Our client, who was 83 years old at the time of the accident, was hit by a car in April 2009 as she attempted to cross a road on foot.
Our Claimant suffered a broken leg which caused damage to the total knee replacement our client had undergone prior to the accident. At first, this was managed as conservatively as possible, by providing our client with a plaster and a splint. However, roughly two months after the accident, it became necessary for our client to undergo surgery redo part of the knee replacement.
At first, the Defendants denied liability, claiming that that our Claimant had wandered into the road and walked into the Defendants’ vehicle. Finally, thanks to the work of Irwin Mitchell’s solicitors, liability was agreed on a joint basis and in April 2012, our client recovered £7,500 in an out of Court settlement.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a pedestrian, our serious injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Pedestrian Accident Claims page for more information.
