Mrs Q approached Farleys’ personal injury team to act on her behalf following a road traffic accident.


Mrs Q was a pedestrian crossing a road in Lancashire when she was struck by a vehicle whose driver was not paying proper attention to the road.

Mrs Q was airlifted from the scene of the accident by the air ambulance and was taken to hospital. She had a bleed on her brain so she was kept in hospital as an inpatient for a number of nights before being allowed home.

Mrs Q was extremely fortunate that her physical injuries were relatively minor. Unfortunately, however, the head injury had a significant effect upon her. She had problems with concentration and short-term memory, and the accident had a devastating effect upon her from a psychological point of view. She lost her confidence and was regularly tearful when thinking about the accident.

How Farleys Were Able to Help

Mrs Q instructed Nick Molyneux to act on her behalf as she had previously been a client of his. She had been very pleased by the service she received.

Nick wrote to the insurer of the car who denied liability. However, Nick secured supportive medical evidence for Mrs Q from an orthopaedic surgeon and a neurologist. Nick fought for Mrs Q and despite the initial denial of liability was able to secure a substantial sum of damages for Mrs Q.

Commenting on the case, Nick Molyneux said,

It was a pleasure to win this case for Mrs Q. She was the innocent victim of a careless car driver who did not pay attention to what was going on in front of her. Mrs Q’s life was turned upside down by this accident and, despite the denial of liability, we obtained an excellent outcome.
