Jodie Doran, a Personal Injury Solicitor at Ward & Rider Limited, acted for a client who was injured in a road traffic accident. Whilst the client’s vehicle was stationary it was hit from behind by another vehicle.
Our client suffered injury to his neck, back and hip as a consequence of the accident. He suffered a great deal of pain and unfortunately his hip in particular continued to provide him with significant pain.
Our client was examined a number of times by an instructed medical expert. Unfortunately, the expert was of the opinion that he would suffer ongoing nuisance symptoms in his neck as a consequence of the accident. Fortunately, both the back and hip injury reached a full resolution.
A personal injury claim was put to the defendant and liability was admitted by them at the outset. However, the value of the claim was something of a great disagreement between the parties. Due to this, court proceedings were issued to ensure our client was awarded a compensation figure which truly reflected the injuries he had suffered and financial losses he had incurred.
Finally, the defendant began to appreciate the injuries suffered by our client and he received the sum of £20,000 in full and final settlement of his claim.
