Whiplash injury claims
If you have been affected by a Whiplash injury that wasn’t your fault, then we can help you with whiplash injury claims and compensation.
Causes of whiplash injury
Whiplash is caused by a severe jerk to the head, which can later cause extreme pain to the neck or back. Whiplash injuries most commonly occur in road accidents but can also be caused by sporting accidents, falls, or other traumas.
In some cases, whiplash can be healed over time or with a treatment plan, but others can suffer long-term chronic neck pain or long-lasting back issues. Whiplash injuries can develop symptoms such as:
May 2021 Whiplash Reforms
Due to the whiplash reforms (May 21) whiplash claims have changed significantly. The new regulations meant that anyone suffering from whiplash are to have an injury ‘worth’ £5,000 (instead of £1,000 as prior) this means that for many claimants their injury may not be significant enough to afford them to pay a solicitor to run their claim.
In May 2021 the government introduced a whiplash claims portal which allows claimants to apply for compensation themselves (litigant in person) following an accident that caused them to suffer with a whiplash injury. This portal may be overwhelming and confusing for some, despite the changes here at DIYPI we are still able to help any claimant with their whiplash claim for free. We can provide you with help, guidance and completely manage your claim for you ensuring that you gain the maximum compensation you’re owed.
