Whiplash Claims Average Payout

whiplash injuries

We help people with whiplash injuries on a daily basis. They are the most common form of injury sustained from a road accident. As expert personal injury lawyers we can guarantee a maximum payout for a whiplash injury for a whiplash compensation claim. But how much are we talking about for a successful claim in terms of payout?

Average payouts for whiplash injury

The banding for whiplash claims are set out in to three common areas – Minor, Moderate, and Severe. The Judicial Studies Board Guidelines, which are used by solicitors to value whiplash claims with medical evidence, provide us with the payout information needed to settle a claim for the maximum amount possible.

Minor whiplash injury payouts

A full recovery after a few weeks to a year – the payouts range between  £875 to £2,850.

A full recovery within 2 years – payouts range between £2,850 to £5,150.

The average payout for a minor whiplash is usually around £2,850 – but to get this amount, you will require the services of a fully qualified personal injury lawyer to represent you in a claim.

Moderate whiplash injury payouts

Moderate whiplash injuries range from £5,150 to £16,400.

As you can see, it’s quite a large bracket. There will be a lot of information, including medical reports, required to correctly value your whiplash claim.

Severe whiplash injury payouts

With a severe whiplash injury, it’s all the more important to make sure you get the right qualified lawyer on your side. Severe whiplash can range up to anywhere in the region of £97,000!

How much will I be paid out?

This all depends on how you go about your accident claim. By hiring a fully qualified personal injury lawyer to represent you for your claim you’ll be guaranteed that they will fight to get you the maximum payout you deserve. Only a proper personal injury lawyer can guarantee this!

Your claim amount can vary depending on who you instruct:

An independent firm of expert injury lawyers should guarantee you the maximum payout.

Avoid the insurance company solicitors!!! They will pay an insurance company anywhere up to £800 just to buy your case. This amount isn’t recoverable from the other side, meaning you are left with a cash strapped solicitor without the funds to fight as hard for a maximum payout than that of an independent lawyer you go direct to. Cut out the middle men – it’s often known as Legal Expense Insurance, or Motor Legal Protection.

Both the Law Society and the Bar Council recommended that referral fees be stopped, on the grounds that they have the potential to limit access to justice and reduce the quality of legal services on offer. So don’t just take our word for it!

Claims Management Companies – these are companies who will refer your claim over to one of their panel solicitors. They, of course, don’t do this for free. You will again be left with a solicitor with less money to spend on you and your claim; this leaves you with reduced service levels, and less money for your lawyer to fight harder for a maximum payout. Or they will charge you for it!
