Compensation after road traffic accident on M74, Glasgow

Traffic on motorway

Digby Brown was approached by four clients who had all been involved in a road traffic accident on the M74 near to Junction 3 at Glasgow. 

How did the road traffic accident on the M74 happen?

While returning from a stock car racing event, the rear of their transporter was struck by a Peugeot 206 which had joined the motorway at high speed. 

The accident was severe enough to require a complete closure of all northbound lanes of the motorway.

Road traffic accident injuries

All of the occupants of the transporter suffered whiplash injuries and their vehicle suffered significant rear-end damage.

The driver of the vehicle was left without the use of the transporter, which he used to carry out his job as a mechanic and vehicle recovery specialist.

Compensation for road traffic accident

Not only were Digby Brown able to secure in excess of £6,000 for the injuries sustained by the passengers and drivers, we were also able to recover over £5,000 to compensate the owner of the transporter for the cost of hiring a transporter while his was being repaired.
