Whiplash compensation injury claims: please can you tell me what types of compensation my family and I can claim as part of a UK road traffic acident claim?

Whiplash compensation injury claims: I was driving the family car at around 30 miles an hour with my wife and two children as passengers, when a car pulled out from a side road to my my left hitting my car.

The police attended and the driver of the other vehicle was found to be over the limit.

Thankfully we were all wearing seatbelts, but each of us suffered quite severe whiplash and several other injuries. We have incurred a lot of financial expense as a result of the accident and our injuries.

The insurer of the driver at fault has accepted legal responsibility.

1. Physical injury can form part of your UK whiplash compensation injury claims

You family can claim not only for your whiplash neck injuries, but also for all the other physical injuries you have suffered. Be careful to report all your injuries to your GP and keep a record of all your symptoms.

2. Psychological injury can form part of your family's whiplash compensation injury claims

Road traffic accidents - especially sudden violent ones as yours was, can cause at the very least symptoms of shock, but quite often can lead to much worse psychological injuries. 

Children and women are more prone to suffer psychological injury in a collision than men and in the extreme cases post traumatic stress can develop - symptoms may include: sleepless nights, fear of travelling in a car, irritation, mood swings, anti social behaviour, etc.

Psychological injury can be as damaging if not more damaging than the physical symptoms. Once again it is important your inform your GP of any symptoms and seek treatment as soon as possible.
