Student involved in accident receives compensation for serious spinal injuries19 Jun 2012
A student who was knocked down by a car on her way to university has received £147,000 in compensation for the serious injuries she sustained.
The car which pulled out in her path hit her causing her to suffer a fractured spine. This resulted in her having to undergo surgery to fuse the spine at the point of the fracture.
At the time of the accident, the student was a keen sportswoman and was studying to become a PE teacher. The accident has forced her to give up her studies and career plans.
The compensation reflects both her past and future losses caused by the accident.
