Fatal Road Traffic Accident
MD recently represented a widow whose husband was killed in a road traffic accident and she was awarded over £200,000.00 compensation for her loss. Her husband was driving an articulated lorry on a motorway, making a scheduled delivery to Scunthorpe.
Polish Worker’s Fatal Accident
MD was instructed to represent the interests of the family of a Polish mechanic who was working in Staffordshire and was killed in a road traffic accident when the Astra van in which he was a passenger was struck by the steps to the driver’s cab of a lorry that crossed the path of the Astra van. The lorry cab steps came into the van on the van’s passenger side, hitting the Polish mechanic, snapping his seat and killing him instantly.
Hit and Run
MD acted for a young Welsh amateur rugby player who was hit by a “hit and run” car when walking back from a night out with his friends. MD’s client sustained unsightly scarring to his back when struck by the car, but fortunately due to his fitness from playing rugby made a speedy and full recovery from his back injury sustained in the collision.
Fall from a Height
MD received instructions following a recommendation, to act for a gardener and labourer who was injured when he fell over 10 feet from a scaffold onto his head and neck onto a stone floor , when working on a barn conversion for a former soap opera star in Cheshire.
MD acted for a self-employed carpenter who was working on the construction of the new Manchester Civil Justice Centre. MDs client was injured when his hand was cut when using his own circular saw. The case was difficult in that MD client was self-employed and responsible for his own system of work.
