Brain injury

Car crash compensation received by injured musician

A 41-year-old man, who was seriously injured in an accident in London in 2005, has now received car crash compensation for his personal injuries.

The man, who was a musician prior to the road traffic accident, was in collision with a vehicle while walking across a pedestrian crossing.

He suffered fractures to his skull, causing a brain injury, plus damage to his face, spine and pelvis. Following the accident he was taken to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and remained in a coma for a week. The victim stayed in intensive medical care for a further month.

The man now suffers serious mobility problems, speech difficulties, and psychological and neurological trouble. Sadly, this means that the former musician is now unable to continue playing instruments or sing.

A High Court case for car crash compensation granted the victim £1,137,500 in damages. The motorist involved had been found guilty of drink-driving and was banned from driving for three years while also being fined £400.
