s time to get connected with the insurance company. In this step you have to notify the insurance company about your whiplash injury claim and file your claim. The more pieces of evidence you provide to the company, the more chances of getting your claim money are. The sooner you file your claim, the sooner you will get it. That is why you should get connected with the insurance company as soon as possible to file your whiplash claim.

Hire a Whiplash Claims Specialist

The case of a whiplash injury claim can be very complicated sometimes and it requires an expert to handle your case. To prove yourself innocent in the case, it is very important to prove that the other part was at fault and the accident was caused due to the negligence of the other party. Taking any wrong step in getting your whiplash claim compensation can go against you and you may have to lose your claim money. Moreover, there are a lot of formalities of a whiplash claims procedure which need to be handled by the experts.

That is where a whiplash claims specialist comes into play. A whiplash claims specialist or an injury claims specialist is usually a member of a claims management company who is an expert in getting whiplash claims on behalf of his clients. He is an expert in getting whiplash claims and knows the in depth procedure of whiplash injury compensation. There are a lot of people who do not hire an injury claims specialist and end up losing your claim money.

Lawswood Claims is an injury claims management company in the UK which has expert whiplash claims specialists working in it. Our injury claims experts have years of experience in getting whiplash claims on behalf of our clients.

How Much Money Can You Get from Whiplash?

Of course the main purpose of filing a whiplash claim is to get the amount of compensation so a person can get the money back which he spent on treating his whiplash injury. But there are a lot of people who do not know how much money can they get if they file a whiplash claim? If you are also one of those people who are curious to know about the amount of compensation for their whiplash injury claims cases, you are at the right place because all your confusion will be cleared below.

The amount of compensation a person gets is totally dependent on the severity of the injury and its effects on the other aspects of your life. But a normal or a minor case of whiplash injury can get you an amount of £1,000 to £2,750 but it also depends on many other factors. In some cases, people have received more than £95,000 as their amount of compensation from the insurance company. So there is no fixed amount a person gets for his whiplash or neck injury but the estimated range for your whiplash claim compensation has been mentioned above.

Charges of a Claims Management Company

Some people do not hire any representative to get their whiplash injury claims because they think that would cost them a lot and they will not be able to bear the fee of that representative. While some people don’t hire any claims specialist because they think that spending money on any third party is not a good idea when they can get their claim money on their own. But that is not the case. If you don’t hire any whiplash claims specialist, you may lose your chance of money. The importance of hiring a claims specialist has been explained above so let’s come to the point.

Till 2013, the other party was liable to pay the success fee to the case representative of the winner party so the claims expert could receive the money from the other side and the client did not have to pay anything from his pocket. But the government of the UK changed these laws in 2013 and now almost 25% of the claim money is charged from the client’s amount of compensation by all the claims management companies and legal representatives in the UK.

But Lawswood Claims is a very professional claims management company and we believe that some clients cannot afford to pay 25% of their share of claim money to a claims management company. That is why, we can charge less than 25% winning fee from the share of claim money of our clients depending on some factors because we believe that our client deserves this money. Moreover, our No Win No Fee compensation is very beneficial for the clients as we do not charge even a penny until our client wins the case and gets his whiplash claim money.

Average Time for Whiplash Payout

Getting whiplash injury claims can take time sometimes and a lot of people are curious to find out, how much they have to wait in order to get their whiplash claims? If you are also among those people who are finding answer to this question, you are the right place and you will find your answer here.

It requires patience to get your whiplash claim money and it may take some months in getting your whiplash claim money. There is no rule of thumb for the time required to get your whiplash claim money. It is hard to tell a fixed amount of time for getting whiplash claims as it depends on many factors.

To make it short, the amount of time it requires to get your whiplash claim compensation normally depends on two major factors. One is whether the other party admits its fault or not while the second factor depends on the severity of your injury.

If your injury is minor, and the other party accepts its fault, it can even be resolved in a month or two. If the other party accepts its fault but your injury is serious, it can take some months to get your whiplash claim money. In a nutshell, the time for getting whiplash claim money can range from a month or two to even a year or more. But in most whiplash cases, despite having the problems that slow down the progress of your case, you can still get your money in nine months. Generally it doesn’t take more than this.

Time Limit for filing Whiplash Injury Claim

Like car accident claims and some other personal injury claims, you can file your whiplash claim within the three years of your car accident. As whiplash injury is most commonly caused by the road traffic accidents, it is said that you are allowed to make your whiplash claim at any time within the three years of your accident. But it does not mean that you should wait so long in order to file your claim. The earlier you file your claim, the sooner you will get it. That is why you should not wait for too long and file your whiplash claim whenever you collect an ample amount of evidence for making your claim.

Is it Difficult to Get Whiplash Claims?

A lot of people think that getting whiplash injury claims is a very difficult thing and they might not be able to get their share of compensation. It is true that, in some cases, getting whiplash injury claims becomes a hard nut to crack sometimes. There are a lot of reasons for which it becomes difficult to prove your innocence and get your share of whiplash injury claims.

The most common misconception people have about getting whiplash injury claims is that, the symptoms of whiplash injury often appear after some time has been passed to the accident and they think that because of this gap in the time duration, they will not be able to get their whiplash claim money. This confusion has been cleared above where the time duration for whiplash claims has been told three years from the time of the accident.

But despite having a bunch of proof, people still can’t get their claim money due to the lack of knowledge about the claims management process. Having a lack of knowledge about the whiplash claims management can cost you very negatively and you may end up losing your claim money. There are a lot of people who do not hire any whiplash claims specialist and end up losing their claim money.

Experts at Lawswood Claims are fully aware of each and every aspect of injury claims management and we have injury claims specialists who have their expertise in whiplash injury claims. By using our years of experience in getting whiplash injury claims on behalf of our clients, we have faced countless cases of different levels of difficulties.
