Winns Supports Client After Life-Changing Accident

A passenger involved in a car accident received specialist consultation from multiple medical experts, after instructing Winn Solicitors’ Serious Injury Team to help following a life-changing accident.

Specialising in complex cases, our team provided expert guidance and arranged for the client to receive the medical treatment needed following an accident which saw a car they were travelling in run into a wall.

The client sustained a fractured jaw and significant dental damage which needed surgery and plating. They also suffered from back pain, a complex pain disorder and psychological problems which resulted in ongoing panic attacks.

Their solicitor, Simon Staton, was able to help; discussing the client’s concerns, assessing their needs and getting everything in place to help with the recovery process.

How did we help?

The Winns’ Serious Injury Team obtained a range of expert medico-legal reports to assess the client’s injuries and the extent to which their ongoing symptoms were accident-related; these included reports from orthopaedic, maxillo-facial, chronic pain consultants and a psychologist.

Gathering evidence to support the claim – including loss of earnings – and helping the client through the claims process, and subsequent court proceedings, our team were able to negotiate a settlement figure of £35,000 in settlement.

This allowed the client to focus on rehabilitation before returning to work again, rather than be involved in the otherwise necessary hassle of dealing with multiple agencies to receive the treatment that would help them recover from their injuries, both physical and mental, as well as obtaining compensation.
