Successful claim for 'hole in the head'

A woman who was hit by a piece of rock that smashed through her windscreen has been awarded £270,000 in car accident compensation.

In 2001 the woman, from Swindon, was travelling along the A419 when the 5lb piece of Cotswold stone broke through her windscreen and onto her head. It left her with a large hole in her head roughly the size of a mandarin, shattered her skull and only narrowly avoided her brain.

She was awarded car accident compensation as the incident left her brain damaged, needing metal plates in her skull and unable to fully express her innermost emotions.

The personal injury solicitor representing her made the car accident compensation claim to the Motor Insurance Bureau as part of the Untraced Drivers Agreement.
