Road traffic accident claim settles for £36,650

Jane was driving her car in slow traffic, when she saw a bus coming towards her that was indicating to turn right, so she slowed down to stop and let the bus across her path. The vehicle behind her did not notice her braking and drove into the back of her causing damage to both vehicles.

Our client sustained a soft tissue injury to her neck due to whiplash. She also suffered from psychological damage, mainly panic disorder with agoraphobia (the fear of going out/meeting people).

The Defendant’s insurers were contacted and liability was admitted. Following various negotiations, it was agreed that a settlement of £36,650 would be paid to our client due to the various physical and psychological damages resulting from her injuries.
