Man hit by taxi in Abu Dhabi
Mr M.S was working in Abu Dhabi as an engineer, involved in building roller coaster rides at the time of his accident.
Mr M.S was crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing when he was struck by a taxi. He suffered fractures to his right leg and left hip as well as bruising to his head and a cut above his eyebrow.
He was unable to return to work then was subsequently diagnosed with cancer.
Mr M.S instructed his own lawyers to pursue a claim and was awarded a modest level of damages. Irwin Mitchell became involved to assist with an appeal. This proved to be successful and a greater sum of damages was awarded.
Unfortunately, Mr M.S was diagnosed with cancer and it was his wish to secure funds for his wife and the appeal was abandoned.
After a very long and trying process, Irwin Mitchell was finally able to recover damages for his widow. A 5 figure sum after costs were deducted enabling her to remain in the family home.
