Future wage loss for driver after injury in accident in Girvan

Police Car with lights on

A lady driver, Mrs A. in her late 50's, was driving along the Girvan to Newton Stewart Road when the road traffic accident happened. Her 2 year old grandson was a back seat passenger at the time.

A young male driver was approaching from the other side of the carriageway, when he attempted to overtake a lorry and hit our client head on.

She suffered a fractured sternum, broken ribs, and ankle. Her grandson suffered a leg fracture which luckily mended well.

Fault of the car accident was not disputed however the level of compensation due to the client was. 

As Mrs A was approaching 60 and there was an entry in her GP records saying that she probably would work for a year after her 60th birthday, the level of her future wage loss was disputed.

Digby Brown's road traffic accident solicitors managed to get supportive statements from her work colleagues and settled her car accident claim for double the original offer from the third party insurers. 

The personal injury claim settled at £100,000.
