HGV driver receives injury compensation award after road accident

An HGV driver who ended up in plaster when his vehicle crashed onto its side has successfully claimed injury compensation.  The accident was investigated by the police who found that injured driver was not at fault, and that the vehicle’s owners had failed to properly maintain it.

Despite the haulage company’s attempts to fight the injury compensation claim, a settlement was agreed out of court with the driver receiving a sum of £5,000 in respect of his injuries and loss of income, in addition to his legal costs being paid in full.
