Legal support from Hudgell Solicitors’ specialist road traffic accident claims team helped secure HGV driver Steve Turpin £20,000 damages and crucial psychological support which helped him get back on the road. He suffered long-term injuries to his neck and lower back, and pins and needles down his left arm and both legs as a result of his accident.

The legal process

This case was settled by insurers of the other driver without any dispute over liability or the need for court hearing.

Settlement

A key part of this case was psychological support for Mr Turpin, as he had suffered a re-emergence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), having been involved in a serious accident some 19 years earlier. Our team arranged 21 sessions of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy alongside securing the £20,000 damages.

Hudgell Solicitors comment

“In this case our support was crucial in helping Mr Turpin return to a state of mind where he was happy again in his work, having at one stage felt like he couldn’t really continue. It would have had a huge impact on his life had he been unable to continue working as a driver, so we were delighted to help him receive the support he needed.” – Andy Ulridge – personal injury team.

Client comment

“The psychiatric support I received through my claim was key for me, without doubt, it was excellent. I only really truly appreciated how much the sessions had done for me when I had completed them. I realised that I’d been using my coping strategies and that it had helped me feel comfortable driving again.” – Steve Turpin.
