Road traffic accident claims  range from the most straightforward neck strain occasioned in a rear end shunt to catastrophic injuries sustained by a child run down in the road.

A bog standard type of case is described below.

M, female, an events manager, who was aged 27 years old at the date of the road traffic accident and 30 at the date of the trial, suffered soft tissue injuries to the neck, right shoulder and low back. After the accident M was shocked and shaken up. Within 2 hours of the accident M developed moderate neck pain with stiffness, moderate pain in the right shoulder region with associated stiffness and moderate low back pain. M attended a walk-in centre the day afterwards. She was diagnosed with minor soft tissue injuries and advised to mobilise and use painkillers for relief. The symptoms were at their most acute for 2 weeks after the accident. During this time M self-medicated with painkillers. M was absent from work for a day because of her symptoms, although her ongoing symptoms caused postural difficulties at work for 2 months thereafter, and her partner had to carry out all household chores for a fortnight. M’s sleep was disturbed because of her ongoing symptoms for 4 weeks. M’s neck and low back pain settled after 2 months. Her right shoulder pain was slightly more persistent and settled after 3 months. Quantum was approached on the basis that M had suffered a general whiplash injury and she was awarded £1300.

To maximise your compensation make sure you visit your GP and have your symptoms documented throughout their duration.
