Hayward Baker’s client was a passenger in his friend’s car travelling along Norwich Road in Norfolk.
A car travelling in the opposite direction then decided to turn right across their path and our client’s driver could not avoid a collision. As a result, the two vehicles hit each other.
Our client received whiplash injuries to his neck, shoulders and lower back, in addition to headaches, a seat belt injury and travel anxiety.
How Hayward Baker Helped:
One of our personal injury specialists Jodie Longstaff took on this case on a no-win-no-fee basis. As the claim was of low value, Jodie made the claim to the defendant insurers through the Low Value Personal Injury Claims Portal.
Liability was then admitted as expected as it was highly unlikely that a passenger in a motor vehicle would be to blame for the accident.
No medical report was required as the defendant insurers made a pre-medical report offer to settle the claim for £1,500.
After Jodie fully explained to our client about the pros and cons of accepting the offer, he decided to accept the sum and settle his claim immediately.
Our client received £1,500 as a full and final settlement.
