Fault of the road traffic accident admitted but initial offer rejected – settlement reached at £30,000
Mr R. was a pedestrian who was knocked down by a car as he walked home. As a result of the accident, Mr R. sustained a fracture to his clavicle, rib fractures, and a fracture to his pelvis. As a result of his physical injuries, Mr R. temporarily lost some of his mobility and became depressed. Liability for the accident was admitted by the Defenders and they made an offer of £15,000 to settle his claim. Digby Brown advised Mr R. to reject this offer and after raising court proceedings Mr R. secured a settlement of £30,000.
