I read with interest this week about the Jury award of £320,000 for a father and daughter who made a compensation claim following the devastating death of Caroline Hamilton in a road traffic accident. Mrs Hamilton died after she was involved in an accident shortly before Christmas 2007 involving a lorry near Fort William. Unfortunately, timber that was stacked on the back of a lorry, toppled off crushing Mrs Hamilton in her car.

The case was heard by a jury in the Court of Session. The owners of the lorry had already admitted liability and the determination for the jury was how much to award Ian Hamilton for the loss of his wife and Kirsty Hamilton for the loss of her mother.

It must have been awful for them to have to give evidence of their loss and in turn, but after hearing the evidence the jury awarded Mr Hamilton £180,000 and Miss Hamilton £140,000 in compensation.
