Osbornes help man receive £300,000 in compensation after a hit-and-run leave him with serious injuries

25 Sep 2020 | Siobhan McIvor

Siobhan McIvor, Partner in the Personal Injury Department 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.
