Whiplash Injury Compensation Claims
Have you suffered a whiplash injury that wasn’t your fault? Then you may be entitled to a Whiplash Injury Compensation Claim.
Whiplash is a type of Soft Tissue Injury which affects the neck, back and shoulders, usually after the head has been jolted forwards, backwards or sideways causing a sudden extension of the neck muscles. It affects 20% of passengers in Road Traffic Accidents.
After an accident, the symptoms of whiplash often take up to 12 hours to develop. The neck pain and stiffness is often worse on the day after the injury and may get worse for several days afterwards.
Typical Symptoms of Whiplash include:
- Neck Stiffness
- Tenderness around the neck area
- Turning or bending the neck may be difficult
Whiplash injuries are common after Rear End Collisions. Whiplash can occur even if the accident happened at a low speed – it doesn’t necessarily have to be a high speed impact to cause severe whiplash.

Most whiplash injuries aren’t serious, and can be healed within a matter of weeks with the help of pain killers and anti-inflammatories, however, it is especially important to visit your GP, particularly if you want to undergo a claim for compensation, as medical records will need to be provided, as to prove your injuries and the causes of them.
At Claims National, we are aware of the recovery time and expenses of which your whiplash injury will cause. We also understand that you may have had to take time off work in response to your injuries, which can lead to a loss of earnings. Making a claim for compensation will cover any costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation, time off work, and loss of earnings, as well as compensating you for the pain and suffering you may have experienced.
