Our client was waiting in a queue of traffic on a slip road when the Defendant failed to stop.
As a result, the Defendants vehicle collided with the rear of our client’s stationary vehicle, and this meant that our client suffered from a whiplash injury.
Soft tissue injury to our client’s neck and back.
How Hayward Baker Helped:
Our personal injury specialist Gary Lee decided to take on this case, which was agreed to be on a no win no fee basis to benefit the client as much as possible.
As this was a low value road traffic accident case, the claim was made through the Low Value Personal Injury Accident Portal. The defendant insurers then investigated the claim and admitted liability on behalf of their insured.
Gary arranged for our client to be examined by a medical expert, which in this instance was a General Practitioner. The medical evidence allowed Gary to prove that our client’s injuries were caused by the accident, and this helped in valuing the claim.
After the first medical report was received the expert recommended that our client went through a course of physiotherapy to help with his recovery, and the Defendant Insurers offered to fund this.
The medical report allowed Gary to accurately value the claim in order to make sure that our client received the correct amount of compensation.
In addition to compensation for our client’s injuries, a claim was also made for out of pocket expenses which included loss of earnings, travel and medical expenses.
The claim was settled thanks to Gary’ s dedication and legal knowledge, and our client received £3,000 in compensation.
