Inverness client in road traffic accident receives 5 times original compensation offer

Taxi and cars on the road

An Inverness client came to Digby Brown Solicitors after suffering an injury following a road traffic accident. 

The client had been proceeding correctly at a busy roundabout when a vehicle pulled out and caused a collision. The client was in the process of setting up a new business at the time of the accident and was unable to proceed with the venture for a number of months owing to the injury. The client lost potential earnings as a result. 

This was a difficult case to value, given the speculative nature of the lost income, but Digby Brown's local office in Inverness were able to use their specialist legal knowledge and experience to instruct the appropriate experts and gather the evidence to prove the loss and value it appropriately. 

An initial offer of £4,000 was rejected and the action was raised in Court. The case was later settled for 5 times the original compensation offer, at £20,000.
