Bus Driver threatened with violence and suffers long term psychological problems to be compensated

We are currently acting for a 43 year old bus driver who has suffered psychological trauma. He was driving his bus when a youth attempted to remove the protective screen separating the driver from his passengers. The youth was clearly intent on inflicting harm on our client.

Our client has suffered a psychological disorder which is preventing him from working. Sadly his marriage has broken up as well.

We have now managed to obtain an admission of liability from our client’s employers who has not provided the updated protective equipment normally used now.  Our client is undergoing regular psychological/ psychiatric rehabilitation therapy arranged by us and we have managed to secure him interim payments to assist him until such time as a financial settlement is reached.
