Shop Assistant’s Life Ruined as a Result of Motor Vehicle Accident

Motor Vehicle Accident Successful Claim

Our client was a very loyal hardworking shop assistant working full time for one of the large supermarket chains. She enjoyed hard work and caring for her family. She did a lot around the home including mowing the lawn and washing her car as her husband worked away from home in the mining industry.

Tragically this all came to an end when a motor vehicle cut across her path causing her to crash. As a result, she suffered a number of physical injuries but the impact of her accident on her psychologically has left her depressed, frustrated and with an inability to function as she did before the accident.

Initially our client contacted her Union who referred her to Taylor & Scott for advice. Simon Meigan, Partner and Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury, was able to provide his client with assistance and was able to help her with a motor accident claim against the CTP insurer of the vehicle at fault.

Simon’s team gathered all the evidence required to prove negligence and then set about obtaining all the medical evidence needed to prove the extent of both her physical and psychological injuries.

Eventually, Simon was able to arrange a settlement conference at which Simon then negotiated a very substantial settlement sum compensating his client for her injuries, both physical and psychological, together with all of her medical treatment expenses, past, present and future, and a lump sum to compensate her for her substantial loss of income suffered as a result of not being able to return to her job at the supermarket.

If you or someone you know suffers physical or psychological injuries in a motor vehicle accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are welcome to contact the team at Taylor & Scott on 1800 600 664 or by emailing Taylor & Scott at
