Whiplash compensation claim for driver in multiple-vehicle road accident

Almost home from work one day, this client, through no fault of his own, was involved in a road traffic accident whilst he waited to turn right at a busy junction.

Our specialist road traffic accident lawyers were forced to issue court proceedings when the defendant's insurers refused to respond to a request for an interim payment to fund ongoing treatment. During the proceedings, we were eventually able to secure an interim payment of several thousand pounds towards these costs. Before the date of the trial however, we were then able to negotiate over £20,000 in road accident compensation for our client.

Multiple vehicle road accident

Whilst waiting to turn right, without warning, our client was hit in the rear by another vehicle, suffering extensive bruising and whiplash injuries as his vehicle was pushed into the path of oncoming traffic. He was then hit by an oncoming vehicle and spun around, causing further injury and damage to his vehicle. A second oncoming vehicle was able to stop before causing even more damage and injury.

Multiple injuries from the road traffic accident

Although he was wearing a seat belt, our client was thrown around inside his vehicle as it was tossed around. He suffered extensive bruising, whiplash injuries, and impact injuries to several parts of his lower body, as well as injuries to his teeth. A suspected spinal injury was fortunately ruled out by x-ray on his arrival at hospital.

It took many months of physiotherapy and dental treatment before our client mostly recovered from his painful injuries. He continues to suffer from some stiffness and pain, as well as some psychological issues as a result of the trauma of the accident, and has been unable to return fully to his previous work which involved a considerable amount of driving.
