Mrs X was a passenger in a taxi when a car drove into the rear of the taxi whilst it was stationary. As a result of the accident, Mrs X suffered a minor head injury with headaches, nausea and vomiting which settled over a period of 2 weeks.

For treatment of her injuries caused by the accident, she attended both Accident & Emergency and her own doctors.
