When you pursue a claim for whiplash compensation, it is advisable for you to visit an independent medical expert, who will assess your injuries and prepare a report. The report will contain a reference to any additional treatment you may require to aid recovery, plus a prognosis estimating how long that recovery will take.

If the medical expert deems your injuries to be unrecoverable, the report will highlight this and clearly explain if a second appointment is required before making a final diagnosis. If this is the case, you should be patient here – if you settle a claim too early and then go on to suffer from your injuries long-term, you would not be able to ‘re-claim’ for further damages.
