When you're a passenger in your friend's car, you never expect to be involved in a road traffic collision and left with life changing injuries.
18 May 2015
James* was a front seat passenger in his friend's car when suddenly the friend lost control of the vehicle which caused it to spin and roll several times before landing on a verge at the side of the road.
Both James and his friend were taken to hospital for treatment. James sustained severe injuries including fractures to his spine, tibia and ankle.
James' injuries recovered to a point but he’s been left with permanent bladder and bowel problems. He also experiences difficulty when walking and sufferers from psychological injuries including flashbacks of the accident.
James contacted Slater and Gordon and our specialist personal injury lawyers were able to secure compensation for him for the pain and discomfort he’s suffered.
The compensation amount was in excess of £2 million which will allow James to continue to receive the treatment and rehabilitation he needs to aid his recovery and regain some of his independence with specialist equipment and care support.
