How Hayward Baker helped

The  defendant insurers denied  liability for the accident shortly after we submitted our client’s claim.

we still had to prove that our client’s injuries were asa result of the accident and we did this by arranging a medical examination for our client  with a medical expert who examined our client and afterwards formulated a report upon his injuries. It would be this report we used to help  prove our client’s injuries were as a result of the accident and aid us in valuing his claim.

The report also supported the following claim for Special Damages:

  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Care and Assistance
  • Loss of earnings
  • Damaged items
  • Medical expenses

Settlement

We negotiated  settlement for our client in the sum of just over £22,000.00
