How much can I claim for whiplash?

As with any injury claim, the amount awarded for a whiplash claim will depend largely on the severity of the injury. Call us on 02392 484 244 to find out if you will be able to claim.

Whiplash is a common injury following a road traffic collision. When two vehicles collide, the occupants are often subjected to a sudden forwards and backwards motion. This motion can put a great deal of stress on the neck muscles of an individual and leads to the condition known as whiplash.

A whiplash injury may not be apparent at the time, but in the following hours or days the victim may notice both pain and restricted movement in the neck area. Even for a minor whiplash injury you may be entitled to a settlement of several hundred pounds for the discomfort you have suffered, so it’s worth contacting us to find out if we can help.

More severe whiplash injuries can have a much longer recovery time and in some cases a lasting impact on a person’s life. In cases such as this claim settlements can run into thousands of pounds to compensate you for this extended recovery period.

No need to claim on your insurance

Anyone who has been involved in a road accident has the right to choose who repairs their vehicle. If you were responsible for the accident you were involved in, the company that insures your vehicle would normally deal with your accident claim.

However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.

No excess to pay

Unfortunately even if an accident was not your fault, your insurer will almost certainly require you to pay your excess before any repair is started on your car.

This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.

By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.

Receive a comparable replacement hire vehicle

Not all insurance policies will include a replacement hire-car for you to use if yours is damaged and unroadworthy. In fact it is typically an 'optional extra' on your policy.

Other policies may offer a 'courtesy car' but this is often just a 'basic' saloon or hatchback which may not be suitable for your needs.

Car Call and its partners will provide a comparable replacement vehicle as part of our service. This means we will endeavour to supply a hire-vehicle that similar to your own in terms of its type, make and engine size.

So whether you drive a small hatchback or a prestige sports car, we will look to provide a similar hire-vehicle that suits your needs.
