Frenchman driving on the wrong side of road causes car crash

A woman has been awarded a five figure sum in car accident compensation, after a car driving on the wrong side of the road crashed into her vehicle.

The 79-year-old retired teacher from Worcester in the West Midlands had been travelling on a B-road between Ludlow and Leominster when her vehicle was in collision with a French motorist's vehicle driving on the wrong side of the highway.

The accident caused her to suffer severe personal injuries, including several broken bones and fractures, and a pneumothorax (collapsed lung). The woman was air lifted to Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham where she underwent emergency surgery to fit a brace into her skull, in order to keep her neck in place.

The woman alleges that she still suffers from the injuries sustained in the accident and has since become a lot more dependent on her family.

The insurers of the French driver have awarded the woman car accident compensation, thought to be a five figure sum, in an out-of-court settlement.
