£125,000 obtained for girl injured in road collision in Essex
Mick Upton, a personal injury claim specialist at Ashtons Legal, has obtained a settlement of £125,000 for a teenager who suffered serious injuries when the car in which she was a passenger collided with another vehicle.
Ms W suffered a range of orthopaedic injuries and a damaged spleen which had to be removed leaving her potentially reliant on taking life-long antibiotics due to a compromised immune system.
Although her orthopaedic injuries are healing, she currently still suffers a range of symptoms which are affecting both the type of work she is able to undertake and her education. She has both physical scarring from her injuries and psychological damage from the accident.
Mick comments: “The insurers representing the driver who caused the incident made an early offer of £75,000. With further negotiation, a settlement was eventually agreed at just over £125,000. This is just one of many examples we see where insurance companies try to settle a claim at a level which is not actually going to provide the injured person with the compensation they need to fund their rehabilitation and to help them get their lives back on track. I’m pleased to have been able to help Ms W to achieve the result she deserved.”
