How Hayward Baker Solicitors helped
Liability was not in question in this case as our client was obviously not at fault for the accident. We did seek medical evidence by instructing a General Practitioner and Psychiatrist to examine our client so we could prove our client’s injuries and get a prognosis for treatment and recovery periods. It was these medical reports formulated by the medical experts that we used to value our client’s claim for damages.
We also drafted a schedule of special damages (out of pocket expenses) to make a claim for the following:
- Travelling expenses to and from medical appointments
- Care and assistance around the home
Our client received and overall payment of £3,500.00 for damages and special damages
