Devbai Patel, a sixty year old residing in Neasden on Carnfield Avenue, had been struck by a truck that had hit a brick wall after it collided with a Peugot that had been sent careering out of control with its own collision with a Vauxhall on Neasden’s North Circular Road. The freak series of events killed the driver of the truck and injured Mrs Patel, according to the mother of four’s personal injury claims.
In a recent article in the Brent and Kilburn Times newspaper, it was reported that the sixty year old woman sustained serious and life altering injuries due to the accident, including but not limited to several fractured bones and a severe injury to the head with left her with serious brain damage. Thanks to the aid of Kunverji, her husband, Mrs Patel launched a personal injury compensation claim against the insurance provider of the individual who had been driving the Vauxhall at the time the accident was initiated in all its deadly, Rube Goldberg-like glory.
The insurers admitted full liability for the accident and entered into a settlement agreement with Mrs Patel, who received £750,000 in a lump sum payment. The sixty year old mother of four will also receive tax free, index linked payments annually of £25,000 in order to cover the cost of the care she now requires for the remainder of her life.
The Vauxhall’s driver faced criminal charges of causing death by dangerous driving and was convicted of the offence.
