Road Traffic Accidents
Case studies


£17,600

Claimant secures 5 figure settlement despite conservative valuation from barrister.

I represented a Claimant who was involved in a road traffic accident where the Defendant reversed into the Claimant’s vehicle.  Although the circumstances of the collision were typical and straightforward, his injuries were anything but.  Although the Claimant’s soft tissue injuries resolved within a week he also developed severe tinnitus and hyperacusis as a result of the accident; much rarer injuries than your typical whiplash claim.  I secured the Claimant rehabilitative therapy on a private basis (at the expense of the insurer, of course).  Due to the complexity of the injuries an advice from a barrister was sought and the barrister advised that it was unlikely that the Claimant’s claim would exceed £10,000.00.

 

In spite of this, I managed to secure a settlement in the sum of £17,600.00 including general damages and rehabilitation treatment.

Claimant secures compensation despite being told he had no prospects of success.

In this instance the Claimant came to Aequitas Legal after being told by his previous firm of solicitors that his case was being closed as he had no prospects of success.  Upon a review of the file of papers it was apparent that the alleged lack of prospects had arisen as a result of the previous solicitors’ failing to relay the Claimant’s instructions to the medical expert.  I took over the case and immediately rectified the situation directly with the medical expert.   The Defendant failed to make offers despite disclosure of evidence and proceedings were issued.  With the added pressure of proceedings the Defendant entered negotiations swiftly and a settlement was secured shortly thereafter.  It’s always worth getting a second opinion from a different firm of solicitors if your file is being closed by another firm.
