Lei was injured in a motor vehicle accident when she was walking to pick her son up from school. Crossing on a green pedestrian light she was hit by a driver who failed to give way because she was distracted. The high speed impact caused a nasty injury to Lei’s neck. Following consultations with two different surgeons and attempts at conservative treatment Lei decided not to undergo major surgery to fuse her spine, hoping that her symptoms might be able to improve with time. Despite her optimism her injury failed to really improve and she was unable to assist with her husband’s business and struggled to raise her two young children. Between the physical injury and mental strain of dealing the changes to her life, Lei found that she was really struggling. She had always wanted to work and had wanted to have another two children but both of these things had to be abandoned as they simply weren’t possible anymore.
Lei contacted our firm and was impressed with Henry immediately. We have had a long working relationship with Lei and have come to know her, her husband and her children throughout the process. She is an example of where time can be your friend in seeking compensation as, though her claim was finalised over five years post-accident, we were able to really drive home the impact the accident had had on Lei. With the amount of evidence we had to put forward the TAC came to realise that Lei had suffered substantial damage and we secured her lump sum compensation of $400,000.
