Following my major RTA on Christmas Eve I returned to work on a staged return on 15th Feb.
I have not used a shot gun since and my fox shooting and deer stalking has been seriously curtailed. I had been feeding my duck flight pond prior to the accident so that didnt happen we should of shot a dozen or so mallard over the last part of the season. I had to cancell my planned Boxing Day rough shoot and had to decline two invitations to go pheasant shooting in Shropshire(beat one, stand one). My physio advised not to use a shot gun until I was fully recovered, so ruled out any decoying, roost shooting and alike.
I can put a figure on the potential loss of my stalking thanks to a SD trade member for that info but what price do I put on the duck, rough, pheasant shooting? I didn't go foxing for 2 months, was mearly a passenger (poor lamp man as movement was so restricted).
Contrary to media stories of mega pay outs for whiplash the suggested claim would barely buy me a decent scope and bins.
Any suggestions for or actual payouts would be very helpfull.
My claim is being handled by specialist lawyers (NewLaw Cardiff) appinted via my insurance company.
