A man sitting in his stationary vehicle is injured when another vehicle strikes the rear of his car.
Accident Circumstances: Our client was stationary in his vehicle on the Lichfield Road in Willenhall when the defendant entered the same road from a public house car park and drove into the rear of our client’s vehicle causing him to suffer personal injury.
Client’s Injuries: Lower back and right leg pain.
What did Hayward Baker Solicitors do to help: One of our personal injury specialists Alison Spriggs who is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives took on the case on a no-win-no-fee basis and sent a letter of claim to the defendant, who admitted liability for the accident. Medical evidence was then obtained by arranging medical appointments with a General Practitioner and an Orthopedic Consultant who formulated reports upon our client’s injuries. It was these reports was used to help Alison value the claim for compensation and to prove our client’s injuries to the defendant insurers.
Alison also drafted a schedule of ‘Special Damages’ (Out of pocket expenses) for our client to claim for travelling expenses relating to the accident, plus any related medical expenses.
To help our client mitigate his losses and to aid recovery a course of pain management and physiotherapy was arranged through the defendants insurers.
Resolution: The case settled for £4,746.40
