Pedestrian injured in a road traffic accident awarded £100K
Levenes acted for a Colombian client who suffered a brain injury as a consequence of a road traffic accident.
The client was a pedestrian and was hit by a motorcyclist whilst crossing a busy central London road on a rainy night in winter. He was in the middle of the road with 2 other men when the motorcyclist, who had seen the men and could have easily avoided a collision, chose to speed up to try to speed past them, instead of slowing down to let them cross safely.
Our client was unconscious in hospital for few days and diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain injury. However he made a remarkable recovery. The Defendant’s Insurers denied liability and initially offered him £25K. When Levenes issued court proceedings they offered him £40K and finally offered him £100K, and the client opted to accept.
