Jonathan Herbert, specialist personal injury lawyer acting for the claimant successfully obtained damages of £50,000 to compensate the claimant for his pain and suffering and to pay for ongoing medical treatment.
Mr M was injured when the driver of an oncoming school mini bus failed to see that the traffic in his lane had come to a stop and he hit the vehicle in front of him and then skidded across the road and collided with Mr M’s vehicle. Mr M suffered back, eye and psychiatric injuries.
Mr M commenced a claim with different solicitors. Whilst they secured an admission of liability, Mr M became dissatisfied with way his case was being handled and therefore instructed Thomson Snell & Passmore to represent him.
Mr M had sustained a number of injuries including a severe musculo-ligamentous sprain at the neck and lower back with associated radiation, as well as disc protrusion at L5/S1, a posterior vitreous detachment on the right side albeit with no retinal sequelae but that he had developed “floaters” on the right side and a moderately severe depressive episode, characterised by symptoms of anxiety requiring further treatment.
Court proceedings were commenced but the defendant agreed a settlement before the case came to trial.
