Successful road accident claim for head-on crash

Our client was injured in a road traffic accident when his vehicle was hit head-on by another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.

Liability for the road accident was accepted but our specialist road accident claim lawyers continued to fight hard to win our client an appropriate level of accident compensation for his injuries.

As the defendant’s insurers refused to negotiate an acceptable settlement for this road accident claim, our personal injury lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings. However, we were able to negotiate a settlement before the trial date and our client received over £10,000 in compensation for his road accident claim.

Head-on road accident

Our client was involved in the road accident when he was towing a trailer to another location. It was a single carriageway with no protective central reservation or barrier.

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.

Road accident injuries

As well as the impact of the head-on collision, which caused our client to suffer severe whiplash injuries, he was also injured as he was thrown around during the drop down the embankment.

Our client suffered multiple injuries in this road accident. These included whiplash injuries that affected his neck and lower back and cuts and bruises to his head and limbs. He also suffered many soft tissue injuries to most areas of his body and limbs. These extensive injuries left him unable to carry out many activities and household tasks for some time.

As well as his physical injuries, our client has been left with anxiety issues as a result of the road accident.
