Woman wins £9m for childhood car accident

A young woman from Norfolk has been awarded more than £9 million in road traffic accident compensation after suffering severe personal injury in a car crash when she was seven years old.

The woman, who is now 23-years-old, was struck by a car in 1996 as she attempted to cross the A1064 in Filby.

The car accident knocked the claimant into the air and caused her to sustain severe brain injuries which put her into a deep coma. Due to the extent of her injuries, she now requires extensive round the clock care.

Now, 11 years since the car crash, a compensation settlement has been reached with insurers.

The High Court heard that the delays in reaching the settlement were down to legal negotiations and changes to the extent of care required by the claimant.

The woman will now receive a £2,875,000 lump payment, followed by annual payments of £191,758 to cover the cost of her extensive care needs for the rest of her life.

The total†road traffic accident compensation†package is believed to be worth more than £9 million.
