Prince Phillip crash claim would be likely to succeed, says CTS solicitor

The woman injured in a car crash with Prince Phillip is considering a claim against the Duke.

Mother of two Emma Fairweather has been left with a broken arm after colliding with the 97-year old Prince’s Land Rover.

She has told media that she is yet to receive even an apology from Philip, but a long-winded statement from a third-party police officer, writing on behalf of the duke.

Emma has reported that she has been advised to remain quiet about the whole situation by Royal assistants.

In addition to this, doctors warn that she may have to take two months off work, provoking the idea of potential legal action.

She said: “I think he should be treated the same as anyone else. How could you say no to prosecuting him if he’s broken the law?”

“It has been such a traumatic and painful time and I would have expected more of the Royal Family.

“It could have been so much worse. Prince Philip apparently said to a witness that it was the sun that dazzled him but I can’t see how that could be true when it was overcast.”

“It would mean the world to me if Prince Philip said sorry but I have no idea if he’s sorry at all.”

Shairoz Ahmed, Head of Personal Injury at Claim Today, explored a hypothetical claim against the Duke: “The driver sustained cuts and bruises to her knee – which would fall under a soft tissue injury she would be entitled to make a claim against Prince Phillip.” 

“The passenger sustained a more serious injury fracture to the wrist and underwent surgery, she may have a loss of earnings claim for time off work, a care and assistance claim for domestic chores etc, she may require additional treatment in the form of physiotherapy treatment, future surgery, future care and assistance and time off work.”

“Dependant on which is her dominate hand and her employment there could be a future loss of earnings claim, dependant on how complicated her recovery is she could be left with permanent disability levels of which may vary.”

“She would be entitled to make a claim against Prince Phillip, and she would be likely to succeed against him.”
