Our client was riding his bicycle when a car collided with him. He was taken by ambulance to the major trauma centre for the south east where he was diagnosed with extensive orthopaedic injuries, including a fractured vertebra and fractured pelvis. He remained in a spinal brace for over 4 months and was fully dependent for his care needs.
Our client was the main earner for the family, with his wife being the main carer for their disabled daughter, who has cerebral palsy. We are working with the insurers who have funded, under the Rehabilitation Code, the cost of ongoing case management, physiotherapy, psychology, a taxi account for our client’s sons to enable them to continue to attend their clubs, maintenance/handyman support for the home and a care package for their disabled daughter. We have also secured interim payments of in excess of £15,000 to date, to help with the financial strains of the family. Our client is due to commence a staggered return to work shortly.
