Settlement secured within six months of instruction for devastated family of cyclist killed on road

Lorraine was cycling to work when an HGV turned left across her path and collided with her. Tragically, she died at the scene.

Lorraine’s husband and daughter were left devastated by the loss of a mother and wife. Her daughter described her mother as “a ray of sunshine who had an impact on everywhere she went and everyone she met”. Her death has left a huge hole in the lives of her loved ones.

Lorraine’s husband instructed Jennifer Buchanan in October 2014, in relation to the personal injury claim arising from his wife’s death, and the claim was settled within just six months.

Jennifer Commented:

“Lorraine’s family were understandably devastated by her death. They were an extremely close family and naturally struggled to cope with what happened.

It was clear to me straight away that it was in the family’s best interests to work to conclude this claim swiftly, so that they could attempt to move on with their lives. Luckily, the Defendant’s solicitors took this on board and I was able to work closely with them to negotiate a favourable settlement for the family within just a few months.

Whilst no amount of money will truly compensate the family for what they have lost, the damages recovered for them will help to provide them with financial security for the future.”

Lorraine’s husband went on to say:

“Jenny thank you once again for the way you have supported and guided us in a most professional way during a very difficult time for me and my daughter, you have been an absolute star and we cannot thank you enough, you are a lovely and very genuine person and a real credit to your profession”
