£1,400 Compensation Awarded for Whiplash

Our dedicated team of Personal Injury experts recently secured compensation for a client who sustained severe whiplash injuries in a non-fault road accident.


Our client, Mr Fitzsimons, was travelling home from work at the time of the incident. There was heavy traffic as he approached the M6 Junction near Knutsford, and so our client began to break.

The defendant, driving a black Vauxhall Astra, approached the traffic at speed. They changed lanes when it was unsafe to do so, cutting in front of Mr Fitzsimons vehicle and causing the two vehicles to collide.

Whiplash injuries

As a result of the accident Mr Fitzsimons sustained whiplash injuries to his neck, back and shoulders, he also now suffers from travel anxiety.

Our client reports that he was unable to take part in his day to day activities such as looking after his children and domestic duties following the accident.


We managed to secure a total of £1,400 in compensation for our client on this occasion.

Commenting on his experience with Hampson Hughes Solicitors, Mr Fitzsimons said:

“The staff have been friendly, reliable and informative. They really made sense of what was a complex case that I believed my insurer was dealing with. I am so glad Hampson Hughes grabbed the bull by the horns and was able to shed light on questions I had and put me at ease through the whole process. I felt reassured through the whole process”
