£95,000 injury settlement obtained for a man with back and neck injuries

  • Posted

Mick Upton, a personal injury specialist at Ashtons Legal, has negotiated a claim settlement of £95,000 for a client following a road traffic collision.

His claim was initially valued at less than £25,000 until it became clear that his neck and back injuries had accelerated a pre-existing medical problem by around five years. At this point, the consequences of his injuries were recognised as having more of an impact on his future life than was previously thought, and a higher settlement figure could be justified.

Good personal injury lawyers will always ask comprehensive questions when taking on a claim. This is particularly important in a claim like this, where there was a pre-existing condition which was affected by the new injuries. Sometimes it will mean that the claim takes longer to settle because extra medical assessments and reports are required, but the eventual outcome will be the right one, ensuring that the person who has been injured is not out of pocket financially as a result of the injuries suffered.

If you are unsure as to whether you are receiving the right advice, it is always worth getting a second opinion.
