Irwin Mitchell’s specialist personal injury team in Sheffield has assisted a teacher to obtain compensation after she was injured in a road traffic collision.
Our client, aged 41 at the time of the accident, was driving her car and had her seat-belt fastened. She had brought her car to a stop to give way to a bus which was coming in the opposite direction, when another vehicle, being driven by the Defendant, collided with the rear side of her car.
Our client suffered a musculo-ligamentous sprain to the lumbar spine, soft tissue injury to both hips and reactive situation travel anxiety. She had to undergo a course of physiotherapy and also took analgesia as well as Amitriptyline.
Our client took eight weeks off work as a result of her injuries and she was unable to take her dog for a walk or perform her home fitness video exercises. Her husband and mother looked after her children for the first six weeks following her accident, and they also carried out the domestic chores during this time including shopping, housework, cooking. They also had to help our client with personal hygiene such as dressing and undressing and bathing.
The Defendant admitted responsibility and the specialist road traffic collision team at Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office were able to secure £25,000 in compensation for our client.
