Amputation victim is determined to ride again

A woman who lost her leg in a collision plans to use her road traffic accident compensation to get back on her bike.

The 22-year-old had been riding her bike on her way to her dance class in Bristol when the car accident took place.

As she crossed a junction she was hit by a supermarket lorry and trapped between a row of parked cars before being thrown into the road and run over. Due to the severity of the personal injuries sustained in the accident she was forced to have her leg amputated.

Two months following the accident the young woman had already made a remarkable recovery, mastering the use of crutches so much so that she set up evening dance lessons.

The legal team for the young woman is currently fighting for compensation after the lorry driver's insurance company admitted liability for the accident.

Any road traffic accident compensation awarded to the young woman will help her pay for a specialised prosthetic limb which will enable her to live a normal life and achieve her goal to ride again.
