Traffic Accident Leads to Distress for Postal Worker
A 29 year old man hurt in a road traffic accident
has been awarded compensation for personal injury.
Shunted while Stationary
The Royal Mail driver from Dudley had been stationary at a roundabout
when the defendant, a private individual, failed to stop and collided
into the back of his vehicle.
As a result the man suffered muscle pain in his lower back, neck and right shoulder area.
PTSD and Anxiety Unavoidable for Driver
Simpson Millar LLP's Susan Vanden, who handled the case on instruction from the Communications Workers' Union (CWU)
, said: "The driver was injured physically and psychologically. He suffered post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, and had a great deal of difficulty sleeping
and performing domestic chores for quite a long time.
"He enjoyed his social life, biking and gym workouts before the accident, but unfortunately his injuries and subsequent recuperation prevented such activity
for quite a while."
Professional, Knowledgeable and Available
The man expressed his satisfaction with his compensation award of £5,000
and with Simpson Millar LLP's services.
"[They] have been very professional and of high quality. Simpson Millar LLP were very knowledgeable
about what was going on at all times, and also very easy to get hold of when anything needed further explanation."
