Car passenger to be awarded compensation for crash injuries

A man from Berkshire is seeking £300,000 in road traffic accident compensation after sustaining severe personal injuries when the car he was travelling in crashed into a wall to avoid a collision.

The 32-year-old had been travelling as a front seat passenger in a friend's Vauxhall Vectra when the car accident took place.

The two men had been approaching a T-junction along the A340 near Theale when a car pulled out in front of them. The driver of the Vauxhall veered out of the way in an attempt to avoid the crash but lost control of his vehicle and smashed into a wall.

The passenger suffered serious injuries including a fractured leg and dislocated knee. He has also developed travel anxiety as a result of the accident which is being treated by a specialist in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

The injured man has since launched a claim for compensation against the driver of the other vehicle, claiming that he had not been driving with due care and attention.

Insurers for the driver have admitted liability for the car crash but it has not yet been agreed how much road traffic accident compensation will be paid out.
