Client wins a substantial sum after road traffic accident left him unable to work

Moore Blatch helped a gas and plumbing engineer to achieve substantial compensation after he sustained a significant head injury, when a lorry collided with the rear of his van.

After the collision caused him to hit his head, the client experienced post-concussion syndrome, causing significant cognitive impairment and preventing him from returning to work. Symptoms of the condition include impaired memory and speech, while the injured person also loses the ability to perform simple everyday tasks.

Unfortunately, a pre-existing psychological vulnerability meant that these symptoms persisted for longer than usual causing chronic effects. This condition, combined with significant soft tissue injuries resulted in a significant loss of earnings.

He contacted Moore Blatch head injury solicitors to claim car accident compensation, and we quickly secured a full admission of liability from the Defendant.

Medical expertise

The situation was originally complicated by the fact that the client suffered from diabetes, which could have lead the Court to rule that this was causing some of his symptoms rather than the accident.

Our solicitors had the specialist knowledge and expertise to obtain expert evidence to support the claim, from leading medical experts including a Consultant Neurologist, a Consultant Neuropsychologist, a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and a Care Expert (Occupational Therapist).

If you have been sustained a brain injury in a road traffic accident which wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to brain injury compensation and our expert team could help you to get the right result.
