Stacey Scott was driving along Boghead Road, Kirkintilloch with her four-month old child when she spotted a car coming the other direction – but onto her side of the road.

She pulled over as far as she could and kept beeping her horn, but the other driver didn’t look up until the last minute and hit her.

As a consequence the other driver was charged with careless driving. Ms Scott’s car was also so badly damaged it was written off and she was forced to buy an older car.

Compensation secured with court action

Although liability was admitted fairly early on, the insurers failed to make a compensation offer to settle the case.

Our solicitors then raised the claim in court which was all funded using our no win no fee funding model, Compensate. This meant in the event the case was not successful, Ms Scott was not liable to pay a penny.

In the end, our solicitors secured a settlement of £8,000 which was happily accepted by Ms Scott.
