Our client was waiting in a queue of traffic on a slip road when the Defendant failed to stop and collided with the rear of our client’s stationary vehicle.
As a result of the collision, our client suffered from a whiplash injury.
A soft tissue injury to neck (whiplash), shoulders and lower back with pain travelling into her right leg was caused.
How Hayward Baker Helped:
For this whiplash client, our personal injury specialist Ria Tallack decided to take on the case. This was agreed on a no win no fee basis to benefit the client as much as possible.
As this was a low value road traffic accident, the claim was made through the Low Value Personal Injury Accident Portal. The defendant insurers then looked into the claim and admitted liability for the accident on behalf of their insured.
The Insurers offered to fund rehabilitation (i.e. physiotherapy) for our client, and Ria arranged for our client to be examined by a medical expert.
The medical evidence allowed Ria to prove that the injuries that our client received were caused by the accident, and would help value the claim correctly for damages.
After the first report was received, the medical expert recommended that our client has a course of physiotherapy to help with his recovery, and this was organised.
The medical report let Ria accurately value the claim so that our client received a fair amount of personal injury compensation.
In addition to compensation for his injuries, a claim was also made for our client’s out of pocket expenses which included loss of earnings and medical expenses.
Ria negotiated a fair settlement figure for our client, and as a result, the claim was settled for £3,715 thanks to Ria’s ongoing dedication and legal knowledge.
