Our client from Blackburn was a passenger travelling in a vehicle when the driver suddenly drove into another vehicle causing our client to be thrown forward violently and as a result she suffered injury.
Our Client’s Injuries:
Whiplash injury to back.
How Hayward Baker Helped:
Jodie Longstaff who is one of our personal injury claims specialists took on the case. This was agreed on a no win no fee basis and the claim was made through the low value personal injury insurers portal
The defendant insurers investigated the claim and liability was admitted subject to medical evidence. It was unlikely that our client was going to be held at fault considering that she was a passenger in the vehicle but the insurers required proof that injuries were indeed caused by the material accident.
Medical evidence was obtained from a General Practitioner who examined our client after which he formulated a report upon our client’s injuries.
The medical report highlighted that our client also had a claim for out of pocket expenses for the following:
- Travel expenses to and from medical appointments relating to the injuries caused by the accident.
- Painkillers to ease the pain caused by her injuries
- Care and Assistance around the home to aid with cleaning, ironing, taking small children to school, gardening and vacuuming
The medical expert in his report recommended that a course of physiotherapy was required to aid our client’s recovery.
The medical report proved our client’s injuries were as a result of the accident and as stated to the insurers on the portal and was used by Jodie to value our client’s claim for injury compensation and associated losses.
The claim was settled for £2,300.00
