Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Currie was on a pedestrian crossing in Neilston, Renfrewshire, when he was hit by a car and sustained fatal injuries.
The driver of the vehicle was found guilty of causing death by driving carelessly. Gavin’s parents and brother sued the driver’s insurers, who admitted liability but contested the level of damages being sought.
Court of Session judge Lady Wise highlighted the close relationship that existed between Gavin and his family, and awarded compensation for the loss of his society.
She awarded Gavin’s parents £42,000 each and his older brother £22,500.
