Our Personal Injury Solicitors achieved a five-figure settlement for a woman who was knocked down by a vehicle in a supermarket car park.

 

What Happened

Our client was walking across a supermarket car park when a car drove into her and knocked her to the ground. As a result of this accident, our client endured several injuries. She suffered a fracture to her right shin, damage to her inner ear which resulted in an imbalance, a deep cut to her scalp, and internal damage to one of her elbows. She was in hospital for six days after the accident had occurred.

Our client underwent physiotherapy after the accident, and required care from her husband, as well as hiring a cleaner to help with the upkeep of their home. She also underwent treatment for her balance issues. This only slightly improved our client’s condition.

The accident occurred before our client was due to start a new job, so this was delayed for a month; she then started work on a part time basis, affecting her earnings.

Our client’s overall condition improved overtime, but she continued to experience discomfort with her fractured shin. Her sleep and self-confidence were affected by the accident, and she often thought about her accident due to its traumatic nature – she consequently suffered from low mood.

How we Helped

After getting in touch with us, Personal Injury Solicitor Simon Stanfield provided our client with the right support and guidance with regards to making a claim. She suffered many financial losses because of her accident, as well as the physical and mental anguish it left her in. We were able to help her gather relevant documents and medical reports to determine exactly what she had lost, and subsequently what she was entitled to.

The Outcome

We helped our client to achieve a compensation award of £90,000. With this amount, our client was able to cover all her medical costs, her physiotherapy sessions, and her loss of earnings due to starting her new job a month later than scheduled.
