Car Passenger Receives Whiplash Injury Compensation

A client asked for our road traffic accident compensation advice when she was injured as a car passenger.

No Avoiding Action Taken In Road Traffic Accident

The vehicle in which our client was travelling was stationary, and the other driver approached at an excessive speed, making no attempt to either slow down or take action that may have avoided this car accident. His vehicle collided heavily with the offside of the stationary vehicle.

Car Passenger Injuries Received In Car Accident

Our client suffered a passenger injury in the form of severe whiplash to her neck, resulting in a soft tissue injury, as well as injuries to her shoulder and spine. As a result of this road accident, she was left with a specific travel anxiety condition.

Court Proceedings Issued For Car Passenger Claim

Our client asked us to bring a car passenger accident claim on her behalf. Although the driver of the other vehicle admitted liability, the defendant's insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable settlement for passenger injury compensation. It was therefore necessary for our personal injury lawyers, who have extensive experience in successfully securing car passenger compensation, to issue court proceedings.

However, prior to the trial, an acceptable sum in car passenger compensation was agreed and our client was awarded over £19,000 in compensation for her car passenger injuries.
