We secured compensation for a 73-year-old woman who was injured when she was hit by a reversing van in a Tesco car park.
After being knocked to the ground by the van, her head was cut open and she was rushed to hospital where she was treated for a head injury and swelling to the brain.
Our client was left with bruising on her face and acute pain to the back of her head from the cut. Although her physical injuries have since healed, she suffers psychologically and has visited a therapist to manage her post accident anxiety.
She said: “I know that I am lucky to be alive. The pain after the accident was excruciating and I found it almost impossible to sleep for months because of it. Although physically I was thankfully only affected for a few months, I’m still learning to manage my anxiety.
“I didn’t even consider driving for more than six months after and I still feel nervous whenever I’m around vehicles. The compensation has certainly helped because I know that someone has been held responsible and this is all down to Thompsons Solicitors.”
