Compensation for pre-existing condition aggravated by whiplash injury

Are you unsure about what to do if you have been in an accident that has aggravated a pre-existing condition? Typically a whiplash type injury will often aggravate similar previous injuries, chronic back and neck conditions, or long term problems.

So how do we prove what is related to an accident and how can we compensate you when some of your pain may be due to underlying conditions? How do we factor in that you may actually be suffering far worse because you have a pre-existing condition aggravated by whiplash injury?

Loss of overtime after suffering a whiplash injury

road traffic accident claims

Whilst people can still work with a whiplash injury, many will either voluntarily reduce their hours or stay off work completely depending on the severity of their injury. By working less, they obviously lose out financially.

But don’t worry because we can account for this when helping you with a whiplash claim, even accounting for lost overtime hours as a result of the accident or injury.

Should I put in a claim for simple whiplash?

road traffic accident claims

Why not? The insurance company you are probably pursuing for your vehicle damages are liable to cover you for injury as well. So if you didn’t claim then you are simply letting the insurers keep the money you are entitled to. When you think of it that way, it doesn’t make a great deal of sense to not claim, does it?

But there are other advantages and you should really ignore the media fuelled rubbish about a “compensation culture” and “whiplash epidemics”.

How much do I pay for my whiplash claim?

road traffic accident claims

The government seems obsessed with whiplash claims, and a lot of it stems from incessant moaning from the insurance industry who appear upset that they have to pay people money who make claims; despite the fact that they exist for that very reason.

Reading my opening statement, you may feel I am somewhat bitter or bias about the negativity that’s associated with whiplash claims. Well to be honest, I am! And with good reason!

So read on for info about how much you may have to pay and more importantly why you have to pay for your whiplash claim.

How to make a successful pothole claim

Making a successful pothole claim is not an easy thing to do. The law that applies when investigating and finding out whether you are entitled to compensation for a pothole accident is not on the side of the victim at all.

On top of that, courts generally do not like cases against the public sector, so even where we believe you have a genuine claim you may still not win.

This, of course, leaves the question: what’s the best way of making a successful pothole claim?

Can whiplash be delayed a couple of days?

The simple answer is yes – it can.

It’s actually very common to feel no symptoms on the actual day of an accident. The symptoms of whiplash will typically develop over the course of the 12-48 hours following the incident. Many people feel totally fine directly after the incident has occurred and then will wake up perhaps the next day or two days after with the pain and stiffness associated with whiplash injuries.

Can I claim wages for a whiplash injury?

In a claim for personal injury you are entitled to recover compensation for the pain and suffering caused, and for any losses and expenses incurred. The pain, suffering, and loss of amenity is often referred to as General Damages and the losses and expenses is often referred to as Special Damages.

Whilst Special Damages are never guaranteed and whilst they can be somewhat of a grey area, there is a general principle that you are entitled to recover compensation for any financial losses and expenses that are caused as a result of an accident. As such you can claim lost wages for whiplash injuries.

I got offered £500 for whiplash – should I take it?

I’m inclined to give you the first answer that popped in to my head, which was – NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!

The reason for this is that £500 for a whiplash claim is relatively small when compared to the average settlements and amounts that people can usually claim for. In reality the value of the claim is entirely down to the length and severity of your suffering, which is all determined using medical evidence. But let me tell you why I can suggest to you that £500 is relatively small for a whiplash settlement offer…

Whiplash claim fees capped at 25%

It’s common now for a law firm to take 25% of your whiplash claim payout if the case is successful. The government stopped lawyers recovering a Success Fee from the other side and this can now be taken from your payout; but it is capped at 25%.

So with the cap set at 25%, the market rate for lawyers has settled on 25% – but some lawyers are taking much more to cover additional fees, and some are demanding upfront payments too.

So what are your best options?
