Car accident compensation. Whiplash

If you have - or are now suffering from neck pain after having a car accident, you may be suffering from whiplash. Whiplash is unfortunately a common injury for both drivers and passengers following road traffic collisions.

Call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to assist you with your whiplash compensation claim.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is caused by the rapid forward and backward (or side to side) movement of the head, which over stresses the neck muscles and in some cases can cause serious damage to the ligaments and tendons.

The severity of the injury is likely to depend on the speed at which the collision occurred.

Why bother to claim compensation for a whiplash injury?

Even minor whiplash can cause a great deal of discomfort that lasts for days or even weeks following the incident. Over time this discomfort should subside, however under some circumstances this could take longer without treatment from a qualified physiotherapist.

In order to ensure the best possible treatment for your injury, your appointed solicitor will take into account any additional treatment you may need to speed up the recovery process. In addition to an amount for the injury itself and the discomfort you suffered, you will then be entitled to these additional treatment costs as well.

How much money do I receive for a whiplash injury claim?

Your Whiplash injury settlement amount will depend on the severity of your injury and how it affects you. You will have to undergo a medical examination so that the resulting report can be assessed by your appointed solicitor so they can estimate an appropriate compensation amount.

Whiplash compensation settlements can range between £500 for a minor condition, up to £200,000 for a serious permanent neck injury.

Our compensation claims service will help you get the compensation you deserve as well as providing funds to help you get the best possible treatment for your particular condition.

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.
