An out of court settlement amounting to £400,000 has been awarded to a young Staffordshire woman following a serious road crash.
The accident happened as she was travelling home from University in Manchester with a friend. Another vehicle lost control and veered into the vehicle in which she was travelling. She sustained fractures to all four limbs and a mild head injury. Many operations and months of treatment were required.
Stephen Nye, Partner at our Birmingham office, handled the claim and commented: "My client was very seriously injured and missed a great deal of her studies during her recovery. Due to her fierce determination she was able to successfully complete her degree and is now hoping to use some of her settlement award to fund a place at film school.
“She is a very talented young artist who has been through a considerable ordeal. Her case is another example of how inattention by one driver can have very serious consequences for other road users.”
