Whiplash Injury

Whiplash is often caused by sudden jerking or distortion of the neck. Motor vehicle accidents are a common cause of neck injuries as impact can lead to a shock movement and whiplash-type injuries.

Whiplash Injury

Symptoms of whiplash include pains in the neck and upper back, but sometime the effects are not felt straight away. In fact, it’s common for whiplash to cause pain days, or even weeks, after an accident.

How we can help you

If you feel discomfort around your neck, shoulders and upper back as the result of a road traffic accident, you should seek medical advice straight away.

To make a personal injury compensation claim, call the expert case handlers at Paul Rooney Solicitors on 0808 231 4408, or complete the claim form on the right hand side of this page and we will contact you.

Typical Compensation Amount Information:

The highest awards require permanent disability and severe physical limitations and the lowest awards usually involve minor “whiplash” injuries where there is a full recovery within a few weeks.

Having a pre-existing neck condition may not prevent you from making a compensation claim as compensation can be claimed for an aggravation of a pre-existing problem or an acceleration of the neck symptoms as a result of an accident.

  • Whiplash injury with full recovery after 3 months: £1,500
  • Whiplash injury with full recovery after 6 months: up to £1,900
  • Whiplash injury with full recovery after 12 months: up to £3,000
