Passenger injury compensation news
Polo player's crash claim
Passenger injury compensation is being sought by a young socialite who suffered traumatic fracture to his leg in a road accident that was caused by the negligent driving of a friend.
Accident solicitors representing the 21-year-old's passenger injury compensation claim allege that the crash was entirely the responsibility of the driver, who failed to notice a bend.
The no-win, no-fee claim writ states, "The impact with the tree was so severe the vehicle bounced off and span 180 degrees. The claimant's father found him unconscious in the middle of the road with a blanket over his head. He thought he had died."
Before the accident, the claimant had been a member of the Young England polo team and had hoped to quickly progress to the ranks of the senior team. As a result of the accident, that ambition has been put on hold. However, the player's father says that he hopes that his son will one day "dominate" the sport.
Solicitors representing the passenger injury compensation claim are hoping to secure up to £300,000 for the 21-year-old.
