When a child was knocked down by a car, Bartletts personal injury solicitors in Wrexham were able to help her parents claim compensation for personal injury on her behalf.
The seven-year-old girl was walking with her parents when she ran in between cars onto a busy road. She was knocked over by the impact of a car, seriously injuring her leg. The little girl, who was in a lot of pain and very distressed, was rushed to the accident and emergency department at her local hospital where she was taken for an x-ray.
The girl and her parents were told she had broken her leg and it would require a plaster cast. For several months after the accident, the young girl needed constant care and assistance from her parents as her leg recovered. As well as the difficulty of getting around on crutches, the girl also suffered physiological trauma after the accident.
When accidents such as this happen to children so young, it can be difficult to tell the long-term impact of their injuries, so it is always a good idea to get legal advice.
In this case, the young girl’s parents came to see Bartletts Solicitors and our expert personal injury lawyers for advice on making a claim. Although liability on cases such as these can be difficult to prove, our team successfully pursued the driver and his insurance company. We then negotiated compensation for personal injuries on behalf of the seven-year-old, to cover pain and suffering, care and assistance costs, and pay for treatment for her psychological symptoms.
Bartletts Solicitors swiftly worked to help the little girl get the compensation she deserved after going through such an ordeal.
The settlement was approved by a judge and the money invested for the child, earning interest, until she is 18 years of age.
