Our Serious Injury team have secured a six figure settlement for a Leeds man who was left with permanently brain damaged after being hit by a car.
In October 2012 our client was hit by a car while he was crossing the Leeds ring road from a pedestrian island. The accident left him with serious brain and orthopaedic injuries and he is now wheelchair bound, suffering with ongoing difficulties including: fatigue, behaviour, vulnerability and a tremor.
Liability for the accident was strongly contested by both sides. The traffic lights controlling the junction were in the defendants favour but, through expert Accident Reconstruction and medical evidence, we were able to settle the case in our client’s favour.
Now living with permanent disabilities, the six figure settlement will enable our client to access the future care and therapy he needs to ensure he has the best quality of life possible.
Hema Rana, an associate solicitor in the Serious Injury team at Irwin Mitchell, said this of the case’s outcome: “I am delighted that we have reached a result that will allow our client to receive the care and rehabilitation he needs in future.”
Our client’s father, who was his Litigation Friend in the case, also said: “Hema was very helpful and approachable. We are very pleased with the service provided by Irwin Mitchell and with the outcome of the case.”
