Tragedy struck in Portsmouth in the early morning of October 2016 when our client’s husband was knocked from his motorcycle suffering multiple injuries as a result of this motorcycle accident. The Defendant pulled out of a side road into our client’s husband’s path causing the collision. He sadly died at the scene. ThetDefendant, who was acting in the course of his employment at the time, was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and his insurers never disputed liability. Our team of experienced lawyers brought a dependency claim on behalf of his wife and widow. Although challenging circumstances because of our client’s loss, our personal injury specialists were able to progress the matter promptly and with compassion. Court proceedings became necessary as a valuation could not be initially agreed. Eventually a settlement of £170,000 was reached before the matter went to Trial.
