£75,000 settlement for woman injured in taxi collision


A woman who sustained serious injuries to her wrists in a vehicle collision has secured a settlement of £75,000.

The woman was a passenger in a stationary taxi when a vehicle collided from behind. At the time of the impact, she was in the back of the taxi, leaning forwards with her hands on the seat in front.

She sustained significant injury to her wrists and appointed personal injury specialists at Sintons to handle her claim for compensation against the driver at fault.

David Knipe, an associate in Sintons’ personal injury team, secured a settlement of £75,000.

The team, which handles cases from across the UK, is regularly named by both Legal 500 and Chambers legal guides as one of the best of its kind in the North of England, with its legal capability and client service hailed as being “first class”.

The Claimant said she was delighted with the settlement.

“Whilst I still have to live with my injuries, the settlement achieved now helps me and my family to move on,” she said.

“I am very satisfied with the service I received from Sintons. David Knipe is a great lawyer and the advice he provided was excellent.”

David added: “We are very pleased to have secured this settlement for our client. We rightly have a reputation at Sintons for fighting hard on behalf of our clients to secure the outcomes they need and deserve, as well as enabling them to access the highest standards of therapy and rehabilitation to give them the best possible chance of recovery. We wish our client well for the future.”
