An all too common occurrence of a stationery vehicle being hit from the rear
Mrs M. was involved in a road traffic accident when she halted her vehicle because the vehicle in front had stopped. As a result her vehicle was struck from behind. She sustained a soft tissue type injury to her neck and back. She required physiotherapy treatment. Mrs M. was unable to work for a period as a result of her injuries. An initial offer of £3500 was made by the third party's insurer. This was rejected and Mrs M's claim was raised in the Court of Session. The case settled in advance of the Proof date for £7500.
