Case Study

The first and second claimants both sustained injury when the car in which they were travelling collided with a police car that travelled into their path. The second claimant sustained mild whiplash injury with a soft tissue injury to her foot/lower leg, as well as bruising to her chest. She also suffered psychological sequelae in the form of fear when travelling in a moving vehicle, describing herself as a ‘back-seat driver’ for years after the accident. The second claimant found it difficult to perform domestic duties for about four weeks. She took one week off work. She suffered significant pain in her foot on returning to work as her job involved continuous standing. The bruising to the second claimant’s chest resolved within a few weeks. Her whiplash almost fully resolved within eight months. The most significant injury was pain and restriction of movement in her foot and lower leg up to the ankle. Although, within a few months of the accident, these symptoms had become intermittent, they occurred regularly. The second claimant was restricted in walking and climbing stairs. She was required to change shoes to the lower-heeled variety with cushioned support for the foot arch. There was substantial improvement after she undertook a course of physiotherapy two years after the accident. The judge concluded that the second claimant had made a full recovery by the time of the trial. General damages £5,579.07.

Case Study 2

The first and second claimants both sustained injury when the car in which they were travelling collided with a police car that travelled into their path. The first claimant sustained whiplash injury, suffering pain and stiffness in his cervical spine. His symptoms were moderately severe and continuous for a period of six weeks. He was required to take three weeks off work as a postman. He then returned to work despite feeling that he was not quite ready to do so. For the first three weeks he felt discomfort when carrying a bag full of mail. His symptoms then began to resolve and became intermittent. He made a reasonable recovery within eight months. However, 18 months after the accident he still felt pain in his neck when raising his arm above shoulder level, which he frequently had to do when posting letters. The judge concluded that the first claimant had made a full recovery by the time of the trial. General damages £4,184.3.
