We have been acting for a client (now aged 70) who was involved in a road traffic accident during November 2015.
Briefly, whilst she was driving her car along a road in Gloucestershire, another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction along the same road, attempted to overtake a lorry and then collided head-on with our client’s motorcar and she sustained a number of injuries including fractures to her right foot. She had to be taken by ambulance to hospital and underwent surgery.
She has made a reasonable recovery from her injuries but her foot is still painful especially if she either walks or stands for too long. She has been unable to return to some of her pre-accident activities such as dancing and now finds it more difficult to look after her young grandchildren.
Our client delayed in taking legal advice in that she hoped she would make a full recovery but as this did not happen, she consulted our firm. After making contact with the relevant insurers we were able to negotiate a settlement for her.
S J Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £35,000.00 for this client during 2018
