Appeal in Malta hears claims of rescuer negligence

A woman from Malta is going back to court 22 years after a road traffic accident in an attempt to claim more car accident compensation after a collision involving an uninsured driver.

The driver admitted that his negligent driving caused the accident and, at the time of the original claim, the personal injury victim, then 14, was awarded Euro70,000 (approx. £56,000) by the Maltese Motor Insurer Bureau.

In the process of the claim, the claimant signed a waiver preventing her from making any further claim and allowing the Bureau to claim back damages from the driver should he be financially able to do so.

However, the woman has now launched a further claim against the driver and the police for circumstances which allowed the driver to be on the road with a licence when he had no insurance. She has also cited mishandling of her rescue from the crashed car and states that the rescuers failure to secure her with a neck brace exacerbated her spinal injuries.

The woman's team of personal injury solicitors believe her condition warrants a further payment of damages. The car accident compensation appeal is ongoing.
