Six-Figure Settlement For Victim of Reckless Racing Drivers

30 June 2017

A pedestrian run over by racing cars received a six-figure settlement for serious head injuries that made it difficult to run his business.

Slater and Gordon Lawyer: Steve Hill is a personal injury lawyer at Slater and Gordon in Manchester.

Settlement: £122,500.

What Happened: Our client was run over when two cars that were racing each other lost control.

Impact: Our client sustained a brain injury and serious orthopaedic injuries, which meant he required help in order to run his business. 

How Slater and Gordon Helped: We obtained evidence from orthopaedic and neurological experts to give opinions on the extent of the injuries. We also analysed our client’s business accounts to find evidence of his losses. The defendant made an early smaller offer of settlement, which we persuaded them to increase.

Decision: A sum of £122,500.
