Elizabeth - Motorcycle accident claims

Case Study – Elizabeth -  Motorcycle accident claims

Elizabeth was the pillion on a motorcycle when she was injured in a motorcycle accident claim accident.  Elizabeth was 22 years old when she was in the accident.  She suffered a severe head injury causing problems with vision, speech and hearing and an increased risk of epilepsy. As a result of the accident Elizabeth experienced a significant personality change, with her family noticing she was more short tempered.   Head Injury UK expert solicitors took care of arranging Elizabeth private medical treatment and counselling to help her obtain maximum recovery from her brain injury.

In addition to her brain injury, Elizabeth also suffered a fractured pelvis and collarbone and required reconstructive surgery on her knee.  After the accident Elizabeth  was reliant on using a wheel chair and walking aids to mobilise.   As part of her compensation her Head Injury UK solicitor recovered the cost of a new vehicle, adaptations to Elizabeth’s home and a full care package to ensure she is looked after now and in the future.

The court approved a settlement for Elizabeth  of £1,200,000.00

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
