Man receives five figure sum for pelvic ring injury
Claire Newstead of our Leeds office helped our client recover compensation after he sustained serious injuries in a road traffic collision.
A car drove at speed through a red light and collided with our client’s vehicle whilst he was driving across a junction.
He sustained severe pelvic fractures and underwent surgery in order to fit an external fixator. Fractures to his ribs causing a pneumothorax, and soft tissue injuries to his back and knee were also sustained.
As our client was required to wear the fixator for two months, his mobility was greatly reduced. He was reliant upon his fiancée for practical help and support with domestic tasks and personal hygiene. He was also off work for several months and continues to suffer from pain and discomfort in his pelvic region and has been unable to participate in all of his pre-accident hobbies.
We negotiated a settlement in excess of £40,000 on our client’s behalf after the other party admitted liability. Our client can now undertake a structured physiotherapy package which should reduce the ongoing pain he experiences.
As a result of his compensation, our client will continue to benefit from physiotherapy support when he needs it, helping to ease his ongoing symptoms.
