Every year thousands of people are involved in road traffic accidents where they are not at fault, the majority of road traffic accidents can be caused by driver error whether it be misjudging a situation, lack of concentration or being distracted by something for example using a mobile phone whilst driving. At Thompsons our accident compensation solicitors help victims of road traffic accidents claim the compensation they deserve on a daily basis and our No Win No Fee policy means that we take care of the financial burden of legal action at an already stressful time for our clients.
Recently Anne-Marie Bint was working as a lollipop lady when she was standing in the middle of the road displaying her stick in order to stop traffic and let some school children across the road when a car drove up from behind her and knocked her to the ground.
The driver did not stop, but was later identified by the police and convicted of various traffic offences. Anne-Marie suffered personal injuries to her right knee and wrist as a result of the accident. She was also left with serious psychological trauma which affected her ability to work. She had to have counseling for a significant period of time before being able to return to the road where the accident happened.
Due to these factors she decided to seek compensation from the driver’s insurer. They offered a compensation settlement which was fairly low which Anne-Marie chose not to take, and her lawyer’s were able to secure a substantially larger sum in court.
