£2,750 Awarded to Police Officer involved in Road Traffic Accident

Hampson Hughes Solicitors has secured £2,750 compensation for a client that was injured in a road traffic accident.

Susie, a police officer who was on duty at the time of the accident, was the driver of an unmarked police car. Her vehicle was stationary at a Pelican Crossing on Walton Hall Drive when another vehicle failed to stop and hit the car from behind. Two other police officers, who were passengers in the vehicle, were also injured.

Unfortunately Susie suffered whiplash injuries including pain to her neck and shoulder which lasted seven months and required physiotherapy. As a result of the accident she wasn’t able to do her normal activities such as play with her young son and the injury also restricted some of her duties at work as a result of pain and discomfort she experienced.

Commenting on the successful outcome of the claim, Susie said:

“All members of staff I spoke to were polite and clearly knowledgeable about their jobs. I felt valued and was kept fully up to date. I was also given good advice regarding my claim.”

£3,524 Compensation for Rear End Collision

Hampson Hughes Solicitors has secured £3,524 after its client Stephen was involved in a road traffic accident. Stephen was driving along Chatsworth Road in Chesterfield when another vehicle failed to maintain a safe braking distance and hit the rear of his vehicle.

As a result of the accident Stephen required physiotherapy after suffering whiplash injuries and a prolapsed discus to the lumbar spine, both of which took seven months to recover from.

Stephen was very happy with the advice he received from Hampson Hughes Solicitors and commented:

“I received a great service from the guys at Hampson Hughes Solicitors. They kept me up to date during the claim and had my best interests at heart throughout the whole process. They never settled for lower offers, which I’m really grateful for – thanks again.”

£2,850 for Client Who Slipped on Icy Pavement

Hampson Hughes Solicitors have successfully secured £2,850 for a client who slipped on ice that had formed on a slope on the pavement during bad weather.

John fell while walking along Severn Road in Wigan. He didn’t believe the public pavement had been gritted and as a result it represented a serious trip hazard.

In the accident John suffered broken ribs to the left side of his body. This led to excruciating pain and breathing difficulties that lasted four months. He was also unable to perform all of his duties as a Grounds Maintenance Officer as his ability to lift heavy items was restricted.

Settling the Case

The defendant, Wigan Borough Council, originally denied liability as they stated that gritting had taken place. Unfortunately, the case was made more difficult by the fact that there were no witnesses to the accident. In spite of this Hampson Hughes Solicitors chose to proceed with the case and issued court proceedings against the council authority. Wigan Borough Council subsequently made an offer to settle the case before it went to court – awarding the client £2,850.

John was happy with the compensation that he received from the accident and commented:

“Thank you for taking my claim on as it was my word against the council and I had no witnesses.  Thank you for believing in me.”
