Whiplash compensation guide: I have suffered neck pain symptoms lasting a year and a half following a road traffic accident which was not my fault.
Whiplash Compensation Solicitor Response
There are two guides a road accident solicitor will use to provide a whiplash compensation guide for neck injury symptoms following a RTA, which include:
1. The Judicial Guidelines provide a general UK whiplash compensation guide to the amount you can claim
The Judicial guidelines provide an estimate of a range of values awarded by the courts over the last year for pain and suffering in whiplash claims. For a 1 – 2 year whiplash with symptoms fully resolved, in 2017 you can expect to receive £3,600 – £6,600.
2. Whiplash claims previously decided in cases before the courts can provide an accurate UK whiplash compensation guide as to the amount you can claim
A road accident solicitor can use case law as a more accurate estimate to calculate how much you can receive for your individual whiplash claim in the UK.
Your RTA lawyer will make a note of all the symptoms of your whiplash injury you suffer and any other symptoms, such as psychological injury, and search for a similar claims decided by the courts in the past to act as a guide as to the amount of whiplash compensation you should receive.

Exactly how long have your whiplash injury symptoms lasted?
You have said that your symptoms lasted a year and a half – but is this correct and can it proved?
Remember any ongoing intermittent symptoms can still be considered part of your whiplash injury and you must report these symptoms to your GP to ensure that they are correctly documented.

If you can prove that your whiplash symptoms lasted a year and a half with a complete recovery – your compensation claim for whiplash is worth approximately £4,000 in 2010.
