Whiplash Compensation Claims Lawyers Glasgow, Scotland

Whiplash is often dismissed as a minor injury, mainly because it is – to some extent – invisible. It is usually caused in car accidents when your head is suddenly jerked forwards, backwards or sideways.

Often whiplash can get better within a few weeks to months, though in more serious cases it can last much longer and severely limit the injured person’s activity.

However serious or minor you or others consider your whiplash injury, where you suffer due to an accident that was not your fault, you are entitled to be compensated for your pain, suffering and losses. The solicitors at Jones Whyte Law specialise in whiplash claims, so give us a call today and we can help you get the personal injury compensation you ought to be awarded.

Whiplash Compensation Claims

The amount of compensation you are entitled to depends on how serious your injuries are, as well as the effect the injury has had on your life. The team at Jones Whyte are experts in getting the maximum level of compensation possible for our clients’ injuries. It is not possible to tell you the exact amount you will receive, however the national guidelines offer a realistic estimate:

  • Minor neck injury where you recover in three months: £100 to £1,860.
  • Minor neck injury where you recover within between three months and a year: £1,860 to £3,300.
  • Minor neck injury where you recover within between one to two years: £3,300 to £6,000.
  • Moderate neck injury where the soft tissue injuries heal in a few months or years but your injury is still vulnerable to further trauma and healing has taken a long time: £6,000 to £10,450.
  • Moderate neck injury where you have soft-tissue damage or wrenching-type injuries as well as disc lesions, which cause cervical spondylosis, limitation of movement, pain and stiffness: £10,450 to £19,000.
  • Moderate neck injury where there are fractures and dislocations within the neck and the cervical spine, which causes immediate symptoms that require treatment (this includes soft tissue damage that permanently limits function or renders you vulnerable to further trauma): £19,000 to £29,250.

What Can You Claim For?

If your whiplash is serious, it might have a negative knock-on effect on your employment, in that you might have to miss work. If this is the case, you can claim compensation for your loss of income, as well as for any expenses you might have incurred in receiving care and rehabilitative treatment. These are called special damages. As well, the dedicated solicitors at Jones Whyte will claim for compensation for the pain and suffering you have incurred as a result of your injury. These are general damages.

Whiplash Solicitors in Glasgow, Scotland

Once we have gone through your case with you and established that we are able to assist, we will begin to put your claim together. This will require collecting all the relevant evidence and, were appropriate, arranging for an independent medical professional to assess your injuries. When we have gathered all the information necessary, we will set about settling your case – whether that be by way of an out of court negotiation with the responsible party’s insurance company or by taking legal action through the courts.

An out of court settlement is the preferred route, as it is the least time consuming, stressful and costly. However, court action for whiplash claims is increasingly common, due to the fact that insurers regularly undervalue these claims. Our determined team will always advise a course of action that is consistent with your best interests. If your matter proceeds to court, we will provide expert representation in order to achieve the maximum amount possible.

If we are successful, then you simply pay us a reasonable percentage of your damages.
