    Whiplash compensation - Fair Amount? 17th Dec 07 at 5:27 PM
    My girlfriend was invlolved in an accident recently. A small van hit her from behind as she was waiting to pull out at a roundabout. She wasn't hit at high speed, but did suffer whiplash which was confirmed by her GP. She had a couple of days off work (should have been more but she was in the middle of a two week handover on a new job) and had discomfort when sitting and trying to sleep for about a fortnight.

    She recived a call from the insurer offerring her 500 compensation for the whiplash (they haven't seen any medical notes etc as she didn't go to their GP) She told them she'd get back to them and this is why i'm posting here. Neither her nor I know anyone who has had compensation for this before so was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.

    I think it might be worth a bit more just on the basis that this is their 1st offer and she hasn't threatened any legal action.

    Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
