£32,000 obtained for injured driver who was initially offered £1,800
Nick Peake, a personal injury specialist at Ashtons Legal, has obtained a settlement of £32,000 for Mr W, an injured driver, who suffered both physical and psychological injuries when another driver ran into his vehicle.
Mr W’s car was hit from behind by a driver who was not paying sufficient attention to the traffic conditions.
Mr W suffered a concussion, post-concussion syndrome and also injuries to his neck. The insurers for the driver who was at fault initially tried to settle Mr W’s claim for £1,800, before any medical reports were obtained. Once he had sought the advice of both a psychologist and a neurologist, the settlement offer increased, but initially to £15,000 and then £22,000 before finally settling at £32,000.
Nick Peake comments: “This is one of many claims we handle which demonstrate the importance of those who are injured seeking professional advice from personal injury specialists in order to obtain the compensation they deserve. This can be key, for example, in funding their future private medical support.”
