Beilby Poulden Costello recently acted on behalf of a client who sustained whiplash type injuries to the neck and back as a result of a rear end motor vehicle accident.
This is a very common injury and one where substantial compensation can still be obtained.
At the time of the whiplash injury, our client was employed as a personal assistant on a full-time basis and also undertook an active roll in the care of her disabled son.
Whilst our client managed to remain at work, the nature of her duties that required static posture behind a computer for the majority of the day aggravated her injuries and she was concerned that she would not be able to remain in her employment. Additionally, as a result of the injuries, our client was unable to care for her son or assist the family with household and domestic tasks.
Because our client managed to remain at work, the motor vehicle insurer did not accept that she might in the future be required to reduce her hours or even that she would need to retire prematurely due to her injuries. The insurer did not consider that it was necessary for our client to have any assistance with the help and care for her disabled son.
Our lawyers successfully obtained the necessary medical evidence to support a claim on behalf of our client and she was successful in obtaining an award of compensation that took into account the possibility that she would not be able to work in the future as well as an amount to help her care for her son. The outcome was very pleasing and one which was fair, despite the insurers concerns.
