A police officer who was knocked down by a car whilst on duty was awarded four-figure compensation for her injuries.

Slater and Gordon Lawyer: Rachel Coulson is a chartered legal executive and personal injury lawyer at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Sheffield.

Settlement: Four-figure settlement

What Happened: Our client was a police officer who was directing traffic when a vehicle failed to stop and hit her, knocking her to the ground. 

Impact: Our client sustained soft tissue injuries and a laceration to her face that required stitches. She had to take time off work to recover and has been left with permanent scarring.  

How Slater and Gordon Helped: We brought a personal injury claim on behalf of the client and were able to negotiate a four-figure settlement that compensated her accordingly for losses suffered.

Decision: Four-figure settlement
