Our client turned to Thompsons Solicitors’ serious injury specialists to make a compensation claim after his wife suffered a catastrophic brain injury in a road traffic accident.
She was crossing a London road early in the morning when she was struck by a car. The accident has left her in a persistent vegetative state, unable to move or communicate.
She now lives in a nursing home and will need constant care for the rest of her life.
Thompsons Solicitors helped the woman’s husband make a compensation claim, securing a seven-figure settlement in court. The judge agreed that while the driver hadn’t broken the speed limit, they should have reduced their speed as it was a dark morning and the road was often busy with pedestrians using a nearby tube station. It was also noted by the judge that the driver had sufficient time to spot the woman and react accordingly, but failed to do so.
