Road Traffic Accident Whiplash Compensation Case Settled by RTA Solicitor

03 July 2012

In this road traffic accident case Personal Injury Solicitor Sara Heppenstall successfully represented a man who suffered a whiplash injury and a trapped nerve in his back.

Our client was a passenger in a car. The Defendant's car was initially stationary in front of our client’s car, then suddenly and without warning the Defendant reversed into the car our client was sitting in.

Our client suffered a whiplash injury and a trapped nerve in his back as a result of this road traffic accident.

A pre-medical compensation offer was made by the Defendant’s insurance company in the amount of £1,000 which was rejected by our client.

Sara entered into further negations on behalf of our client and the Defendants subsequently made a further pre-medical offer of £1,650 which was accepted by our injured client.
