Consultant Killed in Road Traffic Accident – Significant Settlement

Aug 30, 2016

The client was a respected and esteemed Consultant who was a pedestrian killed in a road traffic accident. Sadly the claimant was fatally injured and died after eight weeks in a coma.

A claim was successful in recovering compensation for:

  • His loss of amenity
  • Bereavement award for his widow
  • Dependency claim for his widow based on his loss of earning

The claimant was in his seventies and continued to work full time as a Consultant. Although the driver's insurers' solicitors argued he was beyond normal retiring age, it was successfully proven that his income was likely to have continued for a further four years. Given his contract of employment and consultancy work, this resulted in significant settlement.
