So last year I was involved in a car accident, when my friend hit into another car, at the time I did not realize the painful injuries I suffered until a week later when I started getting pains in my neck, shoulders, arms, and lower back, I could not get up in the morning. So I decided to pursue a claim, this was my 4th accident claim in 5 years.
1st time I was paid out: £1700
2nd time I was paid out: £6530
3rd time I was paid out:£2200
4th time I was paid out: £560 (medical examiner said I was exaggerating my injuries)
And now this time I have only received an offer for: £5400
I am being ripped off that is way to low, I have anxiety and terrified of getting into a car, I am depressed and now I am even more depress over the very low offer, as I suffered so much pain, due to the fact that it also effected previous injuries.
I spoke to my solicitor, he said I should accept this offer, but if I don't then we will have to take it to court, and looking at my past history, and being so injury prone, I would not be in a good position.
Has anyone had experience of going to court for such a claim, and also just say for example your memory is slightly off or you mistakenly say something which might not be completely true, would that be seen as contempt? or just a minor issue?
