Our RTA team secured an out of court settlement on behalf of a West Midlands man who suffered a fracture to his spine in a road accident in late 2004. The injury unfortunately caused a chronic pain state to develop which severely affected his ability to work.
Settlement was reached in the sum of £500,000.
Stephen Nye of Irwin Mitchell in Birmingham, who represented the client, commented, "This is a case which I took over from other solicitors who were unable to progress the matter. My client was extremely unfortunate to develop such complications from his injury and the award of compensation recovered for him will provide financial security for him and his family in the future.
"He had initially been struck from behind by a lorry, an accident which was entirely avoidable had the driver of the lorry been paying proper attention".
