Post-traumatic stress disorder caused by accident £17,000

We were instructed by a young man (aged 28) who was involved in a terrifying road traffic accident during March 2006. He had been travelling as a front seat passenger in a friend’s car when it collided with another vehicle. Both drivers died.

We represented our client at the Inquest on a pro bono basis. Although his physical injuries were minor, he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. We arranged for him to undergo cognitive behavioural therapy, which he found very helpful. Proceedings were issued and the insurers of the careless driver put forward an offer to settle this claim of £10,000 which, on our advice he rejected. This matter settled shortly before Trial.

S. J. Edney solicitors obtained £17,000 for this client in 2007
