Type of claim

Road traffic accidents are the main causes of accidents resulting in whiplash in Scotland. If you have experienced whiplash after a road traffic accident, we highly advise you to contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland, to get the highest compensation in the most stress-free and easy way.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck sprain or strain when the soft tissue of your neck is stretched or damaged. It is caused by sudden forceful movement of the head forwards, backwards or sideways. Whiplash can have an impact on your daily life, stopping you from performing your daily tasks. Whiplash effects are not usually felt straight away and can even occur 12-16 days after the accident occurs.

Common symptoms of whiplash

There is a range of things that an individual can experience after suffering from whiplash, the most common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck pain or tenderness
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Neck stiffness, difficulty to move the head around
  • Pain in your shoulder and arms

We advise that after suffering from whiplash, you should visit your GP or medical professional to help with your condition in the best way. Medical records are also a good way of gathering evidence to help back your case up and get the compensation that you deserve.

How to make a compensation claim

If you have suffered from whiplash due to a motoring accident, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland to come out with the best possible outcome for your case.

When making a claim is it important you prove you weren’t to blame for the accident. Our experienced solicitors will help access and investigate your medical records and assess your case. Evidence is also a very important part of the case as it increases the chances of a positive outcome.

Evidence to include:

  • Witness reports from anyone who may have surrounded the crime scene. They can be essential in proving that you were the victim in the accident. Never be shy to ask for witness reports from people surrounding the accident.
  • Pictures of the crime scene can be very helpful to get a better judgement of what happened during that time and can be very helpful when claiming compensation.
  • Videos of the crime scene can give a thorough view of what occurred, and the damages experienced.
  • We advise that it is helpful to try and recall the accident soon after it happens whilst it is still fresh in your mind.
  • Make sure to get the name and insurance details of the other driver, as well as the model and registration plate of the vehicle.

If involved in an accident, the driver must provide their details according to section 170 of the Road Traffic Act of 1988, if they fail to do so, they are breaking the law. If you cannot obtain the details of the other driver, we advise that you report the accident to the police to obtain a reference number.

In our experience, we found that the more detail of the accident and evidence you can provide, the stronger your case is, and therefore you are more likely to get higher compensation. Our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland will help you get the highest compensation for your case.

The time limit for making a claim

We advise that the time limit for making a compensation claim in Scotland is three years since the crime has occurred. We recommend that the earlier you make your claim the better. If you would like to make a successful whiplash claim, we advise you to contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland now.
