Mrs C of Oldham was the innocent victim of a road traffic accident which occurred on the M6 motorway. A nearby fire had resulted in very poor visibility for drivers. Mrs C was a passenger being driven correctly at a speed of approximately 20mph when a crash occurred involving multiple vehicles.
The unexpected incident traumatised Mrs C, as well as causing her multiple physical injuries to her chest, neck and lower back. It was necessary for Mrs C to attend Chorley General Hospital who examined her injuries. Mrs C continued with symptoms for a considerable time which were attributable to the incident, so she decided to consult Farleys’ Oldham and Manchester expert personal injury road traffic accident lawyers.
How the motorway traffic accident compensation claims specialists at Farleys helped.
Farleys expert north-west personal injury solicitors immediately sought to seek redress for Mrs C. Farleys’ professional approach ensured Mrs C was assessed by a medical expert to determine the extent of her injuries and how long she might expect to be affected following the accident. Along with injuries to her chest and back, Mrs C was found to have sustained significant trauma to her neck, consistent with a ‘whiplash’ injury. Successful negotiation on Mrs C’s behalf by Farleys led to her receiving a compensation amount of £5000. This figure was awarded to Mrs C by her driver’s insurance company, highlighting the fact that compensation claims for road traffic accidents are not limited to actions against the drivers of other vehicles.
