Britain has more claims for whiplash than anywhere else in Europe. The often question is, “How much is my whiplash claim worth?”
Road Traffic Accidents have decreased by 23% but claims for Road Traffic Accidents have increased by 70% and it is also suggested that over the last 5 years, the number of fraudulent claims has also increased.
A recent report into whiplash claims explained that if we continue to work closley with the Insurance Industry that we will be on our way to tackling fraudulent whiplash claims, and on top of this to reducing young driver premiums.
Building what is currently being done and what has already been done, by banning referral fees, reforming no-win no fee rules and cracking down on fraud is being done to drive down motor insurance.
A person seeking to claim compensation for a whiplash injury must be examined by an independent panel of Doctors/GP’s employed by Medical Reporting Organisations.
To combat fraudulent claims tougher guidance for Doctors’ diagnosis might be needed.
Whiplash claims cost around £90 per year on every car insurance policy.
TOO MANY claims are settled out of court becuase it’s cheaper.
The AA said that, over the past two years, claims for whiplash injury contributed to the biggest car insurance premium increases ever recorded. The cost of whiplash payouts is driving up the cost of insurance.
The First thing is for you to seek an Injury Specialist to assess your injuries and determine if you have or have not sustained injuries.
This should be done within 48 hours of the crash.
The most common symptoms involved in Whiplash are:
→ Neck Pain
→ Shoulders/Upper Back
When reporting to your Dr, take extra care to identify specific complaints, take with you a list of all complaints. If something does not feel “right” your Doctor needs to have this information in order to render an informed medical opinion
After the accident, you need to obtain as many details from the other driver as possible
This should include:
• Contact details;
• Registration number; and
• Insurance company.
You must then report the accident to your own Insurance company and, if you or your vehicle has suffered damage, to the Police.
This will ensure you get the appropriate treatment for your injuries.
→ Was the other party to blame?
→ Did they cause you to suffer Whiplash?
