The client was a pedestrian walking along a pavement when he was deliberately run down by a motorist, following an earlier unprovoked altercation in a public house. The driver was identified and arrested by the police and subsequently convicted and imprisoned. Unfortunately the driver was uninsured but the claim was accepted by the Motor Insurers Bureau and dealt with under the Uninsured Drivers Agreement. The injuries sustained were serious and caused significant disruption to the claimant’s employment. Although the claimant was self-employed and unable to document his income, the claim was negotiated to settlement.
