Compensation for elderly woman in car accident after driver fled the scene

Older woman walking in Scotland

An elderly lady was involved in a road traffic accident when she was a passenger in a friend’s car. The other driver fled the scene.

She came to Digby Brown for help with making a claim for compensation for her injuries. As the other driver fled the scene, our personal injury solicitors had to make the claim to Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).

The MIB is an organisation which is set up in order to deal with claims for people who have been involved in accidents with untraced or uninsured drivers.

Digby Brown’s personal injury solicitors in Aberdeen collected expert medical evidence to establish the injuries caused by the accident. In the end, four medical reports were collected to ensure the assessment of the accident injuries were accurate.

We also arranged physiotherapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help our client heal and move on from the accident.

As her appointments required her to travel by train, and she was unable to manage the stairs at the train station, we were able to secure travel expenses so she could travel by taxi.

The case settled for £6,000 in compensation which was far more than what was expected.
