Average Payout in the US for Auto Whiplash Injury Lawuit Claims

Its no secret our roads are getting busier. The motorways of the UK are straining to cope with the amount of traffic that relentlessly pounds the tired tarmac each and everyday. Cities fare no better as gridlock ensues every rush hour. Even hedge lined country roads are feeling the effect as more and more of us try and escape the hustle and bustle of our towns and cities for a more “quieter life”. Its also no secret that the more cars you have on our roads then the more chances of accidents happening.

A staggering 250,000 of UK motorists receive whiplash injuries each year – with 25,000 suffering some form of permanent disability (source: www.carpages.co.uk/news/whiplash-21-03-07.asp). If you are involved in a road traffic accident, whether as a driver, passenger or pedestrian there is a chance you may   suffer from symptoms of whiplash. The following is some advice that may help making your claim easier.

1.The Symptoms: Most whiplash victims claim to suffer from pain around the neck, shoulders or back regions of the body. The pain can be mild at first and quickly develops into more serious and severe pain sometimes leaving a person immobile.

2.Obtain A Medical Certificate:  In every road accident make sure the correct authorities have been called. Inform the Police in every case and if anyone has suffered an injury call an Ambulance and get it checked out. Sometimes whiplash can take effect long after the accident has happened.

3.Seek out a good Whiplash Lawyer:  If you were the innocent party of the accident then getting the advice of a respected Whiplash Claims expert is advisory. Even if the other driver was uninsured or untraced you can still claim compensation from the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).

4.Time to Claim:  Claims must be made within three years from when the accident
