Personal injury solicitors help client to reach five-figure settlement
The 48-year old former hod-carrier was a front seat passenger when the driver lost control of the car and collided with a number of stationary vehicles. Fentons helped him to reach an out of court settlement of £248,000 in compensation.
Anya Rupal, a serious injuries solicitor at Fentons, said: “My client suffered a head injury which knocked him unconscious. He experienced post-traumatic and pre-traumatic amnesia and cannot remember anything about the incident itself. Paramedics who resuscitated him at the scene had to insert chest drains to alleviate swelling to the lining of his lungs - both of which had totally collapsed - to enable him to breathe.
“He was taken by air ambulance to the Royal London Hospital with seven right and left rib fractures as well as a flail chest - a life-threatening condition commonly seen in cases of significant blunt trauma where a segment of the rib cage breaks under extreme stress and becomes detached from the chest wall,” added Rupal.
However, these were not the full extent of the injuries. The unnamed father-of-two suffered fractures and significant soft tissue injuries to his spine, severe chest wall trauma with fractured vertebrae, lacerations to his liver and trauma haemorrhaging around the linking of his heart.
Rupal confirmed that her client required considerable care and assistance with everyday tasks, resulting in him needing to move in with his daughter. Even 10 months on from the incident, he has been suffering with considerable pain and discomfort.
She admitted that her client was lucky to be alive following his personal injuries, and that his life has been changed irreparably. She said: “My client has lost his former livelihood and is now permanently unable to perform any kind of physically arduous work.
“His options in regard to more sedentary employment are similarly limited as he is unable to remain seated for any length of time. As he continues to receive treatment for his pain and will require various and repeated spinal treatments over the course of his life, it is hoped the settlement he has now received will help as he adjusts to his radically altered life and looks to the future.”
