Chesterfield, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 17, 2008 -- There has been some considerable debate recently about insurance companies contacting individuals recently involved in a car accident and asking them to accept an offer for their injury, mostly neck injuries also known as whiplash injury. The reason behind the speediness of the insurance companies to act is if they get to the injured party earlier enough the can offer a below-the-norm payment than say if the person were to seek out a professional injury lawyer to process the claim for them.
Tempting as it may seem to take that cheque from the insurance company especially with today's financial environment sending costs spiralling. However, we would advise people who have been involved in a road accident and have been contacted by their insurance company offering them a settlement to take a second thought before signing any document. There are alternatives online to calculate just how much you would really receive for your whiplash injury compensation claim.
The Whiplash Claims Calculator is designed just for this purpose to allow people who have unfortunately suffered an injury in a road accident to evaluate how much their claim is worth. By simply feeding the information of the events of the accident into the calculator you can have a greater insight into what your whiplash claim is really worth.
Understanding that the insurance companies rapid response in offering you a payment is purely for their benefit and not yours is the first step. By using the whiplash claims calculator and getting a better estimation for your whiplash claim is your second step. Your third step is to contact a professional and responsible injury lawyer who deals with whiplash compensation claims to receive the maximum payment owed to you for your injuries.
