We also handle side-collision accidents. One such accident we handled came after our claim advisors received a phone call from a woman wishing to make a no win, no fee car accident claim who had been involved in a side-collision car accident just off the Plymouth A38.
She told us how she was on her way to a business conference at 8.00am when the car crash occurred. She was travelling within the speed limit and slowed as the traffic began to mount up and form a cue at some traffic lights. Her car was almost at a standstill just opposite a junction when another driver waiting to turn left decided to pull out, ploughing directly into the side of her.
The woman told us how she was thrown forwards and backwards and side to side, straining her neck and shoulders and how this series of motions ultimately resulted in a whiplash injury. She was also thrown against her side window, hitting her head and sustaining a minor closed head injury. The impact of the car accident also forced her knees up, causing them to bang on the steering wheel and bruising them badly.
A police patrol car happened to be passing by and saw the car accident occur. The police breathalysed the other driver, who was over the legal alcohol limit, and took him to the police station. They also organised for the injured woman to be taken to the hospital to be checked over.
The woman was told that her personal injuries may cause her to be off work for up to four weeks. She was distressed at this news as she is a self-employed businesswoman but accepted that she would have to take time off to recuperate.
She was aware that the car accident had not been her fault in any way and realised that as the police has witnessed the accident she would have a strong case for personal injury compensation. This is when she decided to contact us. We agreed that her case looked good and said that we would find and appoint her a personal injury solicitor in her local area.
The case went very smoothly and was hugely successful. The insurance company of the driver who caused the accident accepted full liability and they made her an offer of £5,800 to cover the cost of her personal injuries, damage to her car and lost earnings over the past weeks.
