£118,000 in Pre-Medical Settlement After Road Traffic Accident

17 November 2015

A Serbian national seriously injured in a road crash in the UK has received substantial compensation allowing him to return home to care for family and receive essential medical treatment.

Slater and Gordon Fee Earner: Rob Jones is a Personal Injury Lawyer at Slater and Gordon in Derby

Settlement Value: £118,676

What Happened: Our client was involved in a road traffic accident, sustaining serious leg injuries.

How Slater and Gordon Helped: Our client was a Serbian national whose elderly parents still lived in Serbia. His father had recently died and his mother was seriously ill. The rest of his family also lived in Serbia.

We were instructed to negotiate a pre-medical settlement to enable our client to return to Serbia to live with – and care for – his mother, and also to seek relevant medical treatment for his injuries.

The insurance company initially offered £70,000 but we were able to negotiate this upwards.

Decision: We settled the claim in favour of our client for £118,676.
