Case Study

The claimant was a near-side rear-seat passenger in a car that was stationary at a roundabout. She was wearing a seat belt when the car was struck from behind by another vehicle. There was no secondary impact. She was taken to the A&E department, where she was examined but not x-rayed. Painkillers were prescribed. Following the accident the claimant felt immediate pain in her neck and both shoulders. She continued to have posterior neck pain radiating into the occiput, particularly on the right side, every few days. The pain increased on physical activity with no relieving factors. She found it difficult to sleep due to the pain in her neck, which woke her three to four nights a week. She had intermittent difficulty in completing the housework and shopping and required help from her family in the initial stages. She would require four to six sessions of physiotherapy in order to make a full recovery, which was expected within 10 months of the accident. Damages award £2,000.00.

Case Study 2

.The claimant sustained a whiplash injury in a head-on road traffic collision. He attended the casualty department of the local hospital, where he was provided with a cervical collar that he wore for one week. He saw his doctor five days after the accident and was provided with a medical certificate authorising a week’s absence from work.
He described his neck pain as being moderate for two days and mild and intermittent over the following month.
He had discomfort when lying in bed, driving a car and while at work. He had no associated headaches but was upset and shocked. His sleep was disturbed for two nights with recurrent intrusive thoughts of the accident and he was anxious for two weeks when travelling in a car. When assessed four months after the accident, he had had no physical symptoms in the preceding three months and had made a full psychological recovery. Clinical examination of the cervical spine was normal.
The judge noted that the claimant was of a stoical disposition but that the accident had been an unpleasant experience. Damages award £1,000.00.
