The accident claim solicitors at Romain Coleman once concluded a claim for a client who suffered catastrophic injuries in a motor accident when she was struck by a car while on her way to work. As a result of the accident, she lost a leg, sustained devastating injuries to both her eyes rendering her blind, and suffered other appalling injuries to the rest of her body. The upshot of it is she now requires full-time care for the rest of her life.
Our team of accident claim and personal injury solicitors were instructed some months after the accident and saw her immediately. We progressed the claim as quickly as possible and obtained an early interim payment first. We assembled a team of experts and Counsel to pursue the claim vigorously and effectively. After a relatively short time, we managed to force the insurers to finance her transfer from hospital to a very comfortable care home while we sought for a house to buy, one that could be converted for her needs. A property was identified by specialist architects who knew how to convert properties for use by a severely disabled person. We also set up an entire care package for her with a Case Manager to manage her care.
At one point, the insurance company was unwilling to stump up the necessary funds to purchase the property and adapt it, so we made an application to the Court for interim damages and was awarded very quickly. The substantial award allowed our team to purchase the property for the client and have it adapted for her needs. Throughout the process, our solicitors paid personal attention and made it as effortless as possible for the client.
After the property purchase, we continued to work relentlessly to pursue her claim until a further significant award of damages was made, together with periodical payments that aim to cover her care needs and the maintenance of the property for the rest of her life.
The case above illustrates the difference an experienced accident claim and personal injury solicitor can make to you and your family should the unfortunate event of sustaining devastating injuries happen.
