Mr P. was involved in a road traffic accident in which he was hit from behind by a third party vehicle. He sustained soft tissue injuries and developed a chronic pain syndrome. Previous solicitors had secured interim payments on Mr P's behalf totaling £2852.33 and advised Mr P. that on the basis of the medical evidence, the third party insurers were not going to make him any further offers.

Proceedings were raised in the Court of Session and Senior and Junior Counsel were instructed on Mr P.'s behalf. After negoatations with the defender's solicitors, Mr P's case settled for £300,000 gross of benefits received.
