Baby girl left paralysed by car crash has been awarded £5m

A young girl has been awarded £5m in road traffic accident compensation after suffering severe personal injuries in a car crash caused by a speeding driver.

The girl had been just 11 months old at the time of the car accident. She had been travelling in her parent's vehicle when it was hit head-on by a Range Rover.

The driver of the Range Rover was believed to be driving at 70mph in a 30mph speed zone. He was later convicted of dangerous driving and was sentenced to 21 months in prison but was released under curfew six months into his sentence.

The young girl sustained brain damage as a result of the car crash and has been left paralysed and unable to breath without the use of a ventilator. Due to the severity of her injuries she now requires 24-hour care for the rest of her life.

The family of the girl has agreed to a compensation settlement with the driver's insurers, which is thought to be in the region of £5million. She will also receive annual payments of around £450,000 for the rest of her life to cover the costs of her extensive care.

The road traffic accident compensation was approved at a court in Birmingham.
