Three generations of the one family were involved in a very serious car accident as a result of a head on collision.
The Grandmother was driving. The Mother, was in the front passenger seat wearing a seatbelt and the daughter aged only 8 at the time was in the rear seat wearing a seatbelt. They all sustained varying degrees of injury and all sought out the advice of Thompsons Personal Injury Solicitors.
The Mother received £29,000 in compensation and the daughter received £30,000 in compensation. The grandmother received £80,000.
This figure was particularly high when it is considered that the grandmother did not have any loss of earnings and the entire sum related to compensation for pain and suffering.
