Compensation after a road traffic accident – injury solicitor in Plumpton
People that use roads are expected to do so in a reasonable manner so that everyone is safe and the risk of accidents happening is kept to a minimum. If a driver does not take care on the road and causes an accident, it is only fair that they are asked to pay compensation. No concessions are allowed for drivers that are learning or other inexperienced drivers. If the accident was a shared error between two drivers you will still be able to claim compensation, however, it might be reduced to reflect your involvement. If the damage is caused by a driver that does not have insurance, the cost of the damage will be met by the bureau of motor insurers. The bureau of motor insurers will also pay the damages in cases where the other party cannot be traced.
Successful compensation case for a road traffic accident
A thirty year old man was the passenger in a car which left the road and collided with a tree. The collision resulted in a man sustaining a major head injury and damage to the soft tissues in his neck and back. The man also has a loss of hearing in his right ear. The consequences of the injury to his head left the man with a poor memory, loss of motivation and drive, severe loss of concentration, reduction in the speed of thought and also a fundamental change in his personality and reactive depression which led to severe and chronic anxiety. The major head injury that the man sustained altered his day to day life. Prior to the accident the man had been working as an analyst of computer systems and he was very ambitious and capable. The head injury that he sustained meant that he was never able to return to paid work. After being discharged from hospital the man relied on his partner for support and care which put a considerable amount of strain on the relationship. The man needed to get a carer 24 hours a day and a rehabilitation plan was designed for the man to follow. The man received an out of court settlement of four million pounds due to the severe effect that the accident had on his standard of living. The amount of compensation that the man received included compensation for the injury, future and past loss of earnings, past and future care requirements, rehabilitation costs, loss of pension, costs for future domestic assistance, costs for future medical treatment and costs for the court of protection. Our injury solicitor in Plumpton will be able to assist you to get the compensation that you are entitled to.
