£3,376 Awarded After Car Hit Stationary Vehicle

A client of Hampson Hughes Solicitors, Ms Neufeld, suffered injuries to her neck and back after the defendant reversed into her stationary car on High Street in Cheadle.

The claimant’s injuries lasted for a period of two months after the accident. As a result the third party insurer offered £3,376 in settlement of the claim.

Commenting on the service she received from Hampson Hughes Solicitors, Ms Neufeld said:

“The service was superb at all times. Friendly and helpful staff, excellent communication and ongoing updates. Thanks for settling my claim.”

£5,071 For Accident Involving a Cyclist

Hampson Hughes Solicitors have successfully represented a cyclist involved in a road traffic accident claim. The claimant, Ms Lunt, was involved in an accident on Seaforth Road in Liverpool. The defendant negligently pulled out of a side road while it was unsafe to do so, colliding with the client’s bike.

Ms Lunt was treated for soft tissue damage and whiplash injuries at Aintree NHS Foundation Hospital and was left with discomfort to her neck, back and the left side of her body.

Compensation in the sum of £5,071 was awarded following the accident.

Ms Lunt positively praised the service she received from Hampson Hughes Solicitors saying:

“Each member of staff handled any queries efficiently and with understanding and patience, which I fully appreciated. This was my first ever claim involving my bike so I’d like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who dealt with my case.”

£3,500 Awarded Following Non Fault Car Accident

Hampson Hughes Solicitors have successfully secured compensation for a client involved in a car accident on Upper Stanhope Street in Liverpool. Ms Lancaster was one of two passengers travelling in a car when another vehicle hit them from behind on the driver’s side.

As a result of the collision Ms Lancaster sustained injuries to her neck and back, which lasted for a period of ten months. She also sustained injuries to her knees, which took eight weeks to recover from.

The third party left the scene, failing to provide their contact details. The firm was therefore unable to claim against the untraced driver. As a result, Hampson Hughes Solicitors pursued a claim via The Motor Insurers’ Bureau which provides compensation in cases against uninsured and untraced drivers.

A total of £3,500 was awarded by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.

Commenting on the service she received from Hampson Hughes Solicitors, Ms Lancaster said:

“Thank you to Hampson Hughes Solicitors for representing me during my claim. I’m really happy with the pay-out I received.”

Uninsured driver jailed for 8 years for causing death by dangerous driving on Liverpool’s Waterfront

A uninsured driver (Bimson, 23) has been jailed for eight years for causing death by dangerous driving.

The court heard that the driver had spent the evening drinking with friends in the Malmaison Hotel before driving uninsured and unlicensed. The driver knocked down the victim (Bradley, 24), an award-winning landscape gardener on Liverpool’s Waterfront, near the Hilton Hotel. The victim was in the city on a stag night, before he was tragically killed on 3rd November 2017.

The driver fled the scene in a BMW 330X accompanied by his passenger, Saddique, 35.

It wasn’t until three days later that the driver handed himself into the police. By then, it was impossible to test his alcohol levels.

It is estimated that the driver was travelling at around 48mph at the time of the impact.

Prosecuting, Mr Snowdon, said ‘’Bradley didn’t stand a chance and was hit at a speed that meant his virtually inevitable’’.

Bimson, was convicted of causing death by driving without a licence and causing death by driving whilst uninsured. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison and disqualified for 12 years.

His passenger, Saddique was jailed for 18 months for aiding and abetting causing death by driving whilst uninsured and disqualified for three years and nine months.
