£2,500 compensation awarded for road traffic accident
We recently helped a man after he was injured in a road accident
claim compensation for his injuries.
Our client, Mr Dyer, was involved in a road traffic accident in September 2011. He was driving a van along Langley Lane in Middleton, Manchester, when his vehicle was hit from behind
via another vehicle.
During the accident Mr Dyer sustained an injury to his neck
and lumbar spine.
We filed a claim against the owner of the third party vehicle on the basis that they failed to observe the path and position
of our client and failed to control their vehicle
as to avoid a collision. They also failed to observe the appropriate provisions of the Highway Code.
In the first instance they denied liability for accident, however it was later agreed to deal on a without prejudice basis. Offers were put forward to the defendant and the claim settled at £2,500 compensation
for our client following the road traffic accident.
