Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors' road accident compensation team were able to assist
a client who was involved in a motorway crash with an articulated lorry, when the
lorry swerved into her lane and clipped the back of her vehicle. The client and
her daughter who was in the passenger seat each sustained a whiplash injury and
also suffered quite severe psychological symptoms as a result of the crash. As the
lorry was driven by a foreign driver, there was some difficulty establishing the
appropriate insurers and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau were able to assist us in obtaining
the appropriate details of the UK handling agents.
Injuries were assessed and we were able to successfully recover lost earnings, policy
excess, a hire account and a sum for care and assistance received as a result of
their car accident, on behalf of our client, totalling in excess of £7000. From
start to finish this complicated matter took just 18 months to settle.
