  • Overview

    Mr K was a lorry driver for a joinery company and had been driving a 7.5 tonne lorry at the time of his accident.  He was travelling towards Sevenoaks, Kent from Battle, East Sussex on the A21, when the defendant’s white van drifted over the solid white line on the road and into the path of Mr K’s lorry.

    Mr K applied his brakes but was unable to avoid the head-on collision.  He was trapped in his vehicle at the scene and had to be cut free by emergency services. 

    At court the defendant admitted falling asleep whilst driving and was convicted of driving without due care and attention.  He was disqualified for 6 months and fined.

    At hospital Mr K was diagnosed with a fractured left fibula and sternum.  He was suffered with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression after the accident and was unable to work for 6 weeks.  He gradually returned to work on light duties but continued to suffer with some restricted movement because of his injuries.

    Our specialist personal injury lawyers acting for the claimant successfully obtained an out-of-court settlement of £75,000 to compensate the claimant for their pain and suffering and to pay for their future care needs.
