Our client, a bus driver from Glasgow, contacted us via his union, Unite, in relation to the work accident injury he sustained in January 2019.
The work-related whiplash claim arose following a road traffic accident which occurred in the Govan area of Glasgow. As our client had slowed his bus in order to approach a bus stop another bus emerged from a side street and caused a side-on collision with the passenger side of our client’s vehicle. There were three passengers aboard the bus at the time of the RTA and two in the third party vehicle. The third party driver admitted liability for the RTA at the scene.
The road accident left our client with a sore head as well as pain and discomfort in his neck, shoulders and back. He was told by his GP to take two weeks off work, partly because he had been given co-codamol for pain relief, which meant that he was unable to drive.
Our client was diagnosed with a six-month soft-tissue injury. Thompsons personal injury solicitors in Scotland presented the defender with medical evidence detailing the claimant’s whiplash-style soft tissue injury to the neck and back. On 13 June 2019 we successfully negotiated an RTA compensation settlement of £3,400 which included sums for treatment costs and lost pay.
