£625,000 settlement in fatal accident case

  • Posted

Michael Wangermann, a personal injury and fatal accident claim specialist at Ashtons Legal, brought a claim on behalf of a widow, Mrs H, whose husband was tragically killed whilst driving to work.

The value of the claim was hotly disputed and it was only after Court proceedings were issued, with a trial looming, that the insurers finally saw sense and started to enter into serious negotiations.  Having secured the evidence required in order to ensure that the correct level of compensation was achieved, Michael was able to negotiate a settlement of £625,000, which represented a significant increase on the amount previously offered by the insurers.

Michael comments: “Fatal accident claims vary greatly depending on the circumstances of the person who has died.  If the person who has been killed has family responsibilities and a substantial income then the value of the claim may be quite high.  While money can certainly never replace a loved one, this settlement will help to ensure that Mr H’s family are not worse off financially because of his untimely death”.
