Express Solicitors wins RTA victim £19,000
As a passenger in a shunted vehicle in February 2006, Lizzy Boon from the Midlands suffered a moderate back injury.
Diagnosed with torn ligaments that led to ongoing back pain, Lizzy decided to make a claim with help from a well known national law firm. Ultimately, however, she ended up dissatisfied with the service and the £6,000 damages she was encouraged to accept.
Lizzy therefore took the time to research other law firms that might be able to help her achieve more realistic damages for her injuries and decided to enlist the help of Daniel Slade at Express Solicitors who, within just four months, had settled a claim for some £19,000.
She explains: “The previous firm I used was unhelpful and wouldn’t answer any of my questions. I had already changed solicitors within the firm three times and eventually I was encouraged to settle for £6,000. It was then I knew I had to start looking out for myself and find a new firm to look after my case.
“I saw from Express Solicitors’ website that it had successfully won more compensation for victims where other firms had failed, so I made contact straight away.
“Right from the very first phone call I found the solicitors and staff very helpful and friendly. Daniel worked hard on my case and within four months he had reached a settlement of £19,000 from the other driver’s insurance company. As you can imagine, I was both surprised and delighted.”
The £19,000 in damages Lizzy received covered the pain and suffering caused by her back injury and also domestic assistance from her family and friends.
“After the accident, I couldn’t do any chores around the house,” continues Lizzy, “so I relied on family and friends to come around and help out. The compensation I received also takes this into account.
“I am so pleased I trusted my gut instinct and used Express Solicitors. With help from medical experts, Daniel achieved an extra £13,000 for me in just four months, which is amazing as my case had been ongoing for three years. I would thoroughly recommend the firm to anyone in the same position I found myself in and encourage them never to settle for second best.”
