What is whiplash?

Whiplash is one of the most common types of injury sustained after road traffic accidents. People with whiplash suffer pain in their head and neck as a result of the force of the accident. 

Other symptoms include frequent headaches, pain in the muscles of the head, neck and shoulders and dizziness. Head and neck pain may have a significant impact on your range of movement, and your quality of life as a result. 

These symptoms may start several hours after the accident, and last for several months.

This injury may be suffered because of the negligence of the other road user. If you have been injured in a car accident and suffered whiplash as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for the harm this has caused you. PR Scully can support you in making a claim.

PR Scully also has experience representing car accident victims who have suffered burns, brain injuries and long-term illness. If you have suffered any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch to learn more about claiming compensation for your injuries.

We also act in cases where tragically there has been a road traffic accident death. We have the experience and training to handle all legal cases sensitively and expertly, and you will feel reassured having us as the legal experts by your side.

How will my whiplash injury be assessed?

We will arrange for you to be seen by a doctor who will ask you questions about the physical injuries that you suffered as a result of the road traffic accident. 

Before you meet the doctor, it would be a good idea to think about the ways in which your life has been affected by the road accident injuries. For example, you may have needed assistance from a family member or parent in your daily life. Evidence of how the accident has affected you will be useful to us in making your claim.

Once they have met with you, the doctor will then prepare a report and will predict, as accurately as possible, how long they think it is likely to be until your injuries sustained in the road traffic accident have healed completely.

How will my injury be treated?

The doctor may prescribe painkillers, or recommend you take over-the-counter painkillers, depending upon the severity of the whiplash. If the whiplash does not improve, they may refer you on to a pain specialist or physiotherapist. If your mental health has been affected by the injury, the doctor may also refer you to a counselling service.

Who will pay for my treatment?

In some cases of extreme whiplash, you may require rehabilitation via physiotherapy from a private medical provider. As long as we are satisfied that the accident was not your fault, PR Scully will take care of all upfront costs. We will then recover this cost from the at-fault insurer.

Contact us via our website or ring us on 0161 768 3175 for more information from a personal injury attorney about a potential lawsuit and settlement.

What financial compensation will I be entitled to?

Your whiplash claim compensation will vary depending on how much impact whiplash has had on your life, and how long it lasts. We will be able to advise you in advance how much compensation we think you should receive. 

Our legal team knows from experience what you are likely to receive in the vast majority of cases. Using our expertise, we will make an assessment of a likely sum, taking in account various factors such as the cost of any medical treatment, and losses incurred by missing work.

Once we have the medical report through from the doctor that examined you, as long as you are happy with the report, we will let the fault insurance company have a copy and ask them to make an offer for compensation. 

If the amount of compensation that is offered is too low and we do not consider it fair compensation, we will advise you whether we think court proceedings should be issued.
