David was a front seat passenger in a vehicle being driven by his best friend. He was accompanied by two other friends who were back seat passengers.
The four boys were travelling back from a party when the driver lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle then struck the pillar of a gateway leading to the driveway of a residential property.
Davids best friend was sadly killed as a result of the accident and David sustained life changing injuries, including a fractured pelvis, significant maxillofacial damage and kidney damage. The maxillofacial injuries were particularly complex and required carefully orchestrated multi-disciplinary treatment. David had been due to sit his AS levels in June 2012, but required various operations and so had to postpone these by a year.
Fieldfisher assisted David with his personal injury claim and were able to settle his claim for a substantial amount in April 2015.
“David suffered serious facial injuries as a result of his accident and it was important that we worked closely with the right experts in order to ensure that he received the best treatment possible, in order to maximise his recovery.
Maxillofacial injuries can be complex and far reaching. In this particular case input was required from a number of different experts including a maxillofacial surgeon, temporomandibular expert, a consultant in restorative dentistry, a neurologist and a consultant ophthalmologist. It was vital that we explored his injuries and long term consequences in full.”
“Knowing that I had such an outstanding experienced team working on my case gave me real peace of mind.”
