Case study – £20,000 compensation for child knocked down

HHD solicitor: Fiona Sterritt, partner,  specialising in personal injury claims

Settlement: £20,000

What happened: 13 year old boy crossing the road was knocked down by an oncoming car

How HHD solicitors helped: Although the police decided not to prosecute the car driver we were able to pursue a claim against the driver on behalf of the teenager regarding the injuries he sustained. Thankfully, he recovered well in a short space of time and his £20,000 compensation was approved by the judge at court and is lodged in court funds until he reaches 18 years old.
