Can I bring a claim for compensation for whiplash?

If your neck has been jolted suddenly during an accident, such as a car crash, you may be suffering a whiplash injury. In order to make a successful claim for whiplash compensation, your injury must:

  • Have been caused in the last three years
  • Have been at least partially the fault of someone else

You may also bring a claim on behalf of a person who was under 18 at the time of the accident. We offer a free initial consultation, so if you have suffered whiplash following a road traffic accident, get in touch today to discuss whether you can bring a claim.

Can I make a claim for whiplash compensation as a passenger?

Yes, you can bring a claim even if you are a passenger in the car at fault. We will guide you through the process of bringing your claim. It may feel strange to be bringing a complaint against a friend or family member, but it is, in fact, their insurer that we will deal with and that will pay your compensation should your claim be successful.

How much compensation could I get for a whiplash injury?

If your claim is successful, the amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the extent and nature of your injuries. Minor whiplash injuries generally attract awards of £2,000 to £3,000 in compensation. However, more severe injuries can attract as much as £30,000 in compensation. We will negotiate fiercely with the other party’s insurers to get you the maximum amount owed to you, including any costs or financial losses associated with your personal injury.
