Sergeant's family seek compensation for her car crash injuries

The family of a police officer who has been left in a coma is seeking £300,000 in car accident compensation.

The 41-year-old police sergeant had been driving through Hellingly in Eastbourne, September 2010, when a trailer from a Land Rover became detached and crashed into her vehicle.

The woman was airlifted to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel where she spent several months. She was later diagnosed with a severe brain injury and was moved to a specialised care unit in Salisbury.

The officer has remained in a coma ever since the car accident and requires around-the-clock care as a result of her personal injuries.

The woman's family has now launched a claim for car accident compensation against the driver of the Land Rover, claiming that he had been negligent by failing to properly secure the trailer to his vehicle.

The car accident compensation claim is expected to be heard at the High Court in London.
