Australian victim of hit and run 'tremendously grateful' for support and settlement of personal injury claim

Eman Hassan secured a six-figure settlement in a personal injury claim for a cyclist hit by a car driver who left the scene.

Ms M, originally from Australia, was studying law in the UK at the time of the collision, which occurred on her birthday during the pandemic, meaning there was limited support available for her. She was taken to the Royal London Hospital for emergency treatment.

An immediate claim was made under the Untraced Driver's Motor Insurers Bureau Scheme since we did not have the identity of the driver. We obtained agreement for an Initial Needs Assessment under the Rehabilitation Code.

Funding was agreed and support for Ms M was received under the Code, including neuropsychology, neuro occupational therapy and private tuition. This was really important for Ms M to provide her with the support to get through her exams on her way to graduation.

Eman worked collaboratively with the MIB and obtained medico-legal evidence to understand our client's future prognosis, help her continue with her studies and maximise her quality of life.

Following settlement, Ms M said:

'Having a serious accident during the Covid pandemic on the other side of the world from my family and support networks was really tough. But I feel extremely lucky that Eman was recommended to me. She was very supportive and helped to implement a comprehensive care plan in collaboration with a team of professionals.

'Eman was very sympathetic and approachable. She was also very thorough and clear. I felt able to trust her experience and professionalism in negotiating a fair settlement.

'It was such a relief to feel that she was looking out for me – in terms of securing rehabilitation and  finalising a settlement, but also feeling that she genuinely cared on a personal level.

'I am tremendously grateful to her for all she did for me and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her.'
