Whiplash is one of the most common injuries suffered as a result of a road traffic accident. If your vehicle is hit by another vehicle, or hits another object, the sudden jolt could mean your head, neck and back are thrown forwards and backwards with severe force in a fraction of a second. This can cause damage to the muscles resulting in pain and often restricting movement in these areas.
The Accident Advice Bureau are whiplash injury compensation specialists with years of experience. We will help you claim the whiplash injury compensation you may be legally entitled to, as a result of a non fault accident. Once your claim is accepted we will appoint a specialist whiplash compensation solicitor. Your whiplash injury claim will be worked on a no win no fee basis where you will have the peace of mind knowing that win or lose, you will not be asked for any money at any time.

The injuries above can all be whiplash symptoms and can make simple daily tasks seem very difficult and in severe cases, help may be required to assist in daily life. Some whiplash sufferers are unable to drive for a long period of time due to the restricted movement; in particular it can affect reversing a car. Even trying to get comfortable at night can be extremely difficult and mean a good night's sleep is severely affected.
Effects of whiplash can often be felt immediately after the accident but it is also common not to feel pain for a few days after the accident. The hospital or a doctor should be visited to ensure no long term damage has been done to the neck or spinal region. The doctor or hospital may give painkillers or suggest physiotherapy to help the whiplash pain. If it is necessary for the physiotherapy to be given at a private practice and there are costs involved, then these could be reclaimed on top of the compensation awarded for the injuries sustained.
If you think you may be entitled to a whiplash claim, it makes sense to use a specialised whiplash claim company. The advantage of going through a claims company to seek whiplash compensation is that an independent third party has already carefully selected a solicitor for you. For a claims company to do this they must be satisfied that the solicitor is meeting high quality standards of service and looking after the clients well.
This is certainly the case at the Accident Advice Bureau, where we have a wealth of experience in securing whiplash claim compensation for our clients. For the last decade, we have helped thousands of people with their whiplash claim.
If you were a passenger in a car, cab, bus or other vehicle, and left with whiplash, we can certainly help you to make a whiplash claim. We can also help you to make a whiplash claim if you were the driver and not deemed to be at fault. Even if the accident was deemed to be your fault, we can still help your passengers with their whiplash claim.

We also claim special damages which could be for any damage to clothing, travel expenses and home help if required. Many days off work are taken by employees who have suffered an accident involving whiplash injuries. This may then result in loss of earnings. If you have lost wages due to the whiplash then we can also claim back the pay you lost. These expenses are on top of the whiplash compensation awarded for your injuries. You will have the peace of mind knowing your whiplash claim will be worked on by a personal injury solicitor specialising in whiplash claims, with a No Win No Fee agreement in place.
Every year, thousands of people have reason to submit a car accident compensation claim and win whiplash compensation on a No Win No Fee basis. Many accident sufferers will be awarded 100% compensation for their injuries with our help. Many of the whiplash claims we handle are due to whiplash injuries, as a result of a road traffic accident, work accident or a slip/trip.
Whiplash and whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) are the range of soft tissue neck injuries caused by, or related to, a sudden distortion of the neck.
While whiplash is commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents, usually after a car has been hit from behind, you can also get whiplash in other ways, for example following falls from bicycles or horses, or even from head banging. The pain can last for a matter of days, or, in more severe cases, a number of years, but clearly it's important to seek medical treatment as quickly as possible.
The pain can start within minutes or the accident, or maybe a day or so afterwards. Unfortunately, whiplash can bring with it problems like blurred vision, headaches and a loss of concentration. You should also remember that whiplash can happen even in collisions with speeds of just a few miles per hour.
Whiplash compensation is one of the main areas covered by car insurers. In Britain, 430,000 people made a whiplash claim in 2007 (that's three quarters of all UK motor insurance claims), accounting for 14% of every driver's premium], with a resulting payout amounting to £1.9 bn.
As the driver, whether it's a car, bus, lorry, taxi, or any public transport vehicle, if you have suffered a whiplash injury you can claim whiplash compensation for a non fault accident. If the accident is seen to be the fault of the driver, then the driver is unable to make a claim, we could however help any passengers that may have been involved.
As a passenger, if you have suffered whiplash injuries in a car, taxi, bus or other vehicle you can claim whiplash compensation regardless of whose vehicle was at fault, as you were not to blame. You will receive 100% compensation* for the whiplash injuries you have suffered. If the accident was due to a family member or friend having a traffic accident, it is important to realise you can still claim, as the compensation is paid by an insurance company, not by the person responsible for the collision.
Once your claim has been accepted and is being worked on, a medical assessment may be required to help determine the exact level of whiplash compensation you will receive based on all of your injuries and length of suffering. This will be arranged by your solicitor and will be local to where you live. To see examples of injury compensation awards, please click on the link for our Compensation Estimator above.
