Serious accidents leaves client with life changing injuries

On the 10th October 2012, Mr Ervin was involved in an accident that would change his life forever. Employed as a mechanic, Mr Ervin was driving a work van when he applied the brakes only to find they failed and the van was propelled further forwards. The van crashed into a road sign and Mr Ervin was hospitalised for two weeks with a spinal injury that left him paralysed from the hips down.

Following the accident, Mr Ervin’s life was transformed and he began a long road of rehabilitation. The injury affected every aspect of Mr Ervin’s life and he fought hard to readjust in the following months and years.

Gary Wright, senior accident at work specialist here at Russell Worth, represented Mr Ervin in a claim for personal injury. Given the severity of the injury there was much to consider, not just the injury itself. Consideration needed to be given to Mr Ervin’s future medical needs, care requirements, medical needs, housing and transport needs to mention a few.

There were many experts involved in the running of Mr Ervin’s case including medical experts, mechanical experts and barristers. All of this work was carried out on a no win no fee basis. Gary put an insurance policy in place, which protected Mr Ervin against costs should his claim be unsuccessful.

Thankfully, Mr Ervin won his case against his former employer – despite them denying liability at the outset. Gary was delighted to secure Mr Ervin an award of £1.6 million for his pain, suffering and future medical needs. Knowing he has the means to meet his future care needs has given Mr Ervin peace of mind. Mr Ervin has now retrained as a fitness instructor and has plans to move to a new house which will be much more suitable to his needs.

Commenting on the case Mr Ervin said the following: “Absolutely fantastic solicitors always on the ball kept me informed all the time I was never left wondering had a very personal experience with these guys would recommend them to anyone 5star is not enough for these guys.”
