We acted for a young boy (aged 9) who had been involved in a frightening accident during July 2006 when he was struck by a car whilst walking across a zebra crossing. The impact was on his right lower leg causing an open fracture of his tibia bone. He was rushed to hospital by air ambulance and required emergency surgery. A further two operations were undertaken later on.

Fortunately, he was able to return to school after a relatively short period of time and made an excellent recovery from his injury. His treating doctors were particularly happy with him and felt it was very unlikely that he would have any future problems. Liability was initially disputed but after obtaining a report from our own Accident Reconstruction expert the insurers of the other driver conceded liability. After some negotiations we were able to settle this case without the need to issue proceedings.
