Pedestrian hit whilst crossing the road is awarded damages of over £30,000.00

Our client was a pedestrian crossing a road in Brighton. Our client was using a crossing point which had a central island and bollard in the middle of the road. Our client looked to her right to check for traffic and as the road was clear she proceeded to cross the road. Whilst doing this we are advised that you drove at speed down the same road  and collided with our client.

Our Client’s Injuries:

In fact proceedings were issued but the matter was settled thanks to some high level negotiation from our expert.
