Our expert Personal Injury Lawyers have helped thousands of people claim compensation for whiplash injuries sustained in car accidents and other road traffic accidents.
Whiplash is a non-medical term used to describe soft tissue injuries in and around the neck, shoulders and spine.
Whiplash injuries are caused when the head suddenly snaps backwards, forwards or sideways and often happen after a sudden impact such as a road accident.
Whiplash symptoms can include pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and sometimes down the arms. Some people also suffer headaches and find that turning or bending the neck can be difficult.
Less common symptoms can include dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, muscle spasms and pain in the lower back.
It can take 6 – 12 hours for whiplash symptoms to develop.
Although whiplash symptoms can resolve themselves after a few days, some whiplash injuries can take several weeks to heal with neck pain and stiffness getting worse in the days immediately following the accident.
Some people can suffer from chronic whiplash, which is when their whiplash symptoms last for six months or more.
You can claim compensation for whiplash as long as you have been injured and can provide medical evidence.
Our expert Whiplash Injury Solicitors can advise you whether you have a case based on your own individual circumstances.
How Long does the Whiplash Compensation Claim Process Take?

In many cases where whiplash injuries are not severe, our whiplash solicitors can fast track claims, ensuring that you receive compensation as quickly as possible.
The average payout for whiplash compensation varies from claim to claim. It’s hard to give an average whiplash payout amount as each case is unique.
