Whiplash symptoms include:
- Neck pain and stiffness in the neck
- Loss of movement in the neck
- Dizziness and blurred vision
- Difficulty breathing and swallowing
- Muscle spasms
- Pain in the shoulders, arms and back
If your symptom is not mentioned here it does not mean you don't qualify for compensation, our whiplash
lawyers can help you to decide whether you have a valid claim.
It is also vital that you get appropriate rehabilitation for your whiplash injuries, a process which Shires
can support you with to ensure you receive the treatment you need.
HOW MUCH COULD YOU CLAIM?
Claim awards are largely dependent on the circumstance and severity of the injury. As a guide, severe
injuries, such as severe whiplash trauma (permanent damage) can be potentially worth £97,500,
compensation for less severe whiplash, usually those that will fully heal in a matter of months are
generally rewarded within the region of £850 - £5,200.
LENGTH OF CLAIM
The length of a claim is again widely dependent on the situation and the injury, although rest assured that
our car accident lawyers will deal with your case in the most time efficient manner. Claims for less severe
injuries can typically be resolved within a few months, whereas a more severe injury could potentially take
up to a few years.
