Can I claim injury compensation after a car insurance claim?
If you have been involved in a car accident that was not your fault, you can pursue a claim for injury compensation for up to 3 years after the accident occurred. If however you have previously made an injury claim for the same accident, you cannot pursue another one.
Why would anyone want to make an injury claim a long time after an accident?
Not all injuries are immediately obvious at the time of an accident.
For example, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is widely recognised mental condition which can be caused by the trauma of an accident, but may not manifest itself for some time afterwards.
Also the effects of some whiplash injuries can sometimes take weeks or months to develop.
If you have any neck pain or headaches in the days following the car accident, you may have suffered a whiplash or other injury. The solicitors we work with can discuss your situation and look to pursue a claim for you if appropriate. We will always look to achieve the best possible settlement for your injury.
Whiplash is a common injury sustained in many car accidents, and if you believe you have any of the symptoms associated with this injury, it's definitely worth getting it checked out by a GP.
