Fire fighter injured in motor vehicle accident

A 45-year-old fire fighter, who was injured in a car accident in Bristol, has received undisclosed compensation for the injuries he sustained.  Nigel Morley, from Winterbourne in Bristol, was waiting to pick up a friend’s son from the railway station in Swan Lane, when a speeding Peugeot 106 rounded a bend on the wrong side of the road and crashed into his Citroen Dispatch.  Mr Morley sustained whiplash to his back and neck, rendering him unable to walk properly for several weeks.  He was signed off his work for four months and upon his return, was unable to carry out his normal duties.  For the following five months upon returning to work, Mr Morley was assigned only light duties.

Out of court settlement

The accident occurred when police had spotted a youth removing his registration plate at a petrol station, where he had filled up with fuel and omitted to pay.  The young driver had then driven off at speed, pursued by the police car.  The youth was apprehended at the scene, where, luckily enough, Mr Morley’s passenger escaped relatively unharmed.  The young driver was subsequently found guilty of dangerous driving.

Mr Morley appointed solicitors through his trade union to claim compensation from the defendant’s insurers.  His solicitors presented his case to the insurers, pointing out that the client, a fire fighter for 26 years, had sustained serious injuries which still caused him stiffness and pain.  The defendant’s insurers offered to settle out of court and the compensation was accepted.
