Motor Car Accident Injures Driver, Negligent Driver of Vehicle Behind “On The Phone”

Motor Vehicle Accident - Driver on the Phone

FACTS OF MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT

Our client had been out socially with friends. He was headed home. As he drove along, he noticed the traffic lights up ahead were changing to red. He slowed down and came to a stop at the lights. A vehicle driven by a young lady was travelling in the same direction as our client. Unfortunately she was not paying attention. She admitted that she was using her mobile phone. Instead of stopping, she slammed into the back of our client pushing him over 100 metres through the intersection.

In the accident our client suffered a whiplash type injury involving his neck, shoulders and back. Police were called and they charged the young lady with negligent driving.

Following the accident, our client attended his local doctor and over the course of the week noticed that his symptoms were not improving but in fact he seemed to be deteriorating. He was suffering from pain in his neck, both shoulders, arms, back and wrists. As a result of the accident, he took several weeks off work and used his holidays to rest and recover. Physiotherapy and rest were prescribed and slowly over time he was well enough to return to his job.

ACTION TAKEN BY THE MOTOR ACCIDENT PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS HERE AT TAYLOR & SCOTT

On the advice of a former client of Taylor & Scott, our client contacted the motor accident team here.

She explained the law to her client, assisted him in completing the necessary greenslip notification forms and offered to act on a no-win/no-pay basis meaning that if her client did not succeed with his claim, Taylor & Scott would not be paid.

Belinda arranged various medical appointments for her client (all paid for by Taylor & Scott) and provided various particulars to the greenslip insurer of the vehicle at fault. Eventually Belinda arranged an informal settlement conference with the insurance company and went about negotiating a very favourable monetary settlement of her client’s claim.
