York student seeks personal injury payout after being hit by a car

A man from York, who was in involved in a car crash which killed two of his friends, is hoping to receive thousands of pounds in a personal injury payout.

The 23-year-old student was walking with friends on New Year's Day in 2010 when a car mounted the curb and struck the group.

The driver fled the scene and was later sentenced to seven years in prison for two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, two counts of causing grievous bodily harm by dangerous driving, and one count of causing bodily harm by wanton and furious driving.

It has been reported that the student suffered multiple injuries including fractures to his jaw, arm, skull, as well as a severe traumatic brain injury. The man claims he cannot remember the incident after suffering amnesia when he came round from his coma.

The man required skilled surgery to repair his shattered skull and was finally able to return to his studies at university last year after months of surgery and rehabilitation.

Reports show that the man is hoping to receive a personal injury payout of £300,000 in the claim.
