Irwin Mitchell successfully secures compensation for Coventry lady following road traffic accident
Our client Sarah was seriously injured when she was involved in a head-on car collision, caused by the other vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road and at speed. The driver has since been convicted.
As a result of the road traffic accident, Sarah sustained serious orthopaedic and internal injuries, including complex hip fractures and dislocation involving damage to the sciatic nerve. Sarah was determined to recover, regain her independence and return to work (albeit part time) but the severity of the injuries she sustained meant her future was not secure.
Sarah instructed expert solicitor Ann Houghton, from Irwin Mitchell’s Serious Injury team in Birmingham to represent her claim for compensation. Ann negotiated £150,000 in compensation in an out of court settlement on Sarah’s behalf.
Ann Houghton said “This was a very good result for my client. Sarah has been fully committed to her recovery and has endeavoured to be positive about her future, however, the reality is that she may require further surgery in the future and need more assistance. This award provides her and her family with security and peace of mind about the future.”
Sarah commented “I have been overwhelmed by the sincerity and professionalism of all the staff I have encountered at Irwin Mitchell and their sheer hard work and determination to achieve the best outcome for my future. I have received constant support from Ann, she has felt very much like my guardian angel at times as she has guided me through the process of claiming compensation. I am delighted with the compensation that has been secured for my future and I feel extremely fortunate that Irwin Mitchell represented me.”
