Our client Sarah was seriously injured when she was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle. The other driver, who has now been convicted, was driving at high speed on the wrong side of the road.
Following the accident Sarah was taken to hospital and treated for serious orthopaedic and internal injuries. Her injuries included complex hip fractures, dislocation and injury to the sciatic nerve.
Since the accident Sarah has been determined to get better and regain her independence and if possible return to work on a part time basis. Unfortunately, due to the seriousness of her injuries, Sarah’s future prospects are not assured.
Ann Houghton, a solicitor from Irwin Mitchell’s Serious Injury team in Birmingham represented Sarah in her compensation claim and successfully negotiated £150,000 in an out of court settlement on Sarah’s behalf.
Ann Houghton commented: “This was a very good result for my client. Sarah has been fully committed to her recovery and has endeavoured to be positive about her future, however, the reality is that she may require further surgery in the future and need more assistance. This award provides her and her family with security and peace of mind about the future.”
Sarah said: “I have been overwhelmed by the sincerity and professionalism of all the staff I have encountered at Irwin Mitchell and their sheer hard work and determination to achieve the best outcome for my future. I have received constant support from Ann, she has felt very much like my guardian angel at times as she has guided me through the process of claiming compensation. I am delighted with the compensation that has been secured for my future and I feel extremely fortunate that Irwin Mitchell represented me.”
