Devastating injuries when hit by fire engine
A Court of Appeal ruling led to our client succeeding in a claim for compensation when his car was hit broad-side at a road junction by a fire engine racing to an emergency call.
The traffic lights were in favour of our client and although the fire engine was showing blue lights, it was not using it’s siren. The client suffered very severe head and leg injuries, which prevented him from ever working again. He needed constant care and assistance and his life expectancy was reduced because of his injuries.
A significant settlement was negotiated on the basis of partial blame on his part for failing to see the fire engine. As a direct result of this case, the fire service introduced significant changes to its standard procedures for the use of sirens.
