  • Overview

    Graham Bell, specialist personal injury lawyer based at Thomson Snell & Passmore’s Tunbridge Wells Office, has secured over £35,000 for a back-seat passenger who was injured in a road traffic accident after his lap seatbelt tore into his small bowel causing a pelvic abscess and peritonitis.

    The claimant was a 25 year old man who had been a passenger seated in the middle back seat of his friend’s car. He had had a lap seatbelt on during the journey.

    The defendant had been driving a vehicle in the opposite direction and as the defendant came around a corner at speed, he skidded across the path of the claimant’s friend’s car causing them to collide.

    The impact caused the claimant’s seatbelt to dig deeply into his abdomen. He had severe abdominal pains and some minor aches and pains in his right arm with numbness in his right hand.

    Initial scans did not reveal the extent of the claimant’s injuries and he was thought to have a rectal haematoma, however after his abdominal pains continued he was diagnosed 11 days after the accident with a tear to his small bowel which had leaked and caused an intra-abdominal abscess which in turn had developed into peritonitis. The claimant required surgery and made a slow recovery over the space of five months.

    The claimant also suffered with psychiatric symptoms following the accident, including nightmares, flashbacks and nervousness when travelling by car. He was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder and required psycho-therapy treatment.

    After obtaining a number of expert opinions we were able to obtain a settlement of over £35,000 for the claimant to compensate him for the pain and suffering he had endured following the accident which had been caused by the negligence of the defendant.
