£75,000 settlement for North Hampshire motorist after vehicle pulled out of driveway and caused serious accident

4th June 2019

A 29-year-old male has received £75,000 in a serious injury settlement after another vehicle pulled out of a driveway and caused a road traffic accident.

Chris Lee was driving past stationary traffic on Mulfords Hill in Tadley North Hampshire when another vehicle pulled out of a driveway and caused the collision.

Chris, 27 at the time of the incident, was admitted to Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital where Chris’ injuries included:

  • A fracture to right radius
  • Fracture to right elbow and humerus
  • Bruising to right wrist
  • Testicular contusion and haematoma
  • Soft tissue damage to thighs and scarring on his arm

Fletchers Solicitors Multi Track Solicitor Dale Bickerstaffe and Assistant Fee Earner Ceri Dudley represented Chris.

Ceri said:

“Chris was extremely helpful when it came to pursuing his claim and it was rewarding for us to see the recovery he made and the award he received at the end, especially after undergoing a difficult time following the accident.

“Chris was a pleasure to work with and we wish him all the best in the future.”

At the time of the incident, Chris worked as a laser technician but due to the severity of the injuries sustained, he has changed career and become a production supervisor.

Following the incident, Chris underwent open reduction internal fixation of his arm and elbow and required subsequent surgery to remove metalwork in April 2018.

Speaking in reflection of Chris’ experience with Fletchers, he said:

“Everyone I have dealt with has been brilliant at keeping me in the loop and answering any questions.”
