Thompsons Solicitors has recovered substantial damages for a member of the travelling community who suffered catastrophic injuries when hit at speed by a car. Although the police declined to press charges, Thompsons took up the case on behalf of the family, whose lives are now devoted to looking after their severely injured relative. 

After a lengthy fight, a multi-million pound settlement was obtained that will allow the claimant to live in appropriate accommodation, suitably supported for the rest of his life.  

Trevor Hall, a serious injury solicitor at Thompsons who worked on the case, said: “After a road traffic accident where the claimant suffered catastrophic injuries, his family faced a hard-fought damages claim where liability was denied throughout. I am pleased that the significant settlement we achieved together offers a much more promising future with appropriate treatment care and accommodation.”
