  • Overview

    Dominique Parker, specialist personal injury lawyer based at Thomson Snell & Passmore’s Tunbridge Wells and Dartford (Thames Gateway) Offices, has secured £24,000 for a woman who suffered from PTSD and soft tissue injuries after lorry strikes the car she was traveling in.

    The claimant was a 63 year old woman, and was a front-seat passenger travelling on the M20 in Kent, when the car she was travelling was suddenly struck by a lorry.

    The lorry forced the car off the road and up a bank at the side of the road.

    After the accident, the claimant had to be pulled out of the car by the driver of the car. The driver of the lorry did not stop immediately after the accident. He only stopped when other road users were able to communicate to him what had happened.

    The lorry driver was convicted of driving without due care and attention. He was fined £300 and his licence was endorsed with nine penalty points.

    After the accident the claimant suffered from moderately severe post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a mild-moderately severe depressive episode.

    She also suffered from soft tissue injuries to the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, causing her significant pain, discomfort and restriction. She also suffered from seatbelt bruising and a large breast lump and distortion of the right breast. After a period of recovery she still suffered from minor residual symptoms.

    A claim was bought against both the lorry driver, and his employers. Whilst the defendants admitted liability, they would not admit that their actions had caused our claimant’s injuries. The case was complex due to the claimant having suffered from PTSD in the past, although she had not been suffering from PTSD at the time the accident occurred.

    Dominique Parker undertook negotiations on behalf of the claimant, and a total of £24,000 was obtained to compensate her for her pain and suffering, and to pay for any future treatment she would need.

    Dominique Parker specialises in road traffic injuries cases. If you would like to ask Dominque a question about a potential case, or if you have a general query about any personal injury, contact Dominique on 01892 701366 in confidence.
