In June 2010 our client was driving a car, with his son and daughter as passengers, when they were struck by a vehicle driven by a woman who had no insurance.
The client fractured his sternum and also suffered soft tissue injuries to his thumb, back and hips. His car was also extensively damaged and he had to take a number of weeks off work as a result.
The car used by the uninsured driver belonged to her partner and she had allegedly taken it without his permission. She was prosecuted for aggravated vehicle taking, dangerous driving, not possessing a licence and not having insurance.
She was disqualified from driving and sentenced to six months imprisonment, suspended for 24 months.
Despite the defendant being uninsured, Irwin Mitchell successfully claimed compensation for our client by way of an application to the Motor Insurers' Bureau under their Uninsured Driver Agreement.
