6th December 2010

Rear car passenger receives road accident compensation

When she accepted a lift with an acquaintance, our client in this claim for road accident compensation, was to receive substantial injuries in a completely avoidable road accident.

The driver of the car in which our client was travelling, lost control of her vehicle, crashed into a concrete bollard in the middle of the road.

Our specialist personal injury lawyers were able to secure substantial road accident compensation for our client’s injuries.

Road accident injuries to car passenger

The injuries our client received consisted of both short-term and long-term injuries. She suffered whiplash to her neck and shoulder, received a cut to her face which left her with a scar. She also suffered from temporary loss of hearing, loss of strength in her hands and frequent and prolonged headaches. As a learner driver herself, this road accident left her nervous about continuing with her lessons.

Uninsured driver in road accident

The serious nature of this accident necessitated the involvement of the police. Initially they were unable to trace any insurance details for the defendant and our specialist road accident lawyers approached the MIB for possible funding for a victim of an uninsured driver. However, the MIB were subsequently able to help in locating insurance details for the defendant and the claim was able to proceed against the driver.

Road accident compensation for injured rear seat passenger

Although the driver had been identified, and it had been confirmed that they had valid car insurance cover, the defendant's insurer refused to negotiate an acceptable sum in road accident compensation. Our specialist road accident lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings. However before the trial date, they made an increased offer which our client was pleased to accept.
