£15,000 obtained for traffic collision victim with lacerated spleen

  • Posted

Nick Peake, a personal injury specialist at Ashtons Legal, has obtained a settlement for Mr T after a traffic collision left him with a lacerated spleen.

Nick has obtained over £15,000 for Mr T  by persevering with his claim where others might have given up.

Mr T was in a queue of traffic in his car when a lorry drove into him from behind and shunted him across the carriageway and into another stationary vehicle.  He was hospitalised with a lacerated spleen and injuries to his neck and wrist.  When Ashtons began Mr T’s claim, the lorry driver’s insurers initially failed to respond and then made a low offer, alleging that Mr T was not being honest about his injuries.

Nick Peake comments: “Mr T’s medical records clearly showed what he had suffered so he had every right to the compensation we eventually achieved.  Frustratingly, we had to take this claim all the way to trial (held by video due to the pandemic) to get the right result.”
