A 50-year-old client who suffered a stroke 5 weeks after car crash receives over £40,000 in compensation

  • Posted on

Our client suffered minor whiplash injuries in a road traffic accident. However five weeks later she woke up one morning and had lost all feeling down her right side and was advised she had suffered a stroke.

Upon discharge from hospital she sought advice from us as to whether the accident had caused the stroke. Medical evidence established that the accident caused the stroke and through interviewing family and friends we were able to show personality changes and physical difficulties which our client suffered. Medical evidence also showed that pre-existing toe problems had been made worse through the stroke.

We obtained £40,700 in damages for her injuries and financial losses, to put her as much as possible back to her pre-accident position.
