Generally, how much will an insurance company pay for a whiplash injury?
If you are in an automobile accident and suffering from whiplash, you’re probably wondering how you are going to be compensated for your injury. The amount of money that an insurance company will pay for a whiplash injury depends on several factors: the severity of your injury, whether or not you received medical treatment, and how this injury affected your daily activities, such as going to work. This compensation can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand if you are unable to go perform the functions of your job or have to seek medical and/or chiropractic attention. Insurance companies will generally pay much more if you immediately sought medical attention after the injury, document that you were unable to perform the duties of your job, and have sought the services of a lawyer to protect your interests in a whiplash injury case. If you have suffered whiplash from an accident, be sure to document every aspect of how the injury affects your life in order to receive the best compensation from insurance companies.
