Pedestrian knocked over by car - claim settles for £50,000

Our client, Georgina, was a pedestrian crossing a junction, when suddenly the driver of an Audi A1, reversed from its parked position and knocked her to the ground.

Georgina sustained a fractured hip, which required surgery and also suffered from psychological injury, including depressive episodes and considerable loss in confidence.

The driver's insurers were contacted and legal liability was admitted. Following evidence and negotiations, our client accepted a settlement of £50,000 for her injuries and special damages, including loss of earnings as a result of the collision.
