Lady driver injured in a road collision is awarded over £8,000.00 in compensation

On the above date the Claimant was driving along a road in Hampshire. The Defendant was driving in the opposite direction when without warning, he veered on the Claimant’s side of the road and into her traffic lane. The Claimant pulled her vehicle over to the left hand side of the road and stopped her vehicle. However the Defendant continued and collided with the front driver’s side of the Claimant’s vehicle. As a result the Claimant has sustained injury, loss and damage.

Our Client’s Injuries: Ligament damage to right foot. Soft tissue injury to right hand. Laceration to hand. Neck, back, elbow pain.

How Hayward Baker helped: One of our Personal Injury Specialists made the claim via the low value  Accident insurer’s online portal.

The defendant’s insurer investigating the claim  informed us very early in the claim that liability was admitted on behalf of their insured.

A medical report was obtained  from a General Practitioner. This medical experts report was required  to show that our client’s injuries were a direct result of the accident and to also aid us in valuing our client’s claim for damages.

In addition to the compensation for our client’s injuries (Damages) we also claimed for out of pocket expenses (Special damages) for the following:

  • Travel Expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Medical Expenses (Bio Oil, Dressings and Prescription Charges)
  • Future Surgery Costs
  • Loss of Earnings
  • Care and Assistance
  • Damaged Clothing

We tried to negotiate settlement with the Defendant insurers but unfortunately we could not agree a final figure. Therefore Proceedings were issued and the matter was to go to Court and let a Judge decide a figure for damages. However,  having to go to  Court was avoided and we did manage to settle the claim.

Resolution: We managed to negotiate settlement in the sum of £8,500.00
