Head Injury Claim For Pedestrian – £1.7M Settlement
Mr Wheelden suffered a serious head injury when he was knocked down by a careless driver.
He was crossing the road on the way home from his girlfriend’s house. The driver then left the scene without stopping.
Our client was left with brain injuries which will affect him for the rest of his life.
He was originally represented by other solicitors who went out of business.
Cases involving a serious head injury require an enormous amount of expert evidence.
We gathered all that evidence and arranged for Mr Wheeldon to be represented by a QC.
The insurers for the driver then agreed to attend a Joint Settlement Meeting a few weeks before the trial.
After a long day of negotiations, we reached a settlement worth £1.7 million.
The settlement will allow our client to buy the house he needs and arrange all the medical care he will require for the rest of his life.
