Serious / Complex Trauma

For the injured party nothing will ever be the same again. For family and friends, the shock and anguish can be equally traumatic leaving in its wake a tumult of grief, anger and a sense of helplessness.

At Hilary Meredith Solicitors, we understand that serious/complex trauma can have a devastating emotional and financial impact for the person injured and those close to them. We provide emotional support and clear thinking at a time of bewilderment and uncertainty for lives that are often changed beyond recognition. Our experience of handling serious/complex trauma claims has allowed us to build up an unparalleled wealth of knowledge, expertise and experience that is at the entire disposal of our clients.

Our award winning serious/complex trauma solicitors are proud of their ability to offer practical help, answering urgent questions, helping the injured person to obtain financial assistance (through the benefit system and/or through securing interim payments for housing, aids and equipment, therapy or prosthetics) and providing expert legal representation to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for the trauma.

As your interests come first we will fight to ensure that the best outcome is achieved so that proper compensation is paid to cover your needs and your family’s needs including the best possible specialist medical care, rehabilitation, enhanced mobility and the satisfaction of specialist requirements like purchasing a suitable new home and adapting it to meet your needs, therapy and transport. In other words our aim is to restore quality of life and to maximise independence and we will fight for you to achieve this.

Dianne Yates and the team at Hilary Meredith Solicitors acted for a child who sustained life threatening and life changing injuries in a road traffic accident.

Significant interim payments were received alongside a full case management, support and rehabilitation package. The case ultimately settled for £12.1 million.

£7.8 million for pedestrian hit by car

In a high-profile case Dianne Yates acted for a pedestrian who sustained severe, life threatening and life changing injuries after being hit by a car.

The pedestrian stepped out between vehicles and was struck by the oncoming car. Liability was denied and case proceeded to trial.  At first instance, contributory negligence was found as against the claimant but the case was appealed to the Court of Appeal where the pedestrian was successful leading ultimately to an award of £7.8 million.
