Our Personal Injury Solicitors obtained compensation for a postal worker following a road traffic accident at work.

Our client was carrying out his duties as a postman when he was hit by a car which was driven onto the property drive at speed. Despite the fact that our client was wearing a high-visibility jacket, the driver of the car failed to stop in time. 

When our client was hit by the car he fell and twisted his knee, sustaining soft tissue and ligament damage. Since this accident our client has suffered with pain and discomfort in his knee for 2 years. 

Upon taking on the claim, in order to work out a fair amount of compensation, our Personal Injury Solicitors made sure that our client was seen by an appropriate medical expert and that further investigative procedures were carried out to ascertain the full extent of his injuries. 

Investigations were also carried out to ascertain the insurers of the driver so that our Solicitors could liaise directly with them in order to settle the issue of liability.

We settled the claim with the defendants admitting full liability for the accident. Our client received £3,800 compensation for his injuries.
