Mrs P sustained serious personal injuries as a result of an accident that occurred when she was aged 40. Mrs P was driving to visit a friend when the driver of the car coming from the opposite direction veered into the path of her car. Mrs P’s four young children were also travelling with her at the time although, fortunately, were not as seriously injured as Mrs P. Mrs P sustained injuries of the upmost severity which initially left her virtually paralysed. Despite making remarkable progress, Mrs P is unable to walk and requires assistance with all activities of daily living.
Initially, Mrs P instructed solicitors appointed by her motor insurance company as she did not realise she needed to instruct a specialist team. After approximately 18 months she was dissatisfied with the progress that they had made and she contacted our specialist team who arranged a meeting at her home. We immediately contacted the Defendant’s solicitors and obtained additional interim payments to fund the assistance of a case manager and the purchase of an adapted vehicle.
An application was made for an interim payment of £1.25 million and this was agreed prior to the hearing taking place. This enabled Mrs P to proceed with the purchase of a property and to undertake adaptations. Her case ultimately settled for £4.25 million.
