Janet KeenanAward winning Solicitors Thompsons has helped a road traffic accident victim secure £35,000 in compensation after being hit by a reversing car.

The woman was attempting to cross Portland Street in Troon when she was knocked to the ground by a car reversing at speed. The victim suffered a Colles fracture in her wrist and was forced to take early retirement as a result of her injuries.

As a member of her union, Unison she was entitled to free legal support from specialist trade union lawyers Thompsons through Unisons legal benefits scheme. Thompsons initiated a claim on the members’ behalf against the driver and liability was admitted.

Settlement was agreed out of court with the figure taking into account the future wage loss and the impact of taking early retirement. Janet Keenan of Thompsons Solicitors said: "This was an unfortunate accident which was entirely the result of a lack of due care by the driver and sadly will have a lasting impact on our client. This is a very good result and we are pleased to have been able to recover significant damages for our client."
