Levenes was instructed by Mr B, who worked as a self-employed lorry driver.
Mr B had climbed onto the back of his lorry in order to assist in loading and arranging goods onto the vehicle. Suddenly he fell backwards from a height of approximately 4 feet striking his head and losing consciousness.
It was later discovered at hospital that Mr B had lost consciousness for about 2 minutes after the fall and that he was unable to recall the events leading up to the accident or the accident itself.
Serious Injury Solicitors
Levenes solicitors provide immediate advice on claiming compensation and arranging rehabilitation and care. Our lawyers offer advice and support throughout this difficult period.
Mr B was examined by various medical experts, including a Spinal Surgeon and Consultant Neurologist, who provided their opinion and prognosis on the injuries sustained.
The insurers for the company for which Mr B worked admitted liability for the accident. As there was no agreement reached between Levenes Solicitors and the insurers of the employer regarding the amount of damages, proceedings were issued.
Interim Payments for Accident Compensation
Offers were made by both parties. Mr B claimed damages for his physical and psychological injuries, travel expenses to and from Romania, medical examinations, as well as care and assistance received from loved ones. His claim also included the costs of future treatment and future loss of earning capacity.
Levenes were able to obtain from the employers’ insurers interim payments across the period of the claim to pay for treatment and rehabilitation which helped him to make a better recovery from his injuries.
Upon further negotiations taking place between Levenes and the insurers, Mr B was able to obtain a settlement of £200,000.
