Chris Barnes secures high value settlement in fatal case

November 19, 2021

Chris Barnes from Exchange Chambers has recently concluded a fatal road traffic accident claim on behalf of a family who sought assistance following the death of their husband/father (the Deceased).

The Deceased was a Sergeant in the Army. He was driving at night along a dual carriageway when his vehicle collided with a horse in the road. He suffered extensive injuries and tragically died 8 days later from his injuries.

He left a widow and three young children under the age of 10.

A number of reports had been made to the police of there being horses in the road just prior to the accident.  The owner of the horse denied liability throughout.

The claim settled for substantial damages and was approved by the Court.

Chris Barnes was instructed by Sally Richards from Gamlins Solicitors.
