Whiplash Compensation in London
London compensation amounts are the same as anywhere else in the UK. There is a nationwide set of rulings that are applied to whiplash injury claims and can be broken down into two distinct parts. We will assess each part, and then look to claim back compensation for the following for you:
General Damages – This is compensation for the actual whiplash injury and is calculated using guidance from the Judicial Board Guidelines that are set out for the UK. These guidelines make suggested compensation amounts depending on how seriously injured you were in the car crash or road accident. The payouts will depend on other factors such as how long it took you to recover, and any pain and suffering.
Special Damages – When making a London Whiplash claim we can also help to recover and get payouts / payments for compensation relating to any out of pocket expenses. So for example, if you required expensive medical treatment, or loss of earnings for time of works, plus travel and associated care expenses. In simple terms, if we can prove that you or those close to you lost out financially due to your whiplash injury then our solicitors will look to get compensation for those amounts.
As a rough guide to whiplash injury compensation amounts please refer to the table below.

Do You Have Whiplash?
We are only able to seek compensation for people that are genuinely suffering with whiplash symptoms. In all cases we will advise that you seek a medical diagnosis, as it’s only possible to make a claim if the condition is validated by a doctor or medical expert.
Whiplash can affect different people in different ways. You might not be showing all of the symptoms so please read the following checklist to see if you could potentially look to seek compensation.
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Reduced movement of the neck
- Swelling or tenderness of the neck muscles
- Pins and needles
- Numbness or shooting pains in the arms or hands
- Muscle Spasms
- Blurred vision
In most cases it will take up to 12 hours for pain to develop after an accident, but for some people they might not realise that they have suffered until a longer period after the car accident.
A whiplash injury will typically occur when there is a sudden movement of the neck or head due to a high impact collision. The ligaments and tendons in the neck will be hurt, and will mean sometimes long-lasting pain. In most cases though the symptoms will subside, however, in all cases it should be possible to enter the legal process to get the justice that you deserve.
* Other costs could be payable.
