Car accident claim launched by injured wife

A Suffolk woman is making a car accident claim for compensation against her husband's insurance firm after a car crash in Scandinavia left her with serious personal injuries.

Sally Baker is making the compensation claim against Swedish insurers Trygg-Hansa Forsakings AB following the January 2004 accident.

Her husband, David, was driving the couple to the airport in readiness to fly back to the UK when he lost control of the Toyota on snowy roads. The vehicle then skidded and collided with an oncoming car.

Among the personal injuries suffered by 52-year-old Mrs Baker in the road accident were a broken pelvis, a fractured vertebrae and severe head injuries.

She spent nearly one month in hospital following the vehicle accident and now suffers from a range of problems including memory loss, mood swings, tinnitus and balance difficulties.

Her car accident claim is for 300,000 and Royal and SunAlliance, the UK agents for the Swedish insurance firm, have not disputed liability for the car crash.

Although Mrs Baker is making the compensation claim against her husband, he will not be financially responsible for paying damages if the case is a success and it will instead be the insurance company that pick up the costs.
