Our client from Northfield in Birmingham has recovered damages of £145,000 in respect of serious orthopaedic injuries sustained in a road accident.
The injuries were sustained in a head on collision, the other driver having crossed onto the wrong side of the road. Our client was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and could do nothing to avoid the impact. Now in his seventies, our client has made a reasonable recovery from the multiple fractures he sustained.
Stephen Nye, Partner at our Birmingham office handled the claim and commented, "My client has suffered greatly as a result of the dangerous and irresponsible driving of another person. He had been a very fit and active man for his age and was looking forward to an active retirement. Whilst he has done well in terms of recovery from his injuries, he has some permanent symptoms which have significantly limited his participation in his hobbies and leisure pursuits. His award of damages will ensure that he is able to access future medical treatment and therapy".
