Whiplash injury due to rear end shunt car accidentA woman who was a passenger in a Road Traffic Collision was awarded a four figure settlement for damages.

Accident circumstances: Our client was a passenger in a vehicle being driven towards Hazlewick roundabout in Crawley. As our client’s driver stopped at the roundabout to give way to oncoming traffic,  the car behind  negligently failed to stop and collided with the rear of the vehicle in which our client was travelling.

Client’s injuries: Our client suffered injury to her back, elbow, shoulder and neck. The accident also aggravated a previous wrist injury.

What did Hayward Baker Solicitors do to help: One of our personal injury specialists Gary Lee who is a Chartered Legal Executive took on the case on a no-win-no-fee basis and sent a letter of claim to the defendant, who admitted liability for the accident. Gary arranged for our client to be medically examined by a medical expert who then formulated a report upon our client’s injuries. It was this report that was used as medical evidence to support her claim.

Resolution: £2,500.00
