Project Description

Ray Hudson, a Personal Injury Lawyer, acted for Mrs C from Coventry who was involved in a road traffic accident. Instructions were received nearly 2 years after the accident as previously Mrs C had instructed alternative solicitors who were unable to proceed with her claim.

Liability was admitted in relation to the claim but Mrs C suffered from considerable physical and psychological injuries which required treatment.

Medical evidence in this case was vital in relation to the injuries and other heads of claim. The insurers for the defendants had arranged treatment. This did not assist psychologically in terms of Mrs C’s driving difficulties.

We therefore appointed our own expert to undertake treatment. Ultimately medical evidence showed that Mrs C would continue with some symptoms to her back, but of greater severity were continuing psychological symptoms affecting her driving ability.

Court proceedings were issued on behalf of Mrs C and ultimately, allowing for the extent of her injuries and losses, an offer was accepted which meant that Mrs C received over £37,000 in damages. We incorporated the use of a Barrister to assist given the difficult nature of the claim.

Ray Hudson, a Personal Injury Lawyer from Ward & Rider Solicitors, acted for Mrs C on a No Win – No Fee basis.
