How Hayward Baker Solicitors helped:

We took on this claim on a No Win No Fee basis and ran it through the online low value claims insurers portal.

Liability was admitted very early on in this matter which meant that our next step was to prove our client’s injuries. To achieve this we arranged for our client to be medically examined by a General Practitioner who after examining our client formulated a report upon his injuries.

It was the medical report that we used to value our client’s injuries.

once we were in receipt of all of the medical evidence we obtained our client’s permission to settle his claim.


We settled our client’s personal injury claim for just over £2,500.00 after receiving a formal offer from the insurers which was accepted by our client.
