The Claimant was injured when she was hit by a lorry at a road junction. One of the wheels of the lorry crushed her leg, causing multiple fractures that required surgery and extensive metal pinning.
Her claim was originally handled by another firm of solicitors, but she was unhappy with the slow progress of her case and subsequently decided to transfer her claim to this firm.
Upon review of the case papers, it quickly became clear that the expert medical evidence her previous solicitors obtained was inadequate and risked severely compromising the potential value of her claim. It was clear that her future employment capacity was severely compromised by the injuries she received in the accident.
Accordingly, further medical evidence was quickly obtained, and a schedule of her financial loss compiled, amounting to just over £275,000.
It was clear that her future employment capacity was significantly compromised by the injuries she received in the accident.
She ultimately received an award of damages for pain, suffering, and resulting financial loss in the total sum of £327,000 plus costs.
