How Hayward Baker Solicitors helped
Liability was not in question in this case but the settlement amount was contested. We sought medical evidence from a number of medical experts 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 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:
- Care and assistance around the home
- Travelling expenses to and from medical appointments
Our client received and overall payment of £26000 for damages and special damages
