One of our clients was involved in a nasty RTA with another vehicle. She sustained a whiplash injury. This was a particularly difficult case as both drivers blamed each other. There were no independent witnesses. The report compiled by the Police following the accident was not particularly helpful. The insurers of the other driver were only prepared to settle her case on a 50/50 basis.
We obtained our own report from an independent Accident Reconstruction expert and in light of the damage caused to both vehicles, the skid marks and other factors, he took the view that the other driver was to blame for the collision. Once this report was disclosed to the insurers they agreed to compensation her in full.
SJ Edney solicitors obtained £12,500 for this client in 2006
