Four figure sum for Romanian mother injured by reckless driver

Unhappy child looking over mum's shoulder

Romanian solicitor at Digby Brown helps mother Mioara Taylor after a driver’s careless act causes her harm.

“After the accident, all I could think was that I’m glad to be alive and have my family. The accident was so unexpected and made me realise that your life could be taken from you in a second due to someone else’s carelessness.”

It was just a normal day for Mrs Taylor who was dropping her son off at school. As she went to take something out of her boot, her son screamed at her, ‘Mummy!’ and she knew something was wrong.

“It was instinctive; I could hear the alarm in his voice, so I took a step to the left.

“Everything happened very fast.  As soon as I moved, I felt the impact; the other vehicle scraped my jacket. I got scared and jumped to the pavement, landing on my back.

“If he hadn’t shouted and I hadn’t moved in time… I was very lucky.”

The other driver had been speeding and hit the corner of her car and spun multiple times before stopping in the middle of the road.

The emotional impact on both mother and son was considerable. Her 10-year-old felt guilty because he had called her back to get money for the day. If he hadn’t, he believed she wouldn’t have been in danger.

“Even two years later, I feel it has knocked my son’s confidence. He’s always wary when we’re walking and worried something will happen to me. He doesn’t want to walk on his own.”

After hearing about Digby Brown on the radio and a friend recommending the firm, Mrs Taylor decided to get in touch.

“It was a very good surprise being passed to a Romanian solicitor. I was able to explain everything in my own words. I was very impressed that Digby Brown had international solicitors for people like myself to deal with. It made a big difference.”

With the help of Constantin Bedrule, specialist Romanian Solicitor in our Foreign and Travel team, Mrs Taylor received the settlement she was entitled to.

“There was a point I was close to dropping the case as it was a really bad time in my life.

“But now I’m glad I went ahead, it was the right thing to do. It is not fair for drivers to be careless and fail to pay attention as the damage they cause leaves a mark on other people’s lives. And it is completely avoidable.

“It helped that Digby Brown made the whole legal process as easy as possible. I knew I had good people to advise me at every step of the way --so I didn’t need to worry about the legal side, I could focus on my personal life as they took care of everything for me.”
