Whiplash Accident Compensation For Holiday Road Traffic Accident

Whiplash injuries are a fairly common occurrence. However, the consequences of a whiplash injury will be many and varied. This client enjoyed swimming and was an enthusiastic rugby player prior to the road traffic accident. He has been unable to return to either sport since the whiplash accident.

Whiplash Injuries

Stationary at the traffic lights, without warning, his vehicle was struck from behind by the defendant, causing severe whiplash injuries, as well as considerable damage to the car. At the time of the road accident, our client was on holiday in the UK with his family, but because of the effects of whiplash, felt unable to continue and cut their holiday short.

Although the whiplash symptoms eventually subsided, our client suffered whiplash neck injuries and shoulder injuries, which caused him considerable pain, and resulted in disturbed sleep for some time.

Whiplash Compensation Awarded At Trial

Liability for the road traffic accident was admitted by the defendant, but his insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable level of whiplash compensation. An initial low offer was rejected by our client, and failure to respond to counter offers, or requests to negotiate a settlement led our specialist whiplash accident solicitors to issue court proceedings.

Further failures to respond by given deadlines led to judgment being requested and at trial, the court made an award of compensation which our expert personal injury lawyers felt was an acceptable sum in whiplash compensation for our client’s pain and suffering.
