Whiplash Claims

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by the sudden movement of the head, occurring in one-quarter of all road traffic accidents. Victims may notice the signs and symptoms of whiplash immediately after an accident, but in some cases, the onset may take several hours. For this reason, it is always important to be checked by a medical professional if you have been involved in a vehicle accident, even if you initially feel fine. The pain, headaches, and muscle spasms commonly associated with whiplash injuries typically lift within a few days or weeks. In some cases, however, long-term damage to health can result; this is called ‘chronic whiplash’.

Chronic whiplash can lead to a wide range of medical conditions, including:

  • Pain, numbness, weakness, or stiffness in the legs, arms, back, or shoulders
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Severe headaches
  • Neurological problems
  • Osteoarthritis

If you have suffered serious whiplash-related health problems due to the negligence of another person, Blue Cross Helpline will help you bring a claim for compensation for:

  • Financial costs and expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain, suffering, and loss
  • The cost of future rehabilitation, treatment, and care
  • Equipment and home modifications

Car Accidents

Last year, 25,945 people were seriously injured in road accidents, and 1,752 were killed.

  • Damage to joints

Car accidents don’t just cause physical injuries; it is common for victims to suffer serious psychological effects, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression.

As a result of severe injuries, victims of vehicle accidents often require emergency surgery, hospital treatment, physiotherapy, and long-term rehabilitation. In some cases, they may never recover normal function, leaving them unable to care for themselves and their family, or work.

Accidents on Public Transport

As users of public transport, we all trust that everything has been done to ensure our safety. Unfortunately, accidents on public transport happen frequently, and in some cases, victims can be seriously injured. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident on public transport, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation. To claim compensation, there must have been an error by another person or company which led to the accident happening. This might include:

  • Speeding and poor driving
  • Poor maintenance
  • Failure to prevent luggage from falling
  • Not providing sufficient safety equipment
  • Failure to prevent violence by other passengers
  • Failure to make wet or dangerous surfaces safe
  • Failure to follow safety guidelines.

Blue Cross Helpline can handle all aspects of bringing a claim for compensation. We will take the time to listen to the details of your accident and confirm if you have a valid claim. If you do, we will work tirelessly to ensure you receive financial compensation for:

  • Financial costs and expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain, suffering, and loss
  • The cost of future rehabilitation, treatment, and care
  • Equipment and home modifications

Motorbike Accident Claims

Even at moderate speeds, as riders are directly vulnerable to impact, motorbike accidents can lead to serious and life-long injuries. If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a motorbike accident due to an error (negligence) of another person, we will help you secure compensation for your losses. Your accident may be due to:

  • Poorly maintained roads (e.g. resulting in your hitting large pothole)
  • Obstructions in road
  • Failure by other road users to pay due care and attention (e.g. if they were using their mobile phone)
  • Speeding by other motorists
  • Poor motorbike maintenance leading to a mechanical failure

Physical injuries resulting from motorbike accidents may include serious lacerations, broken bones, damage to the spine, back, and neck, head injuries, chest injuries, loss of consciousness, and whiplash. Not all motorbike accident injuries are physical, however; it is common for victims to suffer long-term psychological harm, including post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression. Serious head injuries can also lead to brain damage, potentially causing loss of consciousness and loss of mental function, including memory loss.

If you have suffered serious health problems in a motorbike accident which was the result of the negligence of another person, Blue Cross Helpline can help you bring a claim for compensation for:

  • Financial costs and expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain, suffering, and loss
  • The cost of future rehabilitation, treatment, and care
  • Equipment and home modifications

Pedestrian Accident Claims

Given the lack of protection available, pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to road users in the event of an accident. Approximately one pedestrian per day is killed each day, and 14 are seriously injured. Pedestrian accidents may occur due to:

  • Lack of due care and attention by road users, including vehicle drivers, motorbike riders, and cyclists.
  • Alcohol-impaired drivers
  • Motorists speeding
  • Not providing adequate safety protection around road works
  • Insufficient illumination
  • Poor pavement surfacing

Pedestrians involved in road traffic accidents often receive serious injuries, including injuries to the back, head, neck, chest, and limbs. Brain injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents can lead to loss of function, sometimes requiring continuous care and rehabilitation.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured as a pedestrian, you can bring a claim for compensation if the accident was the fault of another person. Blue Cross Helpline work with expert personal injury Solicitors who will handle the process for you, and will help you to recover compensation for:

  • Financial costs and expenses
