ASD assisted Miss B of Immingham who suffered serious injury in a low speed collision.
Miss B developed significant and debilitating pain in her lower back after being struck from behind by another driver. The injuries were so severe that her future employment was affected.
3 years after the accident the claim was settled for a sum exceeding £50,000.
Richard Meggitt, Solicitor, acted for Miss B. He said, following the settlement, “relatively minor accidents can have devastating consequences. When I met with my client it was clear she had a serious problem in lower back. I instructed an orthopaedic surgeon who arranged an MRI scan. It was only following the scan that damage to a nerve in the sacro illiac joint was found. This may have been missed if a GP had been instructed very soon after the accident, as is the policy of many larger firms. As always medical evidence is key.”
This claim was settled in February 2015
