Child head injury accident example
Child head injury, school bus, headaches, blurred vision £3,900
The bus driver of a school bus braked heavily at traffic lights, which had turned red. The bus driver was sued by the child’s head injury solicitors. The child was 12 years old at the time of the accident and claimed compensation.
As a result of the bus driver’s actions the child was thrown forward and struck his head on the metal bar immediately in front of the child. The school child suffered from a head injury causing headaches, dizzy spells, whiplash pain and psychological trauma.
The child was unconscious for about 5 minutes. The dizzy spells settled within 3 months, headaches within 4 weeks but travel anxiety for a period of 12 months. The whiplash neck pain recovered by the 9 months following the personal injury.
The no win no fee head injury solicitors acting for the child injury claim via the child’s litigation friend and mother recovered the sum of £3900 for the head injury and associated injuries.
Note: The head injury solicitors recovered the compensation claim against the solicitors acting for the bus driver’s insurance company. On a no win no fee claim by the solicitors, the child recovered the compensation payment in full. The head injury and whiplash claim solicitor’s recovered legal costs from the bus insurer in full. In summary, the child did not pay anything to the instructing solicitors and received the compensation payment in full without any deduction.
