Man receives injury compensation after driver crashes into parked car
Our client (AR) was parked on the side of a main road waiting for a friend when a speeding vehicle crashed into him and pushed his vehicle onto the pavement. Our client suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck, back and left knee. The Defendants initially accused AR of being partially at fault for the accident and we successfully challenged this.
We recovered £4000 in compensation for his pain and suffering of 7-8 months with mild stiffness at 18 months.
Man receives compensation three years after injury in car accident
Our client came to us late in the day following his road traffic accident almost three years before. He was a passenger in a vehicle which was shunted in the rear.
We were able to obtain a liability response quickly and settled his claim for £1600 for three months of whiplash type injuries to his neck.
Compensation received after crash into side of car
Our client (EE) was driving on a main road when another vehicle pulled out of a side road and crashed into the left hand side of EE’s vehicle. Our client was shook up and had to take time off work. The Defendants initially accused EE of being partially at fault for the accident and we successfully challenged this. Our client suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck, shoulders, back and right wrist for just over a year.
We recovered £3000 in compensation for his injuries.
Whiplash injury after car accident leads to compensation
Our client was cycling his bicycle on a main road in Central London when a motor vehicle suddenly turned right in front of him onto a side road and he crashed in to the bonnet. Our client suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck and had a week off work.
The injuries lasted approximately nine months and we recovered £3,200 in compensation for him.
Compensation claimed after man in three car accident injures neck and back
The Claimant AE was driving his car on a main road when two other motor vehicles crashed. The vehicles swerved out of their lanes and crashed head on into the Claimant. Our client had pre-existing back problems and suffered soft tissue injuries to his neck, back, shoulders and chest as a result of the accident.
We recovered £3500 in compensation for his injuries which last about one year
Back seat passenger injured in car accident makes successful claim for compensation
Our client (RH) was injured when the driver of the car in which he was a back seat passenger slammed on the brakes for no apparent reason. RH suffered dental injuries when his face hit the seat rest in front of him as a result of the impact, a whiplash injury and had to undergo counselling as he was so shaken up by the incident.
We were able to recover £15,000 for our client.
