We have recently concluded a case for K, a Polish national, living and working in the UK. K was a pedestrian who was hit when crossing a road in London.
Our client suffered a significant orthopaedic and psychiatric injury which resulted in a prolonged absence from work, the need for further and extensive treatment, leaving her with a variety of ongoing and permanent symptoms.
The defendant's insurers admitted liability relatively early on. We were able to secure interim payments for our client throughout the duration of her case so as to relieve the financial burden she faced by not being able to work. Interim payments were also made available to enable treatment to go ahead on a private basis.
Proceedings were issued and served. There then followed settlement discussions with the defendant culminating in a final settlement figure of £50,000.
The case was involved in that it was necessary to secure both orthopaedic and psychiatric evidence. There was a substantial loss of earnings claim both in relation to past and future losses. The matter was dealt with our personal injury department on 020 7650 1200.
