Bus passenger left disabled in collision

A bus passenger from Sheffield has launched a £300,000 road traffic accident claim after suffering severe personal injuries which have left him partially disabled.

The 68-year-old man had been attempting to get off a bus he had been travelling on to Sheffield's city centre when the vehicle was involved in a collision with a lorry, causing the passenger to be thrown to the floor.

The accident caused the man to suffer a severe neck fracture, which has left him partially paralysed.

The personal injuries were so serious that the pensioner had to undergo hospital treatment for six months at the Northern General Hospital and then later at the specialised spinal unit in Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

A High Court writ reported that the man still suffers from pain, severe spasticity, and requires various aids and equipment to help him function as normal.

Due to the life-changing effects of the accident, the claimant has since been forced to leave his own bungalow and now resides at a care home, where he receives daily assistance.

The man has launched a road traffic accident claim against the company which owned the lorry, after its driver was fined £2,000 and found guilty of driving without due care and attention.
