Our client was using a pedestrian crossing to cross a road when she was hit by a speeding car. The driver was not paying attention to the road and had been travelling over the speed limit.
Our client sustained multiple fractures and suffered from psychological symptoms from the trauma of the event, resulting in a lengthy and complex recovery period.
Stephen Nye, Partner in our Birmingham office handled the claim and commented, “this serious incident arose from very poor driving by a young driver. It was entirely avoidable. My client sustained multiple fractures and scars. Her ability to work and to raise her family has been adversely affected. In addition to recovering substantial damages for my client, I was able to access rehabilitation support during the claim, which enabled my client to access therapy and much needed surgical revision. As a result, her overall recovery was much better than expected. Her award will provide her with future financial security".
