Case Study: Whiplash After Car Was Hit by a Delivery Truck
Mr C, Salford Received Over £3,000
JMW has helped a motorist receive over £3,000 compensation after his car was hit by a delivery truck, resulting in whiplash.
Mr C. was proceeding along a main road in central Salford when a delivery truck pulled out from a side road and caught his near side back quarter panel.
As a result of the collision, the truck driver caused damage to Mr C’s car that required him to have a brand new bumper and have the back quarter panel of the car knocked out.
Mr C felt a spasm in his neck shortly after the accident. He contacted an acquaintance who worked at JMW and it was suggested that Mr C visit a Doctor, as the neck spasm sounded like a symptom of whiplash. The Doctor confirmed that Mr C did have whiplash and Mr C decided to make a claim.
Mr C dealt with Michelle Arathoon, Associate, who was able to resolve his claim in less than two months. Mr C says of Michelle: “Michelle was absolutely brilliant. She started the process going and was able to secure a compensation settlement for me within two months. I didn’t need to be involved in the process until the settlement came; Michelle kept me informed at every step and was professional and hard working throughout.”
Mr C concluded the case with a settlement of over £3,000 which covered his injuries.
