High Court to hear brain injury claim

Personal injury lawyers representing a 21-year-old woman who suffered brain damage in a 2006 road accident have lodged a claim for car crash injury compensation at the High Court.

The East Grinstead woman, who was still a teenager at the time of the accident, suffered car crash injury, facial injuries and multiple fractures when a passenger in the car of a friend who lost control of his vehicle as he attempted to perform a handbrake stop at 55 mph.

During a hearing at Guildford Crown Court in May 2007 the driver was convicted of driving without due care and attention, receiving a £1,500 fine and an 18-month driving ban.

The car crash injury compensation writ states that the claimant is now being cared for by her parents and, as a result of her injuries, is nearly blind, suffers epilepsy, experiences cognitive difficulties and may never be able to live independently.

Any car crash injury compensation settlement would likely include a sum for the trauma the claimant experienced in being hospitalised for eight weeks following the accident.
