Angela Menzies suffered life-changing injuries in a car crash back in 2016.
A head-on collision in the early hours of a summer morning in 2016 caused Angela to break almost every bone in her body – including her legs, knees, hips and wrists. They were injuries which left her facing a long, difficult and uncertain road to recovery. She was in a coma for a month and spent four months in hospital.
There was certainly no guarantee of ever walking again.
Today however, less than three years on and thanks to a complete package of support provided through her personal injury compensation claim, she is a woman enjoying independence again. Angela, 59, has been supported since her accident by specialist catastrophic injury claims specialist Samuel McFadyen.
Angela’s recovery was made the priority at all times, with a complete support package secured to cover rehabilitation costs and provide an extensive package of physical, psychological and financial support.
In the initial days psychological support focused on coping strategies to manage Angela’s low mood and anxiety levels, whilst occupational therapy aimed to help her become more independent and less reliant on family supervision.
As part of the ongoing claim, a substantial interim payment was agreed which has enabled Angela and her husband to purchase a bungalow.
“When Sam contacted me and said that Aviva were agreeable to an interim payment which would give me the funds to purchase a bungalow I was blown away. I had to pass the phone over to my husband as I thought I was going mad,” she said.
‘’It has given me total independence. I can walk through every room using the walls for support and then use the worktops in the kitchen to lean on’’
“It has transformed how I have lived since the accident. It is all about being able to do more for myself.
“I can’t thank Sam and Hudgell Solicitors enough. I see so many people in hospital who have suffered similar serious injuries and they have had nowhere near the same level of support and help I have had through Hudgells. I tell them they have the wrong solicitor. Sam’s support has been tremendous.”
“Angela still has some major hurdles ahead but there is nobody more aware of that, and nobody more determined to overcome them than Angela herself. We will certainly be by her side as she continues on her journey to recovery.”
