Helen was a University student at the time of her accident in 2016. She was walking on the pavement when, suddenly and without warning, the wing mirror of a bus collided into the back of her head.
She was taken to hospital.
Helen was left unconscious because of the collision. The accident had an impact on not only her studies, but she also sustained psychological injuries, which are often associated with head injuries.
Helen instructed Livingstone Brown to deal with her claim. The insurance company for the bus company initially failed to accept liability for the accident. After detailed investigations, we were able to establish that the bus was at fault for the accident. In terms of her injuries, it was imperative for Helen to be examined by our medical experts and treatment to be provided.
Helen made a full recovery within 18 months. She received a five-figure sum of compensation and payment for her treatment costs.
