Pedestrian Receives Compensation After Being Seriously Injured In Road Accident

A pedestrian has received almost £35,000 compensation after being knocked down by a car and left with multiple injuries.

Brian Thompson, a pensioner, was walking along Spring Bank West, Hull, when he was struck by the vehicle near the junction with Patterdale Road.

He was hit by the wing of the vehicle which caused him to fall onto the road and was rushed to Hull Royal Infirmary where he was treated for serious injuries before being allowed back home three weeks later.

Now, nine months after the accident, he still suffers considerable pain and struggles with restricted movement in both arms.

He explains: “I remember the day of the accident extremely well. I was walking along Spring Bank West on my way to the shops. This is a route I walked daily so I was used to having to cross the busy dual carriageway.

“As I reached the junction with Patterdale Road, I stopped to check the traffic. I looked to my right and there was nothing in sight at all, not even a bike or any pedestrians, so I realised it was safe to cross.”

He continues: “As I was almost across the road of the intersection, a car came out of Patterdale Road, driving straight onto the intersection and headed straight for me. I realised it was going to hit me and I tried to get out of the way, but the wing of the car hit me and caused me to fall heavily onto the road.”

The impact of the collision caused numerous serious injuries including a fractured right wrist, fractured left arm, injuries to his left foot and left knee, six broken ribs and considerable bruising across his body.

Having consulted Personal Injury specialists Neil Hudgell Solicitors, Mr Thompson has now received almost £35,000 to compensate him for the pain and suffering he endured.

He concludes: “I had to spend three weeks in hospital after the accident and then go back for regular treatment. It hasn’t affected my work as I’m retired, but there’s definitely an impact on what I can do. I struggle quite a lot of the time as I’ve got restricted movement in my arms, and I’m certainly a lot less active than I used to be.”

Jane Woodcock, senior Legal Executive, who handled Mr Thompson’s case, comments: “This was a particularly nasty accident for our client who was walking a route near his home which he’d used many times before and ended up in hospital with multiple serious injuries. We hope the settlement we’ve secured will go some way towards compensating him for what he’s been through and the residual problems he will have.”
