Brain injury settlement

£1.1 million compensation has been awarded to a Tyneside man who suffered a brain injury in a hit-and-run car accident while working in Ireland.

The car accident left the 55-year-old in a coma for six weeks, with brain damage, multiple facial fractures, limb and shoulder injuries and the loss of a large part of his tongue.

The dad-of-six had been engaged in roadside work when he was struck by a vehicle being driven by a drunk driver.

Following resolution of the seven-figure settlement, the claimant's personal injury lawyer said, "I am delighted that we have finally been able to secure the compensation to which he is entitled.

"We will take the necessary steps to place the funds in a trust for the client to ensure he's afforded adequate protection.

"We will also be arranging for a case manager to come on board to put in place an appropriate care regime."

Following two years of fighting for the car accident payout, the drunk driver's insurer agreed to pay the £1.1 million injury compensation.
