A man injured in a hit-and-run accident is set to receive a multi-million pound road traffic accident compensation payout.
Daniel Ince suffered massive brain damage after being knocked down when crossing a road, and after a six-year battle will soon be paid road traffic accident compensation, the Ealing Gazette reported.
Although the driver of the BMW that hit Mr Ince did not stop, the incident was witnessed by a fireman who was able to identify the man behind the wheel and became a key witness in efforts to secure a road traffic accident compensation payout.
The road traffic accident compensation case was set to go before the High Court, but moments before it was due to be heard, the driver’s insurance company agreed to settle the matter on the basis of 75 per cent liability and the deal was approved by a judge.
Although it is not yet clear how large the road traffic accident compensation payout will be, it is expected to run into the millions of pounds because of the severity of Mr Ince’s injuries.
Speaking about the battle for personal injury compensation, Mr Clarke’s solicitor said: “Daniel has been fully supported by his loving family. It has taken six years to get to this point today.
“Sadly, Daniel continues to suffer from life-changing and tragic injuries for which he will continue to receive in-patient treatment. His family would like to see justice done.”
Mr Ince will never be able to work or care for himself again and is still living in a brain injury rehabilitation unit and the size of his road traffic accident compensation payout will reflect this.
However, unless the road traffic accident compensation payout is agreed before hand, there will have to be another court hearing before the final amount is settled upon.
Judge Roger ter Haar, who approved the liability settlement, pointed out that although this part of the case had been agreed there were “quite a number of issues” to be resolved before the final road traffic accident compensation payout is agreed.
Anyone who has been injured in a similar manner can claim road traffic accident compensation as long as they were not to blame for the incident.
