£2,750 awarded to police officer involved in road traffic accident

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

Susie suffered from whiplash injuries, including pain to her neck and shoulder which lasted seven months and required physiotherapy. Her life was impacted post-accident due to restriction on what she could do in work, as well as suffering pain from normal day to day activities, such as playing with and caring for her young son.

Our team of road traffic accident solicitors helped secure her £2,750 in compensation following her injuries in the road-traffic accident.

Susie said of the quality of service she received:

“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.”

£2,850 for Client Who Slipped on Icy Pavement

John fell while walking along Severn Road in Wigan. Sadly, the public pavement had been gritted following cold and icy weather. As such it presented 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.

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 we 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.

Our team of personal injury solicitors secured £2,850 for John due to the circumstances around the accident.

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.”

If you’ve had a slip, trip or fall accident you could be entitled to compensation. Contact Hampson Hughes Solicitors for a free, no obligation chat on 0800 888 6 888 or send an email to info@hampsonhughes.com.
