Personal Injury

Hello I'm John Bennett, I'm part of the Forbes personal injury team.

We claim compensation for people who have been injured in accidents.

We understand that if you suffer an injury it can be very difficult, not only can it affect your work it may affect your family, your friends.

Over the years we've claimed millions of pounds of compensation. That compensation can be used to help put your life back on track and improve your quality of life.

We'll give you straight forward practical advice. We'll guide you and support you through the process, every step of the way.

So if you have suffered an injury in an accident, please give us a call, don't worry about costs, it won't cost you anything, we do it on a no win no fee basis, that means if we win we claim our costs from the other party, if we lose we get nothing.

So if you've suffered an injury in a road traffic accident, in the street, at work or elsewhere, please give us a call or contact us via the website.

Our Personal Injury Whiplash Solicitors offer a free consultation for victims of whiplash injuries and handle whiplash compensation claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

A whiplash injury occurs when the soft tissue in the neck and spine is stretched as a result of the body being thrown in a sudden or forceful movement. The most commonly affected areas of a whiplash injury are the neck, back and shoulders. Symptoms of whiplash may include pain, dizziness, nausea, headaches and a feeling of pins and needles radiating down the arms or legs.

Whiplash injuries are most commonly caused in road traffic accidents. It is important to note though that a whiplash injury can be sustained in a very low impact collision, with speeds of only a few miles per hour.

Free Whiplash Claims Consultation from Forbes

If you suffered from whiplash injuries that were caused in a road traffic accident or by the fault of another person, please contact our Personal Injury Whiplash Solicitors for a free consultation. When we know the details about how your whiplash injuries occurred, we can advise you in relation to the prospects of success and the timescales for settlement and offer you a No Win No Fee arrangement to pursue your personal injury claim.

On the basis that your whiplash claim is accepted by our Solicitors, we will then file a claim to the third party's insurance company on your behalf. Once an admission of liability is obtained we will then arrange a medical appointment with one of our specialist panel experts to prepare a report detailing the injuries you have sustained. On the basis of the information in that report we will value your claim and arrange for you to attend to any rehabilitation recommended.

Whiplash Accident Claims Process

To value your compensation, our whiplash solicitors will use a guide called the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines to assess how much compensation should be awarded to you. We will then negotiate settlement on your behalf with the third party insurers or solicitors.

Once your claim is settled you will receive your compensation. We will then negotiate settlement of our costs direct with the third party insurers or solicitors.

It is important to note that there are strict time limits for making a personal injury claim for whiplash. It is necessary to start the claim within 3 years of the date of the accident to prevent your claim from becoming statute barred.

It also important to keep a note of any out of pocket expenses you have incurred as a result of your accident as these can be claimed back from the insurers also. They may include such things as lost earnings, policy excess, prescription or medication expenses and travelling expenses.

Our Whiplash Solicitors are happy to provide more information and guidance on claim terms, conditions and processes.
