Irwin Mitchell’s Serious Injury team helped to secure a five-figure settlement for a man after he was knocked over by a car.
Our client was using a pelican crossing when a car ran into him causing serious injuries. The man suffered a broken femur as well as injuries to his neck, back and shoulder.
The man got in touch with our specialist serious injury lawyers to investigate the incident. Our legal team was able to secure a five-figure settlement on our client’s behalf after the driver’s insurance admitted full liability for the accident.
The settlement will be used to ensure that the man can access the help and support he needs to continue his rehabilitation and recovery.
The injury to our client’s leg required a course of physiotherapy as he found it difficult to walk. He also started to develop back problems as a result of his altered gait. He has been referred to an orthotics specialist and will need to wear specialist footwear for the rest of his life.
Andrea Burke, one of our expert serious injury lawyers represented the client and in relation to the case, she said: “Our client suffered very serious and life-changing injuries when he was knocked over and it has had a significant impact on his life.
“He needed extensive physiotherapy to help him overcome his injuries and still has a long road to recovery ahead of him although he is making fantastic progress in his rehabilitation.
“We are delighted to have been able to secure a settlement which will enable him to buy the specialist footwear he requires, as well as help him access the therapy he needs to get his life back on track and put this ordeal behind him.”
