Our specialist head injury team have successfully recovered compensation for a gentleman who was injured when a collision occurred between himself and an ambulance vehicle.
The man sustained orthopaedic injuries together with a severe brain injury which has caused him profound difficulties with memory, language and spatial awareness. As a result, he has extensive needs, including assistance with personal care and daily living.
There were no independent witnesses to the accident and the Defendant maintained that the gentleman fell into the ambulance. As a result, liability for the accident was denied throughout the proceedings leading to the parties having to obtain forensic evidence from a pathologist and an orthopaedic expert on order to ascertain how the injuries were caused.
Carolyn Heaton and Hema Rana of our Leeds office obtained a six figure sum on behalf of our client. The compensation will ensure that a real difference can be made to the gentleman’s life, and help make things easier for those caring for him.
