We acted for a 12-year-old girl who was involved in a serious road traffic accident when she was hit by a car whilst crossing the road at a zebra crossing. She sustained head injuries and initially, it was thought she had made a full recovery. She was initially represented by another firm of lawyers and had been offered around £15,000 for her case. We were instructed after the court refused to approve the award. Further evidence was obtained to support her claim. Ultimately, the case was settled for over £300,000, 20 times the initial sum offered.
