In this case study, we are going to look at the case of Miss K, as we will call her for privacy reasons, who was awarded £6,600 for a rib injury. Miss K was 23 at the time the accident occurred and 25 when she was awarded a payout for the claim. The accident occurred when Miss K was in her car, driving to the airport to go on holiday to Spain. She was involved in a rear end shunt. Immediately after the accident, she was left with pain in her neck, which had also travelled to her right shoulder by the time she got to the airport. The airline hosts and hostesses were reluctant to let Miss K onto the plane as her condition seemed so bad. She was in discomfort on the flight, and by the time she arrived at her destination the pain had increased in severity. Rather than getting to enjoy the holiday she had been planning, Miss K was admitted to hospital in Spain, then spent most of her holiday lying in bed, with a neck brace on.
What Injuries Were Sustained By The claimant?
When Miss K returned home, she saw her doctor and was immediately signed off work for 2 weeks. she was also prescribed painkillers. By this point, she had also developed severe rib, shoulder and neck pain. When she returned to work, Miss K found that her rib injury, as well as her neck and shoulder pain, made it difficult to sit at her desk and carry out her duties as a Business Banking Manager. Her quality of life was also impacted because she was no longer able to drive and her rib injury left her unable to sleep on her side.
Miss K underwent an examination 11 months after her injury. The expert judged the injury to her rib as non-severe and said it would settle within 15 months. The expert also judged her neck and shoulder injuries to resolve themselves within 15-18 months. Fortunately, within 18 months Miss K recovered from all of her injury symptoms.
What Did The Compensation Settlement Include?
Miss K (The Claimant) made a compensation claim, which involved a damaged rib injury claim. The Defendant, the driver who injured Miss K in the rear end shunt, admitted liability and paid Miss K £6,600 in damages. These were general damages that were awarded in court.
