Road Traffic Accident
Our work did not end once liability was established, in fact it was just beginning as the Claimant was recommended rehabilitative therapy before obtaining further expert evidence to comment on the impact of her brain injury on her future life and the support she would need to support her. With liability accepted, we were able to obtain interim payments to arrange rehabilitation immediately. It was essential to get the right case management company and case manager involved as brain injury, especially for a child, required the right expertise and team of therapists.
In a complex and high value case like this it is very important that the solicitors you instruct have the financial resources to pay for the best engineering experts and medico-legal experts in the UK. In this particular case each party instructed 12 experts from different medical fields including leading experts in prosthesis who gave the evidence on various type of prosthetics that could be available to our kind including bio mechanical arms and latest state-of-the-art prosthetics.
Can a pedestrian claim compensation if he was intoxicated at the time of the accident? The fact that the pedestrian had been drinking is not decisive on its own. It is not negligent to be drunk but if you walk along the carriageway of the road with your back to the traffic, then that is contributory negligence. In serious injury cases, Levenes will recommend that any CCTV is properly analysed and considered.
Levenes solicitors have secured compensation for a young motorcyclist who was hit by a van which emerged from a minor road, failing to give precedence. The van had been waiting to cross the major road which required the driver to pay a very good attention to the traffic coming from both directions.
Sometimes the claims process can seem like a battle between David and Goliath, because the insurer seems to have all the resources to fight the case, and the injured person is all alone. With Levenes, you are not alone. We will enable you to take on the insurer and fight hard for you.
Injuries caused by car doors being opened into the path of cyclists and motorcyclists happen quite often and sometimes have very serious and even fatal consequences. Levenes have conducted many of these cases to a successful conclusion and although they can sometimes involve a fight, we do not recall ever losing such a case.
Making a claim for compensation is not just about money, it is also about securing treatment and rehabilitation. In this case, although liability was not admitted, it was still possible to proceed with the case and secure a settlement.
Making a claim for compensation for brain injury has unlocked treatment for our client which he could not have obtained in any other way. At Levenes we want to maximise your personal injury compensation after brain injury, but we also want to ensure that you make the best recovery that you can.
Although liability was in dispute at first, Levenes were able to obtain £90,000.00 for the Claimant’s injuries and financial losses as well as for future treatment. You can trust the experience and knowledge of our team of professional road accident compensation lawyers and be sure that you will receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.
