Irwin Mitchell's specialist personal injury team has assisted a man to receive compensation after he was injured in a road traffic collision.
Our client was driving and wearing his seatbelt. He was approaching a left hand bend and was stationary in the road as he could see a vehicle approaching in the opposite direction. The other vehicle collided with the front driver side of our client's car causing the vehicle to shunt backwards and the airbags to deploy.
Our client was initially shocked. Four or five day later he began suffering neck pain radiating to both arms and into his hands and fingers. He went to his GP two weeks after the accident and was diagnosed with whiplash
and advised to take analgesic medication. A course of physiotherapy was recommended and his symptoms resolved within six months of the accident.
Following negotiations with the defendant Irwin Mitchell's team in Sheffield were able to secure £7,540 in compensation for our client.
