When a car collision left an elderly gentleman with whiplash injuries, Bartletts specialist personal injury solicitors in Wrexham helped him win compensation.
The 70-year-old gentleman came to see one of our expert personal injury solicitors after his stationary car was struck by another vehicle. The gentleman was sat in the driving seat of his car, parked in a car park, when another car reversed into the back of his car.
The gentleman was thrown forward in his car by the force of the shunt. An ambulance was called to the scene and he was taken to the accident and emergency department of the local hospital. He was diagnosed with soft tissue injuries to his neck and back, and suffering from whiplash.
When the gentleman came to see Bartletts following the accident, he was still in a lot of pain. We arranged for him to get a full medical and he was prescribed a course of physiotherapy to help him regain the mobility had lost because of the accident. He was also suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and severe travel anxiety for which we helped him get cognitive behavioural therapy.
Bartletts quickly helped the retired gentleman claim compensation for his personal injuries from the other car driver’s insurance company. He also secured compensation for psychological effects of the accident as well as recovering the costs of physiotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy.
