Whiplash compensation lawyers

Any accident which takes place on a public highway or other public place can be termed a road accident. Obviously there is usually a vehicle of some sort involved, either colliding with another vehicle, or with a cycle, motorbike or pedestrian for example.

From 31st May 2021 in England and Wales, new rules will come into force which will affect how some road accident claims are dealt with. The rules will affect you if you have a:

  1. Whiplash claim
  2. Claim where the value of the injuries is no more than £5,000
  3. All other Road Traffic Accident (RTA) related claims

Our specialist lawyers will be able to advise you on these changes.
