Successful road accident claim for head-on crash

The other driver lost control of his vehicle and veered across the road, directly into the path of our client, who had no opportunity to avoid the collision. Hit head-on, the force of the impact caused our client’s vehicle to swerve off the road, dropping down an embankment and hitting a tree where it came to rest.

Bus passenger receives accident compensation

Although the driver of the vehicle responsible for this road traffic accident admitted liability, his insurer refused to negotiate an acceptable sum in compensation. Our specialist road traffic accident lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings. However, before the date of the trial, the other side made an offer of over £10,000 in personal injury compensation for our client’s suffering and loss of earnings.

HGV driver awarded road traffic accident compensation

An HGV driver for many years, our client asked for our advice on making an accident compensation claim after he was injured in a road traffic accident.

Although the other driver, the defendant, admitted liability, it was necessary for our specialist road accident lawyers to issue court proceedings before they were able to successfully negotiate an acceptable level of personal injury compensation for our client.

However, shortly before the trial date, we were able to secure £18,000 in road traffic accident compensation for our client’s injuries and his reduced income as a result of his wanting to stop driving HGV’s.

Road traffic accident compensation for whiplash victim

When our client’s vehicle was hit from behind whilst she was stationary, she suffered whiplash injuries that were to prove extensive and take a considerable time to heal. At the time of her road traffic accident compensation award, she was still unable to return to work and had undergone surgery to correct torn ligaments in her shoulder.

Our specialist road accident lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings and the defendant subsequently admitted liability for her whiplash injuries. We were able to negotiate over £20,000 in personal injury compensation for our client’s ongoing pain and discomfort.
