Compensation news

Road accident victim eligible for compensation

Insurers for a hit-and-run driver, who was found 75% responsible for the brain injury suffered by a pedestrian with whom he collided in a road traffic accident, have agreed their client should accept the blame and make a compensation payment to the victim.

Six years after the crash involving a five-litre BMW car, the West Ealing man who formerly worked as a carpenter, is still living at a rehabilitation unit and is expected to never work or be able to care for himself again.

Through his mother, the victim made a claim for damages for his disablement which happened after he crossed the road near Ealing fire station in September 2004.

Evidence was put to the High Court by a fire fighter who saw the accident. It was also stated that the car driver had been speeding.

A solicitor for the man involved in the vehicle accident said her client would continue to need treatment for his life-changing injuries.

Making a decision on liability, the judge said a number of issues would still have to be decided before an amount of personal injury compensation could be agreed.
