Ray Hudson acted for Miss P from Somerset in relation to a road traffic accident. Miss P suffered a variety of symptoms and helpfully received early treatment in relation to her physical injuries.
The third party driver was arrested and prosecuted for drink driving. A Police report was obtained to assist in relation to liability. To assist in relation to her driving difficulties Miss P enrolled on a course of advanced driving lessons.
Liability was ultimately accepted. It was important to obtain a medical report to fully substantiate the various injuries and this was obtained from a Doctor in Bristol. The medical report assisted in substantiating the extent of symptoms both physically and psychologically. The physical symptoms were at their worst for 6 weeks to Miss P’s shoulder and neck. She also suffered from calf pain for a month and general aches and pains together with hip symptoms for 8 weeks. Her psychological symptoms lasted for around 5 months, during which time she suffered quite severely from loss of confidence in driving and anxiety.
We were able to agree settlement on the basis of £1,900 for Miss P’s injuries, together with expenses of £663.65 which included private medical treatment costs, hire costs, travel expenses, telephone expenses and driving course costs.
Ward & Rider acted for Miss P on a No Win No Fee basis.
