Significant settlement award secured for injuries suffered as a result of a road traffic accident
Amy and the Litigation Team represented a Client who suffered serious injuries as a result of a collision which occurred when the driver of another vehicle attempted to overtake our client. Not only did our Client suffer serious injuries, both physical and psychological, but he also suffered significant financial loss as a result of medical expenses incurred.
High Court proceedings were issued on behalf of our Client and liability was subsequently admitted.
Amy and the team successfully achieved a substantial settlement for this Client without the need to go to Court.
