Accordingly, Jayne braked in order to stop in the queue of traffic and as she did so the driver in the vehicle behind her, who had failed to brake in time, collided with the rear of Jayne's vehicle.

Jayne was not immediately aware of receiving any injuries in the accident. However, the day after the accident Jayne became aware of pain in her neck and lower back and went to see her GP for advice. Jayne's GP diagnosed a whiplash injury and prescribed painkillers and gentle mobility exercises.

Jayne decided to look into making a claim for compensation for the injuries she had sustained. She contacted 1stClaims and provided them with the full details of the circumstances of the accident and her injuries. 1stClaims assured Jayne that she would be contacted very soon by a 1stClaims solicitor and, the next day, Jayne did indeed receive a call from the 1stClaim expert whiplash claim solicitor who talked her through the process of making a claim and advised her how much compensation she may be entitled to receive.

The 1stClaims solicitor began settlement negotiations with the third party's insurers and, just 12 months after the accident, Jayne received £1900 compensation for the injuries and losses she sustained as a result of the accident.

There were no issues surrounding liability and we were able to secure for our client a settlement of £3500.

Read More

In the case of whiplash injury it's important to get a medical diagnosis as soon as possible after the accident; not only will help your claim it will also mean that you can begin treatment as soon as possible but it will help you achieve a quicker recovery.

£2500 Mr L, Wantage

Our client was involved in a rear end shunt following which he suffered from whiplash injury that required ongoing physiotherapy. Mr L was a high-ranking junior golfer and unfortunately missed out on several competitions and a possible England call up due to his injuries.

Read More

Following the accident the Third Party at fault attempted to deal directly with Mr L, even though 1st Claims were already involved in his case. He was offered £800 plus costs but we advised him to turn the offer down.

The claim resulted in a total payment of £2500 to Mr L who is expected to make a full recovery following treatment.

£2400 - Miss C, Maesteg

Our client was involved in a rear end shunt that lead to soft tissue injury to the neck and back. After being diagnosed with a whiplash injury Miss C has been advised to undertake a course of physiotherapy and she is expected to make a full recovery in between 6 to 9 months.

Read More

The third party responsible for the collision initially offered our client £1350. We advised her not to accept this offer and, after issuing court proceedings, the settlement was increased to £2400.

The case brings to light two very important factors in whiplash claims. Firstly, it is important to receive a proper medical diagnosis as soon as possible after the accident. Not only will this ensure that your recovery begins immediately (quick treatment often results in a far quicker recovery) it will also help the legitimacy of your claim.

Secondly, whatever settlement is offered by the third party responsible for the accident, it is worth seeking independent advice from a claims expert such as 1stClaims. We can often seek - and win - far greater damages than initially offered.

Mr M, Oxford, £1800

Our client was involved in a low speed accident when another car pulled out in front of him on a roundabout. He suffered minor soft tissue injury to the neck and back.

Mr B, Telford, £2750

Our client was involved in a car accident as a passenger and suffered whiplash - thankfully he made a full recovery within 9 months.

Read More

He was initially offered £1550 as compensation; however, our expert whiplash solicitor advised him to reject the offer and seek more substantial damages including loss of earnings, loss of gym membership and travel costs. This resulted in a much higher settlement that took full account of the impact of the whiplash injury he suffered.

£3440 - Mrs S, Sheffield

Our client and her young son were involved in a road traffic accident when a car pulled out from a side road into their path. She sought medical attention immediately and was found to have minor soft tissue injury to the neck and private physiotherapy was arranged through Stepped Care.

Read More

Whiplash Compensation Doubled whilst car parked Case Studies

Offer of £1,350 Increased to £2,700 Plus Interest at Hearing - Ms L, Chester.

Our client was involved in a rear end shunt collision. She sustained a soft tissue injury to her neck and back and had 8 weeks off work. The 1stClaims solicitor arranged private physiotherapy treatment to help Ms L's recovery.

Read More

After medical examination a prognosis was given for a full recovery in 5 months after the accident. An offer was received for £1350 which Ms L was advised to reject. The insurers refused to increase from their very low offer so court proceedings were issued. An offer made by our solicitors to them was rejected, so when a settlement hearing took place and our solicitors obtained an award of compensation of twice the initial offer, not only was Ms L awarded interest on top of the £2,700 but the other side were also ordered to pay additional legal costs as a consequence of not making a reasonable offer to settle.
