Driver disputes teenager's claim for compensation

A teenage girl is seeking road traffic accident compensation after suffering personal injuries when she was struck by a car while walking along the side of a road.

The 16-year-old schoolgirl had been walking along Abthorpe Road on a December evening, close to her home in Silverstone, when she was hit by a passing car three years ago.

She suffered serious injuries in the incident, including a broken collarbone, damage to her lungs and head injuries, which left her with severe disabilities.

With the help of her family the girl has launched a compensation claim against the driver, claiming that he had been negligent by driving too fast for the conditions.

The insurers for the driver are disputing the claim, arguing that he had not been at fault as the girl was not wearing reflective safety garments and the motorist could not have been expected to see her.

The case is still ongoing, but if the girl is successful in her claim for road traffic accident compensation, it is expected that she will be entitled to a large settlement.
