Acting for a 16 year old schoolboy who was hit by a Land Rover whilst crossing the road we secured as settlement of £15,000 which he will now use to help him through University.
Remarkably, despite being hit by such a large vehicle, he sustained very few if indeed any physical effects and the case revolved around finding out if he had sustained any brain damage as he was rendered unconcious.
Expert reports were commissioned and revealed that he had post traumatic amnesia and some chronic migraine brought on by the accident. The prognosis for full recovery or near full was given allowing us to proceed to value the case and achieve settlement to the delight of our young client.
This case shows how every pedestrian accident case needs careful and thorough handling because although no injury was apparent, the choice of the right experts can reveal quite serious and underlying effects.
