John*, a cyclist, suffered a life-changing accident when a driver in a van collided with his, resulting in multiple injuries, including a fractured vertebra, annular tear, volar plate avulsion, and injury to the left eye with blurred vision, among others.
After the accident, John contacted Truth Legal, where he was connected with Helen Beaumont, a Senior Personal Injury Solicitor. Helen gathered evidence, such as medical reports and photographs of the injuries and damages items and established that the driver of the van was responsible for the accident.
With Helen’s help, John was able to receive compensation for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused by his injuries. He also received compensation for other damages resulting from his injury, such as loss of earnings and the care and assistance of his partner. John’s partner had to take over full-time care of their son as well as perform the tasks that John would normally do, such as domestic activities, and cooking and gardening. Additionally, John was unable to drive while wearing a brace, so his partner assisted with transport, which was all included in the compensation.
Since John was absent from work for 2 weeks, he received compensation for those 2 weeks of work.
John also suffered from broken teeth, he therefore received lots of dental treatment which was very costly. Helen was able to get John compensation for these treatments along with compensation for physiotherapy and psychological treatment, and other medications John had paid for along the way.
John also received compensation for the items that were damages in the accident, such as his bicycle.
Thanks to the efforts of Helen’s and the team at Truth Legal, John received over £50,000 in compensation. This success story serves as a testament to the importance of seeking legal help after a life-changing accident.
