Whiplash claims are the most common road traffic accident claims that we deal with at Mercury Legal. The Association of British Insurers discovered that there were over 200,000 claims of this nature last year.
The injury occurs when the head is unexpectedly jolted backwards or forwards and affects the soft tissue in the neck. Whiplash can result in headaches, back and neck pain, numbness, spasms and tiredness as well as a range of other side effects. The symptoms of this injury are sometimes not felt for hours following your accident and can even result in loss of memory. In the more extreme cases, surgery is required in order to remedy long-term pain and discomfort. In this case, Mercury Legal are on hand to ensure you receive the financial compensation you deserve.
Whiplash is unpredictable in nature and for this reason it is important that you get independent legal advice as soon as possible after your accident. Your particular case can then be correctly evaluated in order to ensure you get the most out of your claim. Some insurers will be quick to get in touch in order to get an offer confirmed but beware as they may be undervaluing your situation.
