Zoe Receives Over £70,000 Compensation Following Road Traffic Accident
In November 2011 Zoe was involved in a road traffic accident. The driver of another vehicle did a sudden U-turn which caused Zoe to collide with the vehicle. It was a low speed shunt but Zoe was immediately aware of some pain from her seat belt and in her lower back. She contacted Jill Barratt a week after the accident. Initially it looked as if this was a case where compensation would be limited although it was very early days. We submitted a claim through the Portal, as a low value road traffic accident claim at the beginning of January 2012. The Defendant admitted liability within days.
Unfortunately for Zoe her progress was not as she would have hoped. By February 2013 she had still not been able to return to work. Zoe was also suffering from restrictive symptoms from her injuries. She had had problems prior to the accident but the accident exacerbated those difficulties. The injuries were greatly affecting her lifestyle.
When this case first started we anticipated that Zoe would recover a modest amount of compensation. In fact we expected that it would probably be no more than £2000. In the event Zoe received compensation of over £70,000. She described herself as being “absolutely stunned by this”.
Jill has retired but our Personal Injury team is still working with clients who have been involved in road traffic accidents.
