Man left with leg injuries after being hit by car on pedestrian crossing in Belgium is awarded five-figure settlement.
Slater and Gordon Lawyer: Simon Weilding is a travel litigation lawyer at Slater and Gordon in Manchester.
What Happened: Our client was working abroad in Belgium. Whilst on his employer’s property he was crossing the road on a pedestrian crossing when he was hit by a car.
Impact: Our client suffered injuries to his ankle and leg, and psychological symptoms as a result of the accident. He made a full recovery after physiotherapy but was left with some scarring.
How Slater and Gordon Helped: Although Belgian law applied, our experts in international law were able to bring a claim against the Belgian insurer of the vehicle involved. We issued court proceedings, but soon after managed to successfully negotiate a settlement which the client was more than happy with.
Decision: Settlement of £5,200 was agreed for injuries suffered and expenses incurred.
