Whiplash Injury Claims
What is whiplash? In the UK, around 200,000 people sustain whiplash injuries every year. Whiplash injury occurs when the soft tissues in your neck stretch and strain following a forceful jerk forwards, backwards or sideways. While rear-end collisions are the most common cause of whiplash injuries, head-on and side impact collisions and strenuous physical activities, such as boxing and rugby, can also cause such injuries.

We specialise in providing no win, no fee legal representation to drivers, passengers and athletes diagnosed with whiplash through no fault of their own.

Through your claim, you will be able to recoup the cost of the following expenses:

Following injuring your neck in an accident, you must seek immediate medical attention. While you may feel fine, the symptoms of whiplash may not appear for days afterwards.
Whiplash can usually be diagnosed through listening to an account of your symptoms and performing a physical examination of your neck. Invasive tests and scans are not usually required. You should also retain key details of your accident, such as the names and contact details of any witnesses, as you will need to provide evidence in support of your claim.
