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.
