Case Study

The plaintiff was involved in a road traffic accident and suffered severe headache, neck and back pain as a consequence. She was forced to take two days off work and to wear a cervical collar day and night for three weeks. Her back pain had cleared up after this time, but the neck pain recurred intermittently. Three months after the accident the plaintiff suffered a 10-day-long episode of severe neck pain. At the time of the trial she continued to suffer pain on about one day a month, associated with exertion or static posture. She was diagnosed as having some loss of lumbar lordosis and to be suffering from chronic whiplash syndrome, the residual effects of which were likely to be permanent. She had undergone physiotherapy, which included painful traction, and acupuncture. She had also received an epidural injection. Although her remaining symptoms were minor, the judge found that this was because of changes the plaintiff had made to her lifestyle. She was now nervous about driving and at increased vulnerability to further trauma. Award £5,212.98.

Facts
The plaintiff was involved in a rear-shunt road traffic accident in which she sustained a moderate whiplash injury to her neck. There was a slow improvement of symptoms, but she continued to take painkillers to alleviate them. At the time of settlement, she was largely asymptomatic, and a medical report indicated full recovery within 14 months. She could not work for one month, or do household chores. The plaintiff employed a cleaner. Award ££5,785.62.

Case Study 3

Plaintiff was given an anti-inflammatory preparation and painkillers but was unable to return to work for 18 days. Symptoms lingered for two-and-a-half to three months; thereafter there was one episode of exacerbation of neck pain. There was complete resolution of all symptoms one year post-injury.
Facts
The plaintiff, a deep sea diver, was driving his motor vehicle, which was struck from behind. He sustained a whiplash-type injury causing pain and restriction of movement in the morning. He was in shock for two days. He was given an anti-inflammatory preparation and painkillers but was unable to return to work for 18 days. The judge found that his injuries must have been comparatively minor if he was able to return to such strenuous work in just 18 days. Symptoms lingered for two-and- half to three months; thereafter there was one episode of exacerbation of the neck pain. There was complete resolution by the time of the hearing. Award £7,987.50.
