Miss H from London was travelling as a passenger in a taxi on the M1 motorway when another vehicle collided with the side of the taxi in which Miss H was travelling causing her a soft tissue injury to her middle and lower back.
Hayward Baker Solicitors acted for Miss H in her claim for personal injury compensation. Hayward Baker notified the Defendants insures of the accident and it was not long before they came back regarding their position on liability. As there was no doubt that the accident had occurred and that as Miss H was a passenger in a taxi involved in a road traffic accident she could not have been at fault and liability for the accident was admitted.
Hayward Baker arranged an appointment for Miss H to see a medical Consultant who would examine Miss H and write a report on her injuries. The consultant reported that Miss H’s injuries were consistent with the accident circumstances and once approved by Miss H the report was sent to the Defendant insurers asking that they make an offer in settlement of the claim for compensation.
Miss H subsequently received an offer which she agreed to and was awarded just under £3,000.00 in compensation for her injuries suffered as a result of the accident.
