On the date of the accident our client was driving along the M62 in a queue of traffic when suddenly the vehicle in front braked sharply. Our client managed to stop in time. The vehicle directly behind our client, a large van, also stopped in time, however the defendant in the next vehicle collided with the rear of the van causing that vehicle to be shunted into collision with the rear of our client’s vehicle.
As a result of the collision our client suffered personal injury and loss.
Our client’s injuries

How Hayward Baker Solicitors helped
Liability was not in question in this case . However, did seek medical evidence by instructing a General Practitioner and a psychologist so we could prove our client’s injuries and get a prognosis for treatment and recovery periods. It was the medical reports formulated by these three aforementioned 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
Our client received and overall payment of just over £3,500.00 in compensation to include special damages.
