£70 call out for what?

If you are (genuinely) claiming, call your insurance company and tell themyou want to claim for personal injury (assuming you have the correct policy). They will do the rest

yes - you will get a bill for the treatment following a road traffic collision

Oh yes, the old car crash = whiplash thingy. You scamming liars make me feel sick.

I'd assume that the guilty party's insurance company will pick this up (again, assuming they have insurance)

thats what i thought they said its call out charge think they said something about nhs? i was alittle out of it that night but i can remember him saying that

i have whiplash and in a fair bit of pain and my partner also has neck pain but ok to work we both been to the docs today

i went through this last year - was hit by a student letching at some fit lass walking up the street and went into the back of me last June .. i got paid out in November.. but i needed physio treatment on my back which delayed it somewhat !

so would i have to forward this bill to insurance due to it being is fault?

It'll probably be a few weeks before the bill arrives in the meantime contact your insurance claims department and get ready for a happy time. Remember the crash caused you no end of pain, you now have developed a dodgy wink after the lollipop that was on the floor bounced up and hit you in an eye. Your favourite Max Bygraves CD is now broken, and as it is a rare and only copy you want another £500 for that.

Oh yeah if the other driver wasn't insured don't worry the insurance bureau will cough up, because we all on average pay an extra £30 per year to cover scams and non insured drivers

People can get whiplash from being hit by cars you know - it is possible.

NHS don't care how it's paid - as long as it's paid...
I sent mine to the guy who hit me and told him to get it sorted!

I take it your car was moving when the other car hit?

I dont think a scammer would need to ask the likes of caring souls such as yourself...let's hope you don't get hit and suffer months of neck and back pain!!

I had a cycle collision with a car a couple of weeks ago. Just got the "witness report" document from the police to fill in.

States on the booklet that came with it that it can be one of three types of incident. No injury, serious injury or fatality. In your case (no injury), like mine, the police should give you the insurance details of the other driver and you then have to go through a civil action to get any compensation.

I'm supposing the police were called and attended the scene?

Took me 3 years to get claim money and that was after having my face burst open from skelping it off the steering wheel after being battered at high speed from behind. Not to mention the whiplash and the physio. Even then it was £600 lol.......I accepted it because I didn't want to take the mick, I thought that was fair, I mean if he had battered me in the street and done the same damage he would have been told to pay less compensation so I figured I had a good deal. Still got the scar though on my lip from putting my teeth through it.....that was lovely, being unable to eat properly and drinking through a straw because my lip was wide open, mmmmm the memories, quasimodo had nothing on me, and according to some of the people on here still doesnt lol.

Just fire the NHS bill to your insurers they will deal with it as and when they see fit, some are quick, some take years.

I was in an accident the driver who hit us didnt stop even thou half his car was attached to ours
That was 10 years ago I wouldnt say I had a 'serious' injury but it really did hurt for two weeks i'd be suprised if your a FLT driver your work would allow you to work if you have any restricted movement.My opinion is its not your fault your genuinely injured and unable to work so why should you be out of pocket

You're on a forum asking abouting claiming compensation just 2 days after an accident, so clearly you are out to claim. I'm not saying you're not injured and don't deserve to be compensated, but you can't really say you're not out to claim when that's exactly what you're asking about.

your own car insurance may have a legal service, or I bought into one for £40 on mine after an accident, then you get a no win no fee solictor doing their stuff. Actually I had another two solicitors chasing me for business too - one from the hire car people as they get commission. I didn't claim for injury but did for the car as we were rear ended at a t junction. I felt too ill to be bothered, although after a couple of weeks was back to normal. A mates ex got £5000 for whiplash, she wore a neck collar for several months, but recovered the day the cheque arrived.

Oh dear.

If you've been in an accident thats not your fault - your details will be sold (by your insurers) to lots of companies hoping to make money out of your crash. You'll get offers from hire car companies, repair companies and of course the ambulance chasers. So basically if you wait, you'll be contacted. The important thing is that your injury has been documented and your GP will also be very happy to confirm this in writing to your insurance or claim company because your GP gets paid to write this report.......

I'd recommend you ring Fentons who are a very good no win no fee specialist in Personal injury....don't be in a rush for a quick settlement as the longer it takes the longer you have to assess how it has effected you in the subsequent months and if it will still effect you in the future.

No one is blaming you for claiming...just saying that you responded to jonny by saying 'not everyone out to claim', thats normally a statement that someone who ISN'T claiming, would make. You're claiming and from what you've said, you've every right to. Just chill a bit...take some more painkillers and go and have a lie down!

I'm more confused about this nhs call out fee? I was in a collision with a tractor while on a push bike. A paramedic was dispatched and then an ambulance with a suspected burst aorta lol so someone explain it. I didn't pay anything.

its a charge for people with insurance, not cyclists. NHS bills insurance company for ambulance etc.

My insurance paid £350 for an ambulance call out when I had my accident, dont know if rates vary on severity or on who/what comes out and for how many people. I don't blame the NHS for billing insurance companies, to be honest apart from the fact I looked like an extra from a horror film I didn't need it, I would much rather have not wasted the paramedics time. I could easily have taken myself off to hospital if required once they had managed to remove the other car from my wee car's boot !!!

not happy driver of other car saying a different story now

Not every claim of whiplash is fraudulent - the fact that scammers like to claim for it does not magically secure your head in a crash. Back pain is the most common form of disability benefits fraud - does not mean back injuries do not exist.

I believe the OP as he clearly also has a concussion given the numerous spelling and grammar errors in his post ;-)
