Hi, I'm just writing to see if anyone has had similar experience of going through a compensation claim. I had a RTA 17 months ago and the other driver admitted liability which the insurers accept. I was diagnosed with concussion by the hospital and a couple of months later the GP diagnosed post concussion syndrome. I was very unwell last year and had 7 and a half months off work and then managed to go back to work doing 12 hours a week in January and I can still only manage 19 hours a week work now which I am struggling with. I have had 4 assessments set up by the solicitor which I had to travel across London for. The problem is each specialist is saying a different thing and the neurologist said that I dont have neurological injuries because the CT scan was clear and that it is a musculoskeletal injury from the whiplash that has caused chronic migraine and this is causing fatigue. However, he does not address my cognitive difficulties, or the post concussion diagnosis. The problem is the insurers have been very tactical and made a part 36 offer and have given me 7 days to accept or they will withdraw it. Based on the neurological report the solicitor now says it is a good offer and I would be at risk if I dont accept it. I have emailed my concerns which will be sent back to the neurologist but it can take months to sort out. Their offer basically will cover about one years loss of earnings, I dont know what to do and haven't got the energy to fight this further, it has been so exhausting when I'm already dealing with chronic fatigue.
Has anyone else had experience of this or advice on what to do?
