Our client was travelling in her car when the Defendant ploughed into the back of her vehicle.
The crash was so serious that our client developed a severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder which began to trigger non-epileptic fits. These seizures occur once a fortnight and have, understandably, had a significant impact on our client’s quality of life and ability to work.
Our client has been left to rely heavily upon both her mother and her husband to care for her young daughter, also requiring a great deal of care herself.
Upon taking this case over from previous solicitors, Irwin Mitchell’s expert solicitors were able to secure a £50,000 interim payment to bring in a private case manager who would oversee a comprehensive package of activities with a view to restoring some quality to the client's life. It had previously been recommended by the medico-legal expert to take a holistic approach to see whether this could help the Claimant better manage her symptoms. Thanks to the work of the Irwin Mitchell team, this can now finally be put into place.
