Injury Claim for Pedestrian knocked down crossing the road in West Yorkshire

How was Mrs R affected by the injury?

Mrs R was a 47-year-old pedestrian from Huddersfield who was injured early one morning when, as she crossed the road in Dalton, Huddersfield. She had approached junction and was close to the middle of the same when a vehicle turned off an adjoining road and struck her on her right upper arm knocking her to the ground.  Mrs R was crossing the junction some distance into the junction and had taken 4 or 5 steps into the road before being struck.

What happened on the day of the accident?

After our client had composed herself, she was able to get up but was aware that her arm had dropped and her arm became painful.

She was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary’s Accident and Emergency Department where X-Rays revealed she had suffered a right proximal humerus.  Her right arm was elevated in a sling and she was discharged home.  She returned to the fracture clinic 2 days later when it was decided she needed an operation to best treat her injury.  She was fitted with plates and screws. She also required a further operation which further assisted her and greatly improved her condition.

Unfortunately, due to these injuries, Mrs R was unable to work for 4 months. After the second operation, she was off work for a further 6 weeks.
