Whiplash compensation.

#1
The Misses had a prang over the weekend, not her fault and other person has claimed full responsability.

So far she has been offered £700, £1000 and now £1350 to settle. They saying that £1350 is the final offer.

Should we call it there or go for a medical etc.

That depends, has she been injured in a way that is actually costing her money and requires compensation? Or are you just a pair of money grabbing parasites? This crash didn't happen in Liverpool by any chance?

Naahhh, go all the way, the insurance companies have not spent a lot of time and money developing ways of detecting faked whiplash injuries. Worlds your Oyster, you go girl....etc

We had just dropped off sister-in-law at LAX and were heading back up the 101 for home. Traffic came to a stop, but the guy behind us didn't. His insurance sent us an unsolicited cheque for $250 in "full and final settlement" about a week later. I sent it back. Keeping it short, I had C5/C6 damage (X-Rays, MRIs the whole bit) and got a lawyer referred through my job.

Six months later, they paid up $50k (net after lawyer fees deducted). They had paid for the car repair up front.

Tell them to poke it. I'm in line for 3 grand for walking into a glass door that didn't have a "This is a glass door" sticker. I suffered only a broken snout.

You should be grateful she's not in a coma or worse.

Mongs like you ensure that we all pay more each year for our insurance.

Who is "they"?

The driver, the insurance company (or the one he has not got/does not want to tell?)

In any event you must notify your own insurer: read the T&C and you will find that you (the insured) must not agree anything without their consent.

I got 9 grand from the insurers when some cnut rear ended me . However the last 20 years of sore neck and back wernt worth it . I got best part of 20 grand from my company as a payoff because we did dint know how long i would be off for .In the end it were 6 months and cost a fortune in back specialists and Spanish holidays .
