Woman wins compensation claim after losing leg in accident

A 38-year-old mother from Wigan, who lost her leg in a road accident, has won a compensation claim for her injuries.

The woman was walking her dogs in February 2007 when she began to cross a road and was struck by a car.

She was taken to hospital to be treated for her injuries, but doctors were unable to prevent a number of problems, such as infections, from occurring during treatment to her broken right leg.

As a result the limb had to be amputated six months after the incident.

Furthermore, it has been reported that she underwent 21 surgical procedures following the accident, in which she also suffered a broken nose and severe facial bruising.

The driver's insurer refused to admit liability for the accident, however, just before the case was due to go to trial, the defendant made an offer to split liability.

The woman has now secured a £90,000 payout in the compensation claim which will give her financial security and help her move on with her life.
