Client receives almost four times the initial offer from insurance company

Queuing traffic

A woman was injured when she was the front seat passenger in a vehicle involved in a road traffic accident. The vehicle in which she was travelling was hit from behind whilst stationary in a queue of traffic, shunting the vehicle into the vehicle in front.

She sustained whiplash and an injury to her knee.

She contacted Digby Brown about a road traffic injury claim and negotiations with the third party insurers commenced.

An initial offer of £1,600 was made and rejected as this did not fairly represent her injuries.

After prolonged attempts at a realistic settlement, our solicitors finally raised legal proceedings in the Sheriff Court to secure rightful compensation.

Eventually the case settled for £6,000 - over four times the initial offer.
