On Friday, I do have a troublesome neck...genuinely. It was caused by a Mitsubishi Shogun loosing control on spilled diesel on the road and crashing into my car, writing it off.
It pushed me up the kerb along the grass verge and back on to the road, and covered me in glass.

At 6.15 today I shall attend the medical practice to see a neck specialist. I intend to push this until I receive adequate compensation from whoever is deemed culpable, diesel does not belong on the highway.
I WILL resort to using a claims firm if necessary.
All of us pay high premiums because of scurrilous claims, I now have the opportunity to redress that somewhat and I am going to take it, with a genuine claim.

Well said, Dordie. Much as I loathe the companies who do "ambulance chasing" and try to pester people into making false claims, if you do have whiplash then it will require some physiotherapy and inconvenience, and you have every right to be compensated for it.

The incident involved the Focus I bought 16 months ago, my new one was collected from Whitney on Saturday and is fine.

Well, Chris, my claim if successful can be off loaded by my...or his, insurance company on to the Highways authority whose task it is to provide safe roads.

I'm going through much the same, on 30th January a drunk driver rear ended me in the firm's van near the Blackwall Tunnel, I'm still in pain even after four Physiotherapy sessions, I have another two booked, the other guy's insurance have already admitted liability and now my Solicitor is trying to get the best deal for me.

It's confirmed I have whiplash but it will dissipate of its own accord in time. I am not like Nick, who likes to oggle the females who will 'manipulate' him :D

Have you seen the size of those females?

I was offered 1250.00 plus all treatment paid for but was advised to refuse this.

My youngest daughter (who you have met) got about 4,000 for whiplash some years ago. A lorry went into the back of her car. It took quite a while for the cash to come through...about 2 years I think.

Average I believe is about 3000 - 4000

The one thing is that no matter what treatment you get doesn't help :-)

I have been quoted a sum approaching that.

The solicitors dealing with my case are named Mitchell, so I know I am in good hands. w:1

I don't know how bad it is Dords..............but don't expect it to be too soon. Hopefully it will be for you
but my sister in law still suffers from it 20 years after the accident she was in.

I can live with it in its present form.
