How Much Whiplash Injury Compensation Will You Receive?
The amount of whiplash compensation you receive for your whiplash injury depends on many factors. Your claim for compensation for whiplash will be split into two parts – your claim for the actual pain and suffering you have undergone (or are still undergoing), called your ‘general damages’ and your whiplash compensation claim includes any losses and expenses you incur as a direct result of the accident (see below), called your ‘special damages’.
The amount of compensation for whiplash you receive for your general damages claim will depend on the severity of your whiplash injuries, the length of time it takes you to recover from your whiplash injuries and your prognosis for the future (i.e. whether you are likely to suffer any long-term effects from your whiplash injury). You will usually be assessed by a medical expert who will comment on all of these factors in a report which will help your solicitor and the other party’s representative (see below) decide how much compensation you receive. The only way to find out exactly what your claim is worth is to consult the Whiplash Compensation Claims specialists The Legal Oracle. Our solicitors will advise you free of charge and without obligation exactly how much compensation for whiplash you are likely to receive.
