Client Recovers £10,000 in Damages Following Road Traffic Accident


Miss T approached specialist personal injury solicitor Holly Barnes to act on her behalf to recover damages for her injury.


Miss T was a full-time student at the time of her accident.

She was driving with an elderly passenger on a road which had central islands with bollards on them.

Miss T heard a loud crunch and saw that a car which was driving in the opposite direction had hit the bollards, driving over them at a fast speed.

The driver then lost control of their car and collided with the driver’s side of Miss T’s car, leading it to flip onto the bonnet. This caused both cars to end up off the side of the road in hedges.

Shortly after the accident, the road was shut off by police. Ambulances rushed to the scene, as well as an air ambulance which landed in the field next to the road.

Miss T and her passenger were both rushed to hospital. She suffered injuries to the right side of her neck and her back, as well as various cuts and bruises across her body.

It was evident that she was very lucky to have survived such a large impact.

The accident caused extensive damage to the vehicle, which was written off.

How We Were Able to Help

Liability was admitted and the cost of the car was immediately covered by Miss T’s insurers.

The pain grew worse over time and caused Miss T great strain when she was studying. To help with her recovery physiotherapy was recommended by the independent expert we had instructed.

It was important for us to review Miss T’s losses thoroughly to ensure that the maximum compensation could be achieved.

The losses included; her injury, medical bills including prescriptions and physiotherapy, short-term car hire and more.

In total Miss T was able to recover over £10,000 in her final settlement of the claim.
