Claim for Whiplash

Solicitors specialising in whiplash compensation claims

Whiplash injuries to the neck and back are the most common form of injuries sustained in road traffic accidents. These injuries range from minor injuries from which clients make a swift recovery within days or weeks of the accident, to the serious, which may result in permanent health issues.

It is often crucial that these injuries are treated as quickly as possible by the use of physiotherapy or other forms of treatment. LWR are able to organise such treatment where necessary wherever in the UK you are located.

LWR were one of the earliest members of the Motor Accidents Solicitors Society (MASS) and have handled many thousands of road traffic accident claims, successfully recovering compensation for clients and organising rehabilitative treatment where necessary, including:

  • Claims on behalf of drivers and passengers in cars
  • Claims on behalf of passengers travelling on public transport
  • Claims to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) involving uninsured motorists
  • Claims on behalf of children
  • Accidents involving pedestrians
  • Cases involving brain injury and spinal injuries
  • Accidents involving motorcyclists
  • Accidents involving cyclists

We will contact the other driver or their insurance company direct. We will then obtain medical evidence on your behalf before negotiating with the insurers with a view to settling your claim and recovering compensation together with costs on your behalf. If the other driver is uninsured then you may have a claim via the MIB. We will liaise with the MIB on your behalf in such circumstances.

If you have a claim or would like to have advice about a possible claim, contact us and ask for a member of the personal injury team. We will advise you as to whether you have a claim  and in appropriate cases, we can act for you on a no win no fee basis. If after talking to us you decide not to go ahead with a claim, you are under no obligation to do so and we will not charge for our initial advice session. We're based in the North East, but act for clients across the country as well as those in Sunderland, Newcastle and the northern region.
