Our client was involved in a road traffic accident in Hull when the vehicle she was driving was struck by another vehicle as they were both entering a roundabout. She was in the right lane proceeding straight ahead.
The defendant, a foreign national, was in the left hand lane and was proceeding around the roundabout. The defendant was possibly not familiar with the area or with the usual rules of the road as they apply to roundabouts in the UK.
She sustained injuries to her left knee, right elbow, left elbow, neck and spine and lacerations form glass to her hands and arms. She required help and assistance around the home following the accident.
As a result of the injuries sustained, Irwin Mitchell specialist solicitors secured an out of court settlement in the sum of £13,000.
