Rodney Nelson-Jones has recovered £195,000 in compensation for TV presenter, Victoria Hollingsworth, who was injured whilst filming Channel 4’s ‘A Place in the Sun’ in Spain.
Victoria was travelling in a car being driven by a member of the production company, Freeform Productions Limited, when she was involved in a serious accident. The driver had overtaken a lorry when she lost control and the car left the road, overturned and crashed.
The accident happened in April 2004 when Victoria was 26 years old. She sustained a serious back injury in the accident, which required an operation in a Spanish hospital. Victoria remained in hospital for three weeks, recovering from the operation.
Although she gradually recovered from this injury and in July 2004 returned to work, Victoria still suffers with back pain. In 2007 a hip injury resulting from the accident also flared up. Since then, the injuries have caused Victoria frequent pain and discomfort, making some every day activities a struggle.
Freeform Productions Limited, the production company, conceded 100% liability for the accident, taking responsibility for the negligence of its driver.
The case was set for trial later this year. However agreement was reached at the end of July at a specially convened round table meeting attended by Victoria and the lawyers on both sides.
Victoria’s barrister, William Latimer-Sayer and Rodney Nelson-Jones, negotiated a settlement of £195,000 for Victoria to cover medical treatment and other future costs incurred as a result of her injuries.
