PTSD and personal injuries should mean compensation

A mother of three, who has been left with serious personal injuries and alleged post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following a car accident, has vowed to lodge a formal complaint with the Crown Prosecution Service and seek car accident compensation after the court handed down a £90 fine and six-penalty points to the at-fault driver.

The 30-year-old woman from Witney, near Oxford, had been hit by the driver during a trip to her local Sainsburys. Her right shin bone was shattered and required extensive surgery, while her left leg suffered two breaks.

In Banbury Magistrate's Court, the 66-year-old driver pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention and the CPS dropped charges in relation to failing to stop after an accident and failing to report an accident.

The personal injury victim said after the court case, "[The driver] has completely got away with it.

"The punishment she has got has had no impact on her life whatsoever. I was not hoping for anything like a massive fine or prison sentence but I was expecting at least a ban."

As the driver has admitted liability for the accident, it is now possible that the accident victim and her family will be able to successfully claim car accident compensation with the help of a personal injury lawyer.
