If you have been the driver, passenger or pedestrian in an accident which was no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a whiplash claim.

How do I know if I can make a successful whiplash claim?

Whiplash claims injuries are normally caused during a car accident in which the head is made to jolt violently. A common example is if the car in which you are travelling is hit violently from behind. Whiplash claims injuries may not be noticeable instantly and it may be a couple of days before the pain is felt. However, if you suffer such an accident it is likely you will be able to make a whiplash claim.

The following symptoms can give rise to successful whiplash claims:
  • Neck stiffness, which may persist over weeks or months
  • Shoulder and back pain
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Difficulty swallowing
If you do experience any of the above symptoms it is advisable to seek medical attention from either your GP or local hospital immediately before contacting whiplash claims solicitors. They will be able to suggest the best form of treatment to alleviate the symptoms and help to put you quickly onto the road to recovery.

Recent amendments to personal injury law

The Jackson Reforms were implemented on 1st April 2013, and change the way personal injury claims are made and administered. Here’s how the amendments will affect your claim:
  • Personal injury firms are no longer free permitted to pay referral fees for clients’ details. This is not a problem here at Howells, as we rely on recommendations from previous clients and word of mouth. As a friendly, local and efficient firm, we let the standard of our service do the talking.
  • It is now essential for all clients to have either ‘Before the Event’ or Legal Expenses Cover’ in place before we accept a claim. This ensures that, in the unlikely event that a claim is unsuccessful, clients are not exposed to the costs incurred by the party contesting their claim. This cover is sometimes included as part of a home or car insurance policy; however, if cover is not in place already we will take out a policy on your behalf. A premium will be payable.
  • As a result of the Jackson Reforms, the success fee and insurance premium detailed above must now be made by the client. Neither payment is payable upfront as both will be deducted from the final settlement.
  • In response to the Jackson Reforms, insurance companies have changed the way they handle claims and are now offering an increased number of ‘Pre- Medical Offers’. Here at Howells, we always advise our clients to seek the advice of a medical professional before accepting any insurance settlement. A thorough assessment of the injuries sustained provides clients with a clearer picture of the size of payout they are entitled to.
For a more detailed explanation of how these amendments will impact on the way we handle personal injury claims, give us a call on 0808 178 2773 and we’ll be happy to discuss your case.
