Civil case successful after driver escapes criminal conviction

Police Car

Ms Y. was involved in a horrific road traffic collision. The other driver came through a contra-flow system into the oncoming traffic causing a head on collision.

Ms Y. was severely injured, and tragically killing two other members of her family.

Liability was denied after the driver escaped conviction on a not proven verdict.

The driver's solicitors attempted to railroad proceedings by altering their case at the 11th hour. We prevented them from doing this and successfully settled her claim for injury for £175,000.

We later went onto successfully conclude a separate case for her and other family members relating to the death of the family members.
