A 25-year-old man from Northern Ireland was awarded £6million after experiencing horrific injuries as a result of a high speed car crash. The man, who cannot be named due to legal reasons, suffered major bone injuries as well as receiving brain damage as a result of the accident. This case was one of the biggest of this kind in recent times and the injured man was awarded this sum after the amount was agreed at Belfast High Court last month. The driver of the car was arrested and subsequently jailed for causing these injuries to the 25-year-old, who was a passenger at the time of the accident. The passenger decided to employ lawyers and a lawsuit began whereby the 25-year-old sued the driver over the horrific injuries that he suffered. Although the driver failed to admit any liability for the accident, when the settlement was eventually reached, he was found to be guilty and the record-breaking payout amount was awarded. The disabled man’s family were quoted as being ‘relieved and grateful’.
Making a claim for a car crash
If you have been involved in a high speed car crash that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim for financial compensation. If there is evidence that another person may have been displaying negligence that caused the motor accident, you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline. Even a minor car crash at relatively low speeds can result in serious injuries that are not only painful, but could also mean loss of earnings through extended recovery time away from work. If the driver fails to admit any liability, you may still be able to make a claim for your personal injuries and suffering.
