Below are answers to questions regarding making a whiplash compensation through 5r1 Claims and its panel of whiplash compensation solicitors.
Whiplash Compensation Solicitors
As each claimant circumstances are individual. The 5r1 Claims panel of specialist whiplash compensation solicitors will assess each claim individually. The aim of each whiplash compensation solicitor is not only to maximise the whiplash injury compensation you receive but to also help you make the best possible recovery. The whiplash compensation solicitors will not just look at the current affects on your life but also the potential future health risks and financial losses will be assessed and a prognosis will be taken into account when calculating the compensation amount. Our specialist panel of whiplash compensation solicitors have experience in recovering:
What is a 'No Win No Fee' Whiplash Compensation Claim?
After the initial free claims assessment should your whiplash compensation claim be considered by our whiplash compensation solicitor, you can decide to instruct the personal injury claims solicitor on a 'no win no fee' basis. What this means is, if your personal injury claims solicitor wins your claim, the personal injury claims solicitor will recover you 100% compensation and the legal costs of your claim from the third party insurer / organisation. You will be paid 100% of the compensation that is recovered and the personal injury claims solicitor will be paid the legal fees. Should you lose your claim you will not pay your solicitors legal costs as the personal injury claims solicitor is working on a 'no win no fee' basis.
Also when the personal injury claims solicitor takes on your claim, the solicitor will cover the risk of you having to pay the other side’s fees. Therefore providing that you cooperate with the solicitor and do not provide misleading or fraudulent information, should you lose your claim you will have nothing to pay.
Types of Compensation Amounts for Whiplash Claims
Each claimant compensation circumstances are individual. The reason for this is when recovering whiplash compensation there are two types of damages the whiplash solicitor would be looking to recover.
Whiplash Compensation Amounts
Below is an approximate guideline of general damages. As special damages can differ based on the individuals circumstances for each whiplash compensation claim, these are calculated towards end of each claim and are not added to the figured mentioned below.
The above are only approximate guidelines and not all whiplash compensation solicitors will obtain the same amount of whiplash compensation as stated above.
Will I receive 100% whiplash compensation?
5r1 claims and its panel of whiplash compensation solicitors do not make deductions from a clients compensation. This means if your claim is successful you will keep 100% of your whiplash compensation.
Can I receive physiotherapy and private medical treatment, at no cost to me?
The aim of the whiplash compensation solicitor is not only to maximise the compensation you receive but to also help you make the best possible recovery. The whiplash compensation solicitor will have you examined by an independent medical expert and a report will be compiled about your injury. If your injury is still present at this stage, the independent expert may then recommend physiotherapy, private medical treatment or organise a future care plan. Providing the liability has been admitted by the third party insurer, your personal injury solicitor can negotiate that the cost of any current and future treatment is paid by the third party insurer.
Who pays the whiplash compensation solicitor's legal fees and 5r1 Claims?
As mentioned above you will not pay your whiplash compensation solicitor's legal fees should you lose your personal injury claim. If you win your claim the third party insurer or organisation will have to pay your solicitors legal fees as well as your compensation. In successful claims the 5r1 Claims panel of solicitors will pay a fee to 5r1 Claims, which covers the costs for the time spent dealing with your claim report, the referral of the claim and the marketing costs. Please be advised this fee is paid by the solicitor and is not recovered from either you or the other side.
What are the time limits to make a whiplash compensation claim?
The Limitation Act of 1980 specifies different periods of pursuing legal personal injury compensation claims. For example actions for damages in most personal injury claims for anyone who is 21 years of age or over, must be bought within three years of either the date when the accident occurred (this is usually when the personal injury is suffered), or within three years from 'date of knowledge', whichever is later. If the victim is under the age of 21, then he/she can claim for incidents that have occurred from birth onwards. This is due to the fact that anyone under the age of 18 will require a litigation friend (a parent or guardian) to represent the victim. In cases were the victims litigation friend has not logged a claim on behalf of the victim, by the time the victim has turned 18 years of age. Then the victim has three years starting from the 18th birthday in which to make a claim for accidents or medical negligence that might have occurred or been diagnosed from birth onwards. It is important that you seek legal advice as possible after an accident or medical negligence as a delay can jeopardise the chances of making a claim.
