Irwin Mitchell’s serious injury team have successfully recovered compensation for a young man who was injured in a road traffic accident last year.
The man was travelling in the passenger seat of his friend’s car when the Defendant driver emerged from a side road and collided with them. As a result, their car was spun across the road into a third vehicle, causing our client to sustain serious injuries.
As a result of his injuries he struggled to mobilise for some time following the accident and required assistance with his personal care. Our client is now fully mobile but he continues to suffer from pain and he has not yet been able to return to work.
In separate criminal proceedings, the Defendant driver was convicted of driving without due care and attention, and his insurers subsequently confirmed that liability for our client’s injuries was not in dispute.
Nicola Perrott, from Irwin Mitchell’s Leeds office, helped our client to claim over £25,000 to compensate him for the injuries which he suffered and his additional losses.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a passenger in a vehicle, our personal injury lawyers could help you claim compensation. Visit our Passenger Injury Compensation page for more information.
