Paralysed man seeking personal injury compensation

Paralysed man seeking personal injury compensation

A road traffic accident that left a man paralysed has resulted in him seeking personal injury compensation for his ordeal.

According to the Waltham Forest Guardian, Adam Smith has launched legal action seeking damages after sustaining a life-changing back injury during an incident in which a car he was a passenger in hit a brick wall in August 2010.

The 24-year-old's best friend and driver of the vehicle Joe Slater died from his injuries, while Mr Smith was left paralysed from the neck down.

However, he is now pursuing a claim for compensation from his companion's insurance firm Sabre - a company established in Surrey in 1992 that acts through intermediaries - on the grounds that his negligence caused him his permanent health problems.

Following the crash, Mr Smith had to undergo surgery on his spine and spent a total of three months at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital before doctors allowed him to return home.
