Our client was knocked down by a car when he was crossing a road. The driver of the car was turning from a side road into a main road when the accident happened. Our client sustained significant leg injuries and had to undergo surgery on three occasions. Previous solicitors had rejected the case as they believed prospects of success were below 50% due to the Defendants arguing that the client had ran into the road without checking the dangers. Despite this, Freeclaim Solicitors took over the compensation claim and argued that the driver had a higher degree of care in this matter to ensure the road was clear as the accident occurred near a school. Our solicitors were successful and our client received £38,000 damages.
