The individual was crossing the road when the driver failed to stop or spot them, sending the pedestrian careering forward before the vehicle accidentally ran over the person again as the driver attempted to stop.

Winn Solicitors acted for the claimant and helped to co-oridnate their medical treatment. The client spent approximately six months in hospital after suffering a number of injuries.

A physiotherapist, neuropsychologist and support workers were all arranged. Due to the severity of the brain injury sustained, a Court of Protection Deputy was also brought in to help the client manage their property and financial affairs.

Solicitor David Burn said: “Once the requirements of our client were established, we set about providing everything needed to boost their recovery.

“People often don’t realise the amount of support seriously injuried clients may need, depending on circumstances, with a range of different services often required at varying stages of the recovery process.

“We were pleased to arrange settlement of over £4m for our client, which will allow them to make suitable adjustments for a life affected by serious injury, including the provision for ongoing future case management and treatment.”
