Personal injury compensation specialists recently reported that a car accident claim was recently launched by a twenty four year old Londoner after he was paralysed from the neck down in the wake of a tragic road accident.
Chingford native, Adam Smith, of Longshaw Road, was riding in the front seat as a passenger in a vehicle driven by his business partner and best friend Joe Slater at the time of the accident that precipitated the personal injury claim. Mr Slater, aged twenty three, had lost control of the vehicle, which then careered into a wall in Beckton, Greater London, after leaving the road.
Mr Slater lost his life in the tragic accident. Mr Smith meanwhile sustained major injuries to his spine, leaving him in a state of paralysis from the neck down. One additional passenger in the rear seat has made a full recovery after suffering injuries to their back and pelvis, however.
In the wake of the incident, Mr Smith has decided to launch a claim for road traffic accident personal injury compensation against the insurance company that provided cover for Mr Slater’s car. Mr Smith’s legal representation has claimed that at the time of the accident, Mr Slater had been travelling at excessive speed and without due attention and care.
A representative speaking on behalf of Mr Smith recently commented that the two men had not only been business partners in their own car valeting company but had also been very close. However the spokesperson stated that the injuries sustained by Mr Smith in the accident had been severe, requiring specialised urgent care both now and in the future.
Mr Smith’s legal team was confident that their efforts would result in securing the paralysed man the funds which he would need to have that care provided to him.
