A passenger who received serious injuries when the car he was travelling in was hit by a lorry has been awarded personal injury compensation of more than £12,000.
At the time of the incident, the car was stuck at the back of a stationary queue of traffic. A large lorry crashed into the back of the car and it was shunted into the vehicle in front.
The passenger was knocked unconscious for a short time and he suffered several injuries, including abdominal injuries, cracked ribs and a fractured arm. As a result of the accident, the man had to take a lot of time off work and he needed help with home and personal care during his recuperation period.
The man contacted a firm of personal injury solicitors and asked them to file a personal injury claim against the driver of the lorry. The driver’s insurance company accepted liability for the accident, and based on medical reports, the two sides began negotiating a settlement.
The compensation award took into consideration loss of earnings and the costs he incurred for care, medication and travel.
