Siobhan McIvor, Partner in the Personal InjuryDepartment at Osbornes Solicitors recently settled a claim after a pedestrian was deliberately knocked over by an uninsured driver.
Our client sustained a number of serious injuries, including brain/psychological injuries and various bodily fractures. As he resided in Hungary arrangements were made for him to attend the necessary appointments to obtain medico-legal reports in support of his claim and the effects of the injuries.
As the driver was uninsured, the claim went through The Motor Insurers Bureau, whose first offer of £250,000 was rejected by our client. Further negotiations by Osbornes resulted the claim settled in the sum of £300,000 without the need for stressful court proceedings.
The driver also received a prison sentence for the vicious assault perpetrated on the Claimant.
