Insurers compensate pedestrian in out-of-court settlement

A man who suffered personal injuries after being struck by a car while walking on the pavement has been awarded road traffic accident compensation.

He had been walking along Eccleshall Road in Sheffield in October 2008 when the car accident took place. The driver involved had lost control of his Audi R8 while travelling along the road and struck another vehicle, causing it to mount the pavement and crash into the pedestrian.

Due to the force of the collision the man was thrown through an adjacent shop window. He was knocked unconscious and rushed to hospital where he spent two weeks recovering from his serious personal injuries.

These included a head injury, and a back injury which still causes him problems and requires chiropractic treatment. He has also been left with scarring due to the fall through the window.

The insurers of the Audi have reportedly paid out road traffic accident compensation to the man in an out-of-court settlement. The amount of the payout has not been reported, but is believed to be in the five-figure region.
