Our client was pulling away from a set of traffic lights near Guildford when the defendant drove into the rear of the car in front causing that vehicle to collide with the rear of our client’s car. As a result of the collision our client suffered injury and loss.
Our Client’s Injuries:
Soft tissue injury to lower back causing mild disability.
What did Hayward Baker do to help?
One of our claims handlers Ria Tallack took on the case on a No Win No Fee basis and ran it through the Personal Injury Claims Portal.
The Defendant insurers acknowledged the claim on the portal and confirmed that liability was admitted subject to medical evidence.
This meant that as long as a medical report from a medical expert confirms our client’s injuries then the insurers will pay our client compensation.
Our client attended the medical appointment and the expert formulated the report which confirmed our client’s injuries and recommended that our client has a course of physiotherapy to aid his recovery.
It was noted by Ria that our client had a number of items to enter onto our client’s Special Damages Schedule (out of pocket expenses) and these included travel expenses to and from medical appointments, the cost of physiotherapy and 2 days loss of earnings.
Once our client had signed and approved the medical report, Ria advised him on the value of his claim and that if he is happy with her valuation of his claim she would disclose the medical report of special damages schedule to the insurers and invite them to make an offer in settlement of his claim.
Ria settled this low value personal injury claim for £1,854.00
