There for me every step of the way

Cars braking in traffic

All of our personal injury solicitors and staff at Digby Brown understand how difficult it can be to recover from an accident. Many areas of an individuals’ life can be affected and previously straightforward tasks, whether at work or around the house, can become much more difficult.

Digby Brown's personal injury solicitor Tahirah Yousaf in the Digby Brown Edinburgh office started representing Caroline after she had been injured in a road traffic accident in the West of Scotland. 

Impact of road traffic accident injuries

Caroline had suffered injuries to her spine and left wrist, fingers, legs and ankle. She suffered considerable initial and on-on-going, found it difficult to feel comfortable driving or in a car and nightmares as a result of the accident.

Caroline has a demanding role in a key public service and felt her struggle to work as a result of her injuries and the effects of her accident particularly acutely.  

Road traffic accident claim for compensation

Digby Brown were able to make sure that Caroline had access to all of the medical reports and other evidence she needed to pursue a road traffic accident claim for compensation and, after court proceedings had been raised in the Court of Session in Edinburgh, were able to settle the case before it went to proof (heard before a Judge) for a substantial sum.

Caroline was delighted with the service she received from Digby Brown, and Tahirah in particular, as we helped her with every stage of her case from her initial enquiry about whether she might be entitled to compensation to successful out-of-court settlement. 

Caroline speaks about service from Digby Brown Solicitors

Speaking about her case and the service, Caroline commented “Digby Brown Solicitors were there for me when I needed help. Took me through the whole process and allowed me to focus on getting better and back to work” and “this has been a difficult time for me. It was such a relief and comfort to know that Tahirah and the team at Digby Brown were taking care of every aspect of my case and my claim."

In a message to Tahirah after the case successfully concluded, Caroline said:

“I hope that you will both continue to work and provide your expertise/legal assistance for those who need your help, like myself, during what can be a most difficult period in their life.”
