Paralysed man to make car accident compensation claim

A 27-year-old man from Stockton is to make a claim for £300,000 in car accident compensation after suffering serious personal injuries.

The man had been travelling as a passenger in a vehicle when it hit an embankment and came off the road, rolling over several times.

The incident caused the man to suffer severe injuries to his spine, leaving him paralysed from the neck down.

The victim has now launched a car accident compensation claim against the driver and her insurers, stating that the accident was caused by a lack of due care and attention

A High Court writ has revealed that due to the injuries sustained in the accident the man's life expectancy has been reduced and he is unlikely to ever work again. The man is also at a high risk of developing a cyst on his spine which could result in a deterioration of his condition.

Scarborough Magistrates' Court heard the defendant admit to driving without due care and attention. She was fined £150 and awarded six penalty points on her licence.

It is believed that the claimant is seeking £300,000 in car accident compensation along with an order which will allow him to return to court should his condition deteriorate.
