Really the amount of compensation that is received for whiplash depends mainly on the severity of the whiplash injury itself.
If the injury is set to last for longer than 12 months then for obvious reasons the amount of compensation will likely be significantly higher than if you would recover within six months.
Minor (Whiplash) £1,000 – £7,000
Moderate (Whiplash) £3,500 – £25,000
Severe (Fractures to the neck) £12,000 – £250,000
It is not uncommon for sufferers of whiplash to receive compensation in the region of 10,000 GBP.
It is important however to note that the amount that you could receive will be dependent on the specific circumstances of your accident.
