Substantial damages for head injury victim

18th February 2010

An elderly woman who sustained serious head and brain injuries when she was knocked over while crossing a road, has received £287,000 in an out of court settlement.

The victim was walking across the road near her home when she was struck by a car one evening in December 2005.

The woman, who was in her mid-sixties at the time, has been left with a catalogue of problems including short-term memory loss, depression, and dizziness.

Martin James, a head injury specialist with Fentons Solicitors, said his client had effectively become a different person as a result of the injuries she sustained.

"It was clear that a care package was needed to try and help my client return to some kind of a normal lifestyle, considering the trauma she had been through and the problems she has been left with," said Martin, a partner with the firm. "Following this settlement, we hope that she can begin to draw some enjoyment from life again."
