Car accident compensation approved in complex motorway tragedy

For the widow and two surviving children of a talented solicitor who lost his life in a terrible car accident, compensation has finally been awarded after five years of waiting.

Tragically, it was the late solicitor's wife who was driving the family car when it was involved in a collision on the M27 between junctions 2 and 3 in 2002. The woman's husband and one of her twin daughters died in the car accident, while one of the twins and the woman's son survived the collision.

The amount of the car accident compensation payout has not been made public. However, it is understood to be a six figure sum.

The judge overseeing the compensation payout at London's High Court said that the case was 'complicated' by a 2005 ruling which had found that the widowed woman had been solely responsible for the car accident on the motorway, rejecting her claim that the collision had been caused by an oncoming van.

The compensation claim, calculated on the basis of 'loss of dependency', was made against the woman's motor insurers.

The two children are also entitled to claim car accident compensation for the personal injuries they suffered in the collision, though the exact amount of the payouts is yet to be decided.
