Shop worker travelling in a taxi suffers whiplash after a collision.

At the time of the accident our client was a passenger in a taxi.  The taxi was  stationary at a roundabout when the Defendant collided with the rear of their vehicle.

As a result of the collision our client suffered personal injury and loss.

Our client’s injuries

Whiplash and soft tissue injury to right arm.

How Hayward Baker Solicitors helped

Liability was not in question in this case  as our client was a passenger in a vehicle involved in an accident so therefore could not be held to account. We did seek medical evidence by instructing a General Practitioner to examine our client so we could prove our client’s injuries and get a prognosis for treatment and recovery periods. It was the medical report formulated by this expert 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
  • Medical Expenses

Resolution

Our client received and overall  payment of  £2,400.00  for damages and special damages.
