Apprentice in Road Traffic Accident on Petrol Station Forecourt

Apr 16, 2013

Chris Wilson was a passenger involved in a road traffic accident.  The driver of his car had brought his vehicle to a halt in a petrol station when another car drove into them.  Chris was unfortunately hurt as a result, sustaining whiplash soft tissue injuries to his neck and back.  He had just started his apprenticeship, but had to struggle on with his work to make sure he kept his job.


The insurance companies for both drivers denied liability, each blaming the other driver for the collision, and failing to agree a split in the liability.  This forced Chris to raise court action to resolve the matter and obtain fair personal injury compensation. was instructed to deal with the road traffic case.  Based on the evidence, we advised that the action should be directed against the other driver only.  After discussions with the solicitor representing the other driver, and with the full hearing date approaching, Ross Slater was able to negotiate a settlement of £1000 for Chris.


“I am absolutely delighted,” said Chris. “The communication was great from  I was unsure about the court action, and didn’t know what to expect.  But I was kept fully informed about what was happening, and what was going to happen next.  You can’t ask for any better,” he added.
