Case Study – £6,000 compensation for RTA in England

HHD solicitor: Katrina Lagan, Solicitor, specialising in personal injury claims

Settlement: £6,000

What happened: Our client, a HGV driver, was working in England when a third party driver from Scotland collided with his lorry.

How HHD solicitors helped: Despite the multi-national nature of the accident and the insistence of the insurance company to deal with the claim under English law, HHD Solicitors successfully prosecuted the claim in Northern Ireland where our client resides and where compensation rates are higher. Liability was admitted and our client was medically examined. He was given a total recovery time of 18 months for his injuries and the matter subsequently settled for £6,000 damages.

Our client was delighted to receive the compensation due so promptly after pursuing the claim. If you have had a road traffic accident that has caused you an injury you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.  To find out more about how our specialist personal injury lawyers could help you, please email on
