Rapid Solicitors wins £350,000 for brain-damaged father

Michael Davies was crossing the road when he was struck by a motorist who unexpectedly swerved across the road towards him. The collision threw him 60 feet, where he landed on his head. Michael sustained serious head injuries and extensive damage to his brain as a result. Michael lost his sight temporarily, his sense of taste, smell and balance and suffered serious memory loss. He was left unable to remember his children or the fact that his parents divorced when he was a child. A family member said: “Michael had several skull fractures, broken ribs and a broken jaw and lost hearing in one ear. He lost a lot of his memory. Luckily, he remembered his fiancée and she has taken good care of him. He was housebound for 6 months. I think the driver was blinded by sunlight and thought something was coming towards him, so he swerved but hit Michael”.

A Solicitor at Rapid said, “Surprisingly, the Defendant denied liability and alleged negligence on our Client’s part, so we fought Mr Davies’ case in court and proved he was not at fault at all. We commissioned a specialist engineer who prepared a reconstruction of the likely scenario of the accident. He examined the scene, weather reports and the Defendant’s car and proved the Defendant was wholly liable.” “The next step was to fight for our Client’s rightful amount of compensation for his injuries. As a father of three, building a new business, the injuries and consequences were devastating to him and his family. We commissioned a report from an expert neurologist, who examined Mr Davies. He ascertained such factors as his loss of certain brain functions, the psychological changes to his personality and mood, his risk of developing epilepsy following the head trauma and the impact on his ability to conduct future work or develop his own business. It was a superb win for our Client.”
