PHC Preston Solicitors Complete Claim

in Blog

One of our Preston injury lawyers recently completed a compensation claim for a whiplash injury caused by a road traffic accident. It’s a common misconception that a person can’t claim for whiplash anymore because of reforms occurring at the Ministry of Justice.road traffic accident injury claim

However, people can claim for neck injuries. The content availble online and via social media can confuse this issue. As long as the injury was non-fault and it occurred in the last three years, the reforms at the Ministry are not stopping this process.

The Claimant in question was a passenger in a vehicle when it was hit in the rear by another car. The collision took place at some speed. He suffered a whiplash injury to his neck. There are different degrees of whiplash injury, yet it can be a painful experience and not even seem to be a severe injury at the time.

Our client was self-employed and had to take time off work to recover from the injury, as many people often do. Some people also require lengthy physiotherapy during the recovery. However, on behalf of our client we recovered compensation for him in the sum of £3,800 which included a payment to cover his lost earnings.
