Family win road accident claim for accident 14 years ago

After a 14-year battle, a family whose son was involved in a motorway accident have finally been successful in their road accident claim and have received a payout.

Following the collision, which occurred in 1998, the victim who was 8-years-old at the time suffered permanent brain damage.

Now 22-years-old, the young man won a High Court payout which will ensure that he is able to receive proper care for the rest of his life.

The victim was travelling in a car with his twin brother, mother and a family friend when the car collided with another stationary unlit vehicle in the middle lane. It was discovered that the driver of the stationery vehicle had fallen asleep at the wheel, however, no charges were brought against them.

Although the victim's mother contacted solicitors after the car accident, a damages claim could not be secured until her son had fully matured and his long-term and permanent injuries could be assessed.

It has not been reported how much money the family received from road accident claim payout.
