Hayward Baker’s client was driving on Broad Street in Chesham when the defendant failed to stop and give way.
As a result, the defendant collided with the side of our client’s vehicle. Due to this accident our client suffered from a number of injuries.
Whiplash injury to the neck in addition to an injury to the lower back, left knee and both ankles. Our client also experienced travel anxiety.
How Hayward Baker Helped:
One of our personal injury specialists Angela Ansell took on this case on a no-win-no-fee basis. As the claim was of low value, Ria made the claim to the defendant insurers through the Low Value Personal Injury Claims Portal.
The defendant insurers failed to provide a decision on liability in the time given to them. Due to this, the claim was removed from the portal.
The insurers then had 3 months and 21 days to investigate the claim and confirm whether they were liable or not. Within a month the defendant insurers admitted liability for the accident.
Medical records from the hospital and our client’s doctor were then requested, and when these were received, Angela arranged for our client to be medically examined by a General Practitioner.
These examinations reported on by the medical professionals, and these reports were used by Angela to prove that the injuries were a direct result of the accident. This then helped her to accurately value the claim.
Upon the receipt of the medical report, Angela valued our client’s claim for damages and created a draft schedule of our client’s out of pocket expenses.
Once this amount was agreed, Angela revealed the medical report to the insurers and asked that they make an offer to settle our client’s claim.
Our client finally received £5,500 as a full settlement of his claim.
