Our client was driving in Seaford when the defendant pulled out of a street and collided with our client’s correctly proceeding vehicle.
As a result of the collision, our client suffered from a personal injury.
Due to the incident our client received: exacerbation of an existing back problem, soft tissue injury to their hip and arm and whiplash.
How Hayward Baker Helped:
One of our Personal Injury Specialists Ria Tallack made the claim through the low value Road Traffic Accident insurer’s online portal.
The defendant’s insurer responded after studying the claim, and told Ria that liability was admitted on behalf of their insured.
A medical report was then obtained from a General Practitioner to show that our client’s injuries were caused by the accident.
A schedule of special damages (out of pocket expenses) was drafted by Ria to account for: our client’s prescription charges, travel expenses and care and assistance around the home for a period of 10 weeks.
Once Ria had sufficient medical evidence and full details of all of our client’s losses due to the accident, she negotiated a fair settlement.
This included compensation for our client’s injuries and an amount for other out of pocket expenses.
As a result, our client’s claim was finally settled in full for £3,215.
