Accountancy student hit by car awarded almost half a million pounds damages

GEOFFREY Leaver won £450,000 compensation for an accountancy student whose career earnings were seriously damaged when he was injured after being struck by car.

D was in his first year at university when he suffered a serious head injury after stepping out in front of traffic in Central Milton Keynes.

Although he admitted partial blame, the student’s ability to qualify as an accountant was damaged. He secured a lower degree than anticipated and was unable to obtain a training contract, forcing him to switch careers to marketing.

The driver of the car disputed that the student would have qualified as an accountant and alleged that he would not lose any earnings in his new marketing job.

However, this was not accepted and the case was settled on the basis that our client sustained a reduction in his earning capacity as a consequence.
