Case A - Road Traffic Accident


We acted for Mrs R following a road traffic accident in February 2008.

She was 43 at the time of the accident and had a good job as a Compliance & Information Security Officer working full time.

Our client’s vehicle was hit in the rear by the defendant’s motor vehicle. Liability was admitted.

As a result of the accident, Mrs R sustained multiple injuries. Her physical injuries were to the shoulders, neck and back with pain radiating into the right hip, groin and thigh. Within 10 days of the accident she had an episode of vertigo and had bouts of dizziness, nausea and vomiting and ringing in her ears (tinnitus,) all of which affected her balance.

The tinnitus in both ears worsened and by November 2008 she had experienced a severe hearing loss in the right ear making the vertigo worse and prevented her from returning to work. As a consequence of her problems, she also became depressed.

After extensive treatments dealing with her physical problems including operations to the shoulder and various treatments in relation to the hearing issues, the claim settled prior to issue In March 2011.

The client received £77,000.00 in addition to the insurers paying the DWP Benefits and over £20,000 worth of treatment to BUPA.
