Loss Of Brother In Car Accident Devastates Older Sister


Recently, the litigation team here at Taylor & Scott acted for a lady whose younger brother was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident. The family was extremely close. The accident has had a devastating effect on our client who continues to suffer to this day. There is not a day goes by when our client doesn’t think of her younger brother and the tragic circumstances of his death.

As a result of this accident, our client has developed a severe chronic depression and post- traumatic stress disorder. She continues to suffer from a depressed mood, has very little interest in day to day activities, suffers from panic attacks, has low energy and is easily fatigued. Many days, she neglects her personal health and that of her family.

As a result of her medical condition, she has attended many doctors and therapists. She requires ongoing treatment including medication and mental health management. Prior to her young brother’s death, our client had successfully reared her own children and was looking forward to re-entering the workforce. She has a loving husband who continues to support her.

Having consulted the litigation team here at Taylor & Scott, following a free case assessment and the obtaining of numerous medical reports, it was decided that an action for Nervous Shock should be brought against the greenslip insurer of the motor vehicle that caused the accident.

Prior to the matter coming on for hearing in the court, Ivan Simic, Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury, and his team negotiated a very substantial lump sum settlement on behalf of his client. This settlement ensures that his client will have the funds to assist her with the ongoing medical care that she will require for the rest of her days.
