My client was injured badly when another driver lost control of their car and collided into my client’s vehicle.
Instructing us early meant that we were able to arrange early case management. We were able to ensure that a private healthcare professional was jointly instructed and funded by the insurer to assess all of the claimant’s physical, psychological and day-to-day needs. A plan was then put in place and implemented to cater for the claimant’s needs in order to aid their recovery and provide as much assistance as possible through what was a very difficult time.
Interim payments were also secured to help the claimant through their financial hardship as they were unable to work for some significant time due to their injuries.
Expert medical reports were then obtained once the claimant had been discharged by the hospital and after they had received multiple courses of treatment. Based on the recommendations and prognoses set out by those medical experts, a settlement of well over £100,000 was negotiated with the defendant insurer.
The final settlement was over 30% more than the insurer’s original offer.
