Mr Hayes, a 51 year old man, was injured after he was involved in a multi car collision on a dual carriageway in November 2009. The car Mr Hayes was travelling in was hit from behind when a vehicle pulled into the fast lane.
Despite wearing his seat belt, Mr Hayes sustained injuries to his neck and shoulder, which lasted for six months. He also suffered headaches and blurred vision. Further complications were identified, which suggested the possibility of a head injury, resulting in post-accident epilepsy. Following the accident, Mr Hayes was unable to work for 2 weeks and therefore suffered a loss of earnings.
Mr Hayes thought he may have had post traumatic epilepsy. Fortunately, Irwin Mitchell solicitors were able to obtain expert evidence, which assured Mr Hayes that he was not suffering from his condition and were able to bring a claim against the defendant driver’s insurers. The case was settled out of court for the sum of £6,435.
