£11,000 in compensation for suffering serious injuries in a car accident

Nick Allen from Stoke-on-Trent, launched a claim for compensation after suffering serious injuries in a car accident.

The 23-year-old was a passenger in a friend’s car when the driver hit the curb and lost control, causing the vehicle to flip over, before colliding with a lamppost.

Nick was knocked out in the accident, in March 2003, and suffered a head injury, a broken leg, several broken fingers and cuts and bruises to his face, arms and legs.

The driver, who had been drinking, did not have a current driving license or insurance.

Thanks to TJL Solicitors Nick, who could not work for several months following the crash, was awarded £11,000 compensation for his pain and suffering and loss of earnings.
