Posted on August 27, 2019 by SheldonDavidsonSolicitors



SDS 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.

The driver who caused the fatal accident was travelling in a 4 x 4 car began to overtake the lorry and in doing so struck the lorry in the area of its fuel tank, causing the lorry to plunge down the embankment and collide with motorway signage. The client’s husband was killed instantly.

Despite the fact the client’s husband was close to retirement age, a negotiated settlement of over £200,000.00 was achieved for his widow after this tragic incident, on the basis SDS obtained evidence that he was a model employee and as such would have worked beyond retirement age.
