Our client was travelling down a road in Edgware when the defendant drove into the rear of her correctly proceeding vehicle. As a result of the accident our client suffered personal injury and loss.
Extent of our Client’s injuries:
Soft tissue injury to back and bulging disc.
How Hayward Baker helped:
We took on this case on a No Win No Fee basis via the online RTA Low Value Insurers Portal.
Liability was admitted by the defendant’s insurers, although they took longer than they had to confirm their position, so the claim was taken out of the Portal process.
We arranged for our client to be medically examined by a medical expert and used the expert’s report to prove our client’s injuries.
There was an argument raised by the defendant insurers and this was the fact that our client already had lumbar disc degeneration (wear and tear) and stated that the accident was not responsible for the whole extent of her injuries. At the same time the insurers made an offer to settle the case now and our client had 21 days to accept.
We advised our client of the risks of accepting or refusing the insurers offer and it was her choice as to what she wishes to do next.
Our client accepted the offer and the claim settled for £10,000
