In fatal accidents it is all about finding out the facts
A teenage girl was knocked down and killed whilst she crossed the road after exiting a school bus. The circumstances of the accident were tragic and we were instructed principally to try to investigate precisely how the collision occurred. We felt that blame attached to the driver on the basis of her failure to properly modify her speed as she passed a school bus where children were visible. We arranged for specialist reports to reconstruct the collision and took statements from all witnesses present. Ultimately, despite intense disputes on liability, the case settled for a modest amount, short of a full court hearing and the family felt that the result was one they were very pleased.
The client said: "I cannot begin to tell you what this means to me and the children. I know I will never truly know the full details of what happened that day, but you have given me something that is priceless and for that I thank you. Without you I would never have know as much details as I now do."
