Whiplash injury claims
3 minute read
If you have been the victim of a car or road accident, either as a driver or passenger and suffered personal injuries or trauma such as whiplash, back injuries, neck injuries or head injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. A whiplash injury claims lawyer can advise you on your rights and the legal options available to you following an accident on the road.
What can my whiplash injury claim recover compensation for?
our whiplash injury claim typically covers all of your physical and psychological injuries and losses, including past and future costs or expenses related to your injury.
Some examples of the things you might be able to claim include:
Medical, rehabilitation and hospital expenses
Loss of earnings
Pain and suffering
Loss of enjoyment of life
Home help and nursing provided by anyone, paid or unpaid, if it meets certain conditions.
For many people, the insurer will agree to pay some or all costs for your ongoing treatment, so that you’re not out of pocket while you’re waiting for the claim to be finalised.

What happens in a car accident without insurance?
Depending on the state the accident occurred in and the specific injuries or damage that occurred, Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP) might be a possible course of action. Due to the complexity of each claim, we recommend speaking to one of our car accident experts to find out your options.
Who pays me the car accident compensation?
In most situations, it’s the insurance company of the driver or entity at fault that will pay the compensation to you following your car accident. The insurance company deals with everything, so the driver or party at fault won’t have to pay out of their own pocket either.
