Our client was travelling as a passenger on a bus when she was injured, fracturing her wrist.
Our client, who was 82 at the time of the accident, was injured when the driver pulled away suddenly before she was seated, causing her to fall and fracture her right wrist.
It is often difficult to prove that the driver was at fault in this situation, however thanks to Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Personal Injury team, we were able to secure liability very early in the case. Our client received £7,382 in compensation; including over £2,000 in personal care support for the client which is generous given our client was elderly.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury as a passenger in a vehicle, our road traffic accident claims team could help you secure compensation. Visit our Passenger Accident Compensation page for more information.
