What are the compensation options available to you in the event of a whiplash injury?
The legal system in Canada understands the difficulties a person encounters after a whiplash injury. This is why it has made a number of compensation options available to people who successfully file a claim
- Coverage for loss of income
- Coverage for medical expenses
- Monetary support for disability (permanent or partial)
- Physical therapy
Note that when you combine all these expenses then it can add up to a significantly large amount. So, when you file a claim, the insurance companies will look for an out of court settlement for a small compensation that may not be sufficient to cover your expenses.
Remember while the courts do give you an option to claim compensation, it is your responsibility to prove your injury to the court.
What can you do to claim the best compensation for whiplash injuries?
The first step is to choose the best personal injury lawyer to represent you. The lawyer should have solid experience in dealing with whiplash injury cases. Your personal injury lawyer will take care of the necessary documentation and testimonials to prove the severity of your injury to the court. In cases like these, a good personal injury lawyer will be aware of all the laws regarding the benefits extended to a person with a whiplash injury so that the insurance companies don’t trick you into settling for an unfairly small amount.
The need for the best lawyer to argue your cases increases when the cause of the injury is the negligence of a third party. Here the third party will try to get your claim disproved because they would face legal consequences otherwise. With an expert lawyer representing you, the defendant or insurance company lawyers will realize that they can’t use bullying tactics but will have to arrive at a fair settlement.
Would definitely prefer Claim Settlement’s professional team again. They are very caring and the lawyer they connected me with was very experienced.

Without Claim Settlement, my recovery wouldn’t be the same way it is today, I wouldn’t be getting better. They ensured that I got connected to the best legal and medical team.
