James Brewerton lives in Darlington.

When James Brewerton was seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident while crossing the road in Darlington he turned to Hewitts for help.

James, who was 15 years old at the time, suffered a broken hip and shoulder as well as severe ligament damage.

Initially, doctors feared he would lose his leg. Thankfully, that didn’t happen but the trauma left him with walking difficulties.

James said: “Hewitts were fantastic. They were able to lodge a compensation claim and secure me interim payments which made life much easier.”

The money enabled James to buy a car for personal mobility which allowed him to resume his studies. Now recovered from his injuries, James is studying sociology at Sunderland University.

“Dealing with Hewitts was so straightforward,” added James. “They made everything simple and I knew immediately that I was in good hands. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
