M60 motorway crash results in substantial serious injury settlement for hospitalised male

27th March 2019

A 33-year-old male has received almost £34,000 in a serious injury settlement after being hospitalised with a series of injuries when the driver of another vehicle opened a door into oncoming traffic.

Daniel Ellis, was carefully filtering passed queuing vehicles at a slip road exit of the M60 motorway, Junction 23 in Ashton-under-Lyme, when the collision happened. The other party accepted liability for the accident.

Daniel spent four nights in hospital with a string of serious injuries that included a compound fracture of his right knee which required surgery, a fracture of his clavicle and a foot injury.

Daniel was also diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo due to a minor head injury which troubled him for 8-9 months after the accident.

Daniel had to take two months off work following the accident and took many months to return to his normal duties.

Michelle Heyes, Serious Injury – Multi Track Solicitor who represented Daniel said:

“Daniel worked extremely hard towards his recovery from these significant injuries and I’m really pleased to have been able to help him successfully pursue his claim”.
