We’ll also need to know how severe the injuries are and how the incident has impacted your life. Have you needed medical attention, rehabilitation or time off work for example?

Time limits

Whiplash and more serious neck injuries like all medical negligence and personal injury cases have strict time limits on making a claim, this is usually three years. It is therefore important that you seek immediate legal advice from an expert as soon as you are aware of an issue.
