Widow receives road accident compensation after fatal road accident

Our specialist road accident compensation lawyers represented this client following the death of her husband due to injuries suffered in a road accident. We were forced to issue court proceedings when the defendant's insurers refused to negotiate a fair settlement for our client.

Through strong negotiation, and prior to the trial date, we were able to secure a substantial six-figure sum for our client. Although no financial sum can compensate for the loss of her partner of several decades, she will at least have the peace of mind that she will be financially secure.

Road accident at traffic junction

A professional driver, known for his care and attention when driving, the deceased had been close to retiring when the fatal road accident happened. He was driving through a traffic light controlled junction, when a large vehicle approached from the opposite direction. The driver of the other vehicle failed to stop to allow the deceased to pass and instead turned right immediately into the path of oncoming traffic, leaving the deceased no chance to avoid the collision which would cost him his life.

Road traffic accident injuries

Our client's husband was taken to hospital where he was admitted to the High Dependency Unit (or ICU). He had suffered serious injuries which included broken ribs, facial injuries and serious internal injuries. These sadly resulted in his death a few days after the accident.

Our client and her husband had been married for more than 40 years and were looking forward to their retirement. They had many plans to travel and spend time with their grandchildren, but for her, retirement will now take a very different course.
