Our client was a rear seat passenger in a vehicle driven by her partner. The defendant vehicle was travelling in the opposite carriageway heading towards our client, without warning the defendant vehicle veered into our client’s lane. Although our client’s driver took evasive action the defendant vehicle collided with the offside of our client’s vehicle.
As a result of this road traffic collision our client suffered injury and loss.
Our Client’s Injuries:
3 neck fractures, soft tissue injuries to neck and shoulders, perforated right ear. Now suffers travel anxiety.
The Personal Injury Claim:
Hayward Baker took on this claim on a No Win No Fee basis and was run by one of our experienced accident claim lawyers.
Liability was not disputed in this matter so we arranged 4 appointments with medical experts to prove our client’s injuries. The experts were:
- Orthopaedic Consultant
- ENT Specialist
- Printing ink
- Recorded delivery post
- Photographs of injuries
Each of the above medical experts formulated a report upon our client’s injury and stated any further treatment required and what the prognosis would be for each injury. These reports were used to value our client’s claim for compensation and prove any other losses our client may have incurred due to the accident such as:
- Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
- medical expenses (e.g. Pain Killers, neck support pillow)
- Replacement spectacles
- Dual motor lift chair
- Replacement for damaged clothing
Proceedings were issued in this matter but the case was settled by consent with the defendant solicitors prior to going to Court.
Hayward Baker settled the claim for £60,000 including out of pocket expenses
