What’s My Claim Worth’s lawyers successfully settled a claim for a 16 year-old girl who was involved in a road traffic accident whilst travelling in a taxi.

Miss T was sitting in the back of a taxi with another two members of her family travelling along a main road when another vehicle failed to stop at a junction and pulled out of a side road hitting the nearside of the taxi.
Miss T’s family instructed What’s My Claim Worth to pursue a personal injury claim on her behalf and within 3 weeks of submitting the claim liability was admitted. A medical report was obtained which confirmed she had suffered neck pain, tenderness to her head from banging it on the window of the vehicle, right hip pain and shock.
As Miss T was only 16 at the time of the accident, we waited until she had made a full recovery prior to attempting settlement of her claim. Her Litigation Friend confirmed that she had made a full recovery within a short period of time and we received an offer to settle the claim in the sum of £1500 which was accepted. As Miss T was under 18 the court had to approve the terms of settlement.
