Woman receives compensation for amputated leg
Our client, who is only in her twenties, lost her right leg below the knee after a driver drove his vehicle onto the pavement where she was standing and collided with her.
Claire Newstead in our Leeds Serious Injury team has successfully recovered compensation for our client following the serious injuries she sustained.
Our client continues to suffer from pain in the region of the amputated limb and needs to use a mobility scooter in order to travel outdoors. Her ability to work has been affected and she suffered a severe psychological reaction following the accident.
Claire negotiated a settlement of over £1 million with the driver’s insurers to cover the injuries which the woman sustained, her additional losses and the costs which she is likely to incur in future as a result of her amputated leg.
The injuries suffered by our client in this accident should serve as a reminder to all drivers of the need to exercise proper skill and care when driving.
