Case study of a car accident caused by a mobile using driver

In April 2006 The Claim Solicitors received a call from a 19-year-old girl, living in Southampton, who wished to make a car accident claim for both physical and psychological personal injuries.

She told us how she had been driving home from a friend's house when she was involved in a four-car pile-up. Her Renault Megane was hit from behind by a Ford Focus, which sent her careering into two other cars.

It was later revealed that the driver responsible for the accident had been chatting on her mobile phone when she took her eyes off the road, lost control of her vehicle and subsequently caused a serious road smash.

The 19-year-old remembers little after the car accident occurred and woke up in hospital after a witness called for an ambulance. Doctors told her that she had sustained a neck injury which they suspected was a serious case of whiplash and a fracture to her knee which would have to be cast.

The young driver told us how she felt very confused and upset after she started to remember what happened and that she woke up sweating and screaming during the first night she spent in hospital after the car crash. She continued to have nightmares, became very distressed when anyone talked about driving and refused to even think about setting foot in a car for a long while. Doctors diagnosed her with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, advised that she see a counsellor and prescribed her a course of anti-depressants.

After returning home form hospital, the young woman continued to see a therapist to help come to terms with her ordeal and took four months off work as a sales consultant while her knee and whiplash injuries healed.

A work colleague visited her at home and advised that she should enquire about making a car accident claim against the driver that caused the accident. The friend gave her a contact number for The Claim Solicitors and told her that she should make a claim through us because her brother had made a successful compensation claim for a work accident a few months earlier and had just received an out-of-court settlement without any hassles or having to pay out a penny in costs or fees.

This appealed to the Hampshire teen who then contacted us for further details. We assured her that we work under a no win no fee basis and that making a claim through us wouldn't cost her a penny at any time. She said that she would like to go ahead and make a claim against the mobile phone using motorist and we set to work.

We assigned one of our personal injury solicitors that specialise in car accident claims, specifically whiplash injury claims, and her claim was a success. With our expert personal injury solicitor fighting her case, the young driver was awarded just under £38,000 covering the pain and mental anguish the car accident and her subsequent injuries had caused as well as recompensing the earnings that she had lost and the cost of prescriptions and therapy she had forked out for.
