Herman Awarded £3,000 After Being Hit by Car

Herman was out and about and approached a street he had to cross. As it was a one-way street, he looked in the direction he expected vehicles to be travelling from. There were no cars approaching so he decided to cross.

However, he hadn’t seen a car that was coming from the wrong way. The driver couldn’t stop in time and hit Herman, knocking him down.

Apart from being a terrible shock, the accident caused Herman to suffer a number of injuries. His knee required surgery. As if that wasn’t enough to deal with, the accident also caused Herman to suffer whiplash and lower back pain.

During his recovery, Herman was watching television when he saw one of our adverts and decided to give us a call to find out whether he was able to get any justice for what had happened to him.

When we spoke to him, we were able to establish that he had a strong claim for compensation. We put him in touch with a solicitor who specialises in road traffic accident claims. Herman’s solicitor was able to secure him the justice he was looking for, in the form of £3,000 in compensation.

Asked about his dealings with First4Lawyers, Herman said: “I felt that my claim experience with First4Lawyers went very well. I was pleased with the outcome and it didn’t take long for my claim to finalise.

“I found them friendly and helpful, and I will definitely be recommending First4Lawyers to friends and family.”
