The claimant was involved in a relatively straight forward road traffic accident for which liability was admitted early on.
The claim was dealt with by the claimant himself and the insurers arranged the medical report. He involved Morgan Jones Pett at a latish stage.
Before the claimant had instructed Morgan Jones Pett he suffered a stroke which was unrelated to the accident. It was quite tricky to tease out the extent to which his inability to work and limitations were related to the accident and those related to the stroke.
The claimant suffered from a number of physical problems including neck pain, back pain, left hand thumb, index and middle finger pins and needles. The neck and back pain require physiotherapy.
There was an issue as to whether the carpal tunnel syndrome was caused as a result of the accident, although the insurers paid for this to be operated on privately. The claimant also suffered travel anxiety.
The case was proceeding in a MOJ Portal, although value road traffic accident claims, but settled for a figure significantly in excess of this.
