Car accident claim news

Family of injured boys may seek compensation

The insurers of a Manchester city footballer, who was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, may soon face a claim for fatal car accident compensation from the families of a deceased brother and sister whose car was struck by the 18-year-old's Mercedes on Saturday 1st September.

The woman who was killed had her two teenaged sons travelling with her in the Nissan Micra and they were also seriously injured in the car crash in Salford. Both suffered head injuries and one is in a critical condition. The boys have now been left parentless as their father apparently died a number of years ago.

Her deceased brother leaves a wife and two young children.

The Premier League team footballer and another driver, 19, were arrested by Greater Manchester Police, but were later released on bail.

A spokeswoman for Manchester City FC said, "It is a devastating tragedy for this family and also for the Greater Manchester community at large. Manchester City Football Club offers its heartfelt condolences to the family and all affected by the events of yesterday evening.

"The situation is subject to an extensive investigation by Greater Manchester police and therefore we are unable to make specific comment on the incident itself at this time."

Should the young driver be found guilty of causing the death of the brother and sister, and for causing the personal injuries to the boys, his insurers will be liable for any claim for compensation brought by the family with the help of personal injury solicitors.
