How much compensation for whiplash? £2,700 (10 months Whiplash injury)
A child whiplash injury claim was made by a schoolgirl aged 10 years. She was a back seat passenger in a car driven by her friend’s mother who picked her up after school.
The schoolgirl was wearing a seat belt at the time of the road traffic accident as where the other occupants of the car, her friend, 9 years old at the time, was also sitting in the back of the car and her friend’s mother was driving the vehicle.
Whilst the car came to a halt at the traffic lights, she was just to put the car into first gear when her car was hit from behind by a van. The force of the car crash claim jolted all of the occupants in the vehicle which resulted in whip lash injury claims to all three.
As the van driver admitted liability for the whiplash injury and road traffic claim the solicitors submitted a personal injury claim against the van driver which was ultimately settled by his car insurance company.

- School girl whiplash injury claim – 9 months
