Whiplash is the term that the legal industry uses to describe soft tissue injuries in and around the neck, shoulders and spine. It commonly occurs in car and road accidents, but can also be the result of any form of violent movement or sudden impact.
You will experience symptoms of pain and stiffness in the shoulders, neck, back, and arms, and will be severely restricted in your day to day movement. Sometimes the pain will not be immediately apparent and can manifest itself in the form of headaches. If you are experiencing these symptoms then you must firstly seek medical attention before being able to make a whiplash claim in Sunderland or anywhere else in the UK.
Whiplash Compensation Amounts
Whiplash compensation amounts will vary from person to person depending on the severity. As such it’s not possible for us to give accurate claim amounts until we have spoken to you, and we have received medical reports back. However, there are some rough UK guidelines that we can show you below which you could use as a guide to whiplash compensation claims.

How to claim for whiplash after a car accident is made simple with our lawyers, but as with all legal matters you need to make sure that the correct process is followed (which we will help you with every step of the way). Here are some guidelines to help you put together by our solicitors.
At the Time of the Car Accident
If you received medical attention then please ensure that you gather any medical records or documentation made at the time. Always ask for a doctor’s assessment, including records of any tests that were made. These are essential in making a claim for whiplash injury in Sunderland and elsewhere in the UK.
If the police were involved, then also make sure that you ask for them to also create and produce their own set of reports. You should call them if you did not receive anything. If any witnesses were present also make sure to take their details if you can, including photographic evidence.
After the Car or Road Accident
If you are still in pain then you must visit a doctor or hospital. We will always need a professional opinion and record when dealing with any whiplash injury claim in Sunderland.
You should also make sure that you inform your insurance company so that they know the circumstances and are able to open a claim file. Your insurance company will try and offer you a settlement. Our advice is that you don’t take their first offer, and instead let our solicitors act on your behalf to help you get what you deserve.
