Case Study: Winns Secures £1m Settlement for Seriously Injured Client

When crossing the road, you should feel safe that the traffic on the road should obey the roles of the highway.

But what about when that doesn’t happen? Who do you turn to? Who can help you rebuild a life following a non-fault accident?

One of our clients turned to us in their time of need, with senior solicitor Claire Farrell helping them get £1-million compensation to aid the transition to a future altered by serious injury.

What happened?

The client was crossing the road when they were struck by the defendant’s car and thrown into the path of an oncoming lorry.

The road traffic accident left the injured party with catastrophic, life-changing injuries, including amputation of the lower leg.

How did our expert team of advisors support them?

Led by Claire, our response was to focus on an effective recovery timetable and to help our client adjust as best they could to an altered future. To achieve this:

  • We set up a bespoke specialist rehabilitation package to facilitate the best possible opportunity for recovery
  • Our team provided support in buying accommodation more suitable, with adaptations to meet the client’s post-accident needs
  • Funds were secured to purchase bespoke prosthetics
  • Damages were pursued successfully so all of the client’s care needs could be met for the rest of their life
  • Arranged for financial advice in relation to a Personal Injury Trust and preparation of a Will.

The outcome

When reflecting on the claim, our client was delighted with the outcome and ongoing support received from our team of legal experts.

They said: “I cannot thank Winn Solicitors, and specifically Claire Farrell, enough for everything that she has done to help and assist me throughout my claim. 

“Claire has always had my wellbeing at the forefront of her focus, always been available to me whenever needed, and always kept me fully updated with developments.  

“Having Claire by my side representing me with my claim has, without a doubt, made the whole process easier. 

“I’d recommend Winn Solicitors to anyone as they made me feel like they listened and cared.”

Senior Solicitor, Claire Farrell said: “Our client, throughout this dreadful ordeal, has demonstrated immense determination, strength of character, and courage.

“This accident arose through no fault of their own and its impact has been life-changing for them and their family.

“By negotiating a £1 million settlement for our client, this will allow them to access lifelong provision for prosthetics, bespoke equipment, medical treatments and therapies, in addition to providing financial security for the future.”
