Compensation for injuries sustained in road traffic accident
Mrs Emma Taylor, a 35 year old from Newton-le-Willows, was waiting to make a right hand turn into a side road when her car was hit from behind. The car behind her was also stationary but was hit by a further vehicle, causing it to shunt into the rear bumper of Mrs Taylor’s car.
Mrs Taylor was examined by a GP, who concluded that she had sustained bruising to her chest wall and a sprain to her spine, which he expected to take 4-5 months to heal. Mrs Taylor was prescribed medication for her injuries.
Despite corroboration from a medical expert and repair documents for the damage to Mrs Taylor’s vehicle, one of the defendants did not accept that Mrs Taylor had been injured in the accident.
However, the insurers of the other driver did accept responsibility and Mrs Taylor was paid £1300 for pain and suffering resulting from her injuries
