Case Study – £70,000 compensation for passenger RTA claim

HHD solicitor: Caroline Dunlop, partner specialising in personal injury claims

Settlement: £70,000

What happened: Rear seat passenger in car struck at speed causing significant collision

How HHD solicitors helped: Our client was a rear seat passenger in a car which was struck at speed causing a significant collision. The Police, Fire Service and Ambulance service all attended the scene of the collision. She was taken by ambulance to the A&E department and admitted to hospital where she underwent surgery on her arm and was discharged after one week. She required further physiotherapy and missed time off school. We obtained medical evidence including reports from orthopaedic, plastic surgery, psychiatric and nursing care experts to consider the extent of her physical and psychological injuries.

Our client and her family were delighted to receive the compensation due so promptly after pursuing the claim. If you have been involved in an accident as a passenger which has caused you an injury you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.  To find out more about how our specialist personal injury lawyers could help you, please email on
