£1,600 Compensation Awarded for Road Traffic Accident

Our Road Traffic Accident team were instructed by a client at the beginning of the year after they were injured in a collision.

Mr Gareth Welby was involved in a Road Traffic Accident (RTA) on the 16th March 2016, in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

At the time of the incident, Mr Welby was travelling along Hatfield Road, St Albans. The Defendant, who was driving a Silver Chevrolet, emerged from a side road when it was unsafe to do so and collided with the driver’s side of Mr Welby’s vehicle.

As a result of the collision, Mr Welby’s vehicle sustained momentous damage and he suffered whiplash injuries, along with discomfort to his lower back and pain to his chest wall. Our client’s hobby of attending the gym was also restricted following the accident.

Liability was initially denied as the defendant alleged it was our client who was at fault stating they had acted negligently in attempting to overtake the defendant’s vehicle.

As a result we had no choice but to issue Court Proceedings.

However, prior to any trial the defendant put forward an offer of settlement in the sum of £1,600.

Commenting on the service, Mr Welby said:

“The claims process has been really easy. I haven’t had to worry about a thing. I received outstanding support from Hampson Hughes Solicitors with lots of updates along the way.

“I felt that I could call or email at any point would like to thank the team for their help.”
