£100,000 Compensation Awarded after Fatal Road Traffic Accident

18 July 2012

Personal Injury Solicitor Matthew Tomlinson acted in this fatal road traffic accident case. 

A 79 year old man was killed when he stood at the side of the road waiting to cross by a vehicle which mounted the kerb, whilst out of control.

He was the primary carer for his wife who suffered with Dementia.

Matthew was instructed to the case and there were a number of issues that needed to be considered in respect of life expectancy but for the accident, and how long he could have continued to cope whilst caring for his wife but for accident.

Matthew negotiated fatal accident compensation of £100,000 to be paid for damages.
