Multiple Injuries in a Car Accident in Manchester

Posted on August 27, 2019 by SheldonDavidsonSolicitors



Victoria Martin represented Mark, a retired sales manager who received £65,000 compensation after a serious accident left him with multiple injuries.

He says he would recommend Sheldon Davidson Solicitors. ‘They did their job professionally and properly,’ he says.

Mark was on his way home after an evening out with his wife when the accident happened. His car was in a collision with another car at a crossroads. The accident left him with a broken sternum, broken collar bone, two broken ribs, two bones broken at the bottom of his back and extensive bruising. It was six weeks later that he realised his hip was also damaged. Mark, who was 79 when the accident happened, was in hospital for ten days.

He had a visit from Victoria Martin, who specialises in serious injury at Sheldon Davidson Solicitors, not long after he came out of hospital.

‘Victoria was approachable,’ he says. ‘The best thing is that you can just leave it to Sheldon Davidson Solicitors and trust that they are going to do whatever is right and necessary for you.’

The rehabilitation code was invoked with the opponent and Mark received extensive physiotherapy as part of his programme to help re-build his strength and stamina to ensure he remained mobile. As a keen golfer, the expertise of a professional golf coach was utilised in assisting the adaptation of his technique. Mark successfully won a local amateur golf tournament in July 2017.

Liability was not disputed by the third party and the case was settled out of court. Sheldon Davidson Solicitors ensured that Mark received the compensation he deserved.

Mark, a grandfather, says the accident made his life a misery. He likes being outdoors and enjoyed gardening for his daughter but can’t do that anymore. He can’t clean his car because he can’t bend down comfortably on his right side. He has a window cleaner instead of cleaning his own windows like he used to before.
His wife Lin, a retired teacher, was more seriously injured in the accident.
Mark says he was satisfied with the amount of compensation he received in the sum of £65,000.00. ‘I don’t think there is anything else that Sheldon Davidson Solicitors could have done,’ he says. ‘Victoria was very good.’

Currently Sheldon Davidson Solicitors continue to seek compensation for my wife Lin.
