Woman to seek over £500k compensation after being hit by car

Woman to seek over £500k compensation after being hit by car

A woman is pursuing more than half a million pounds in compensation for injuries she sustained during a road traffic accident.

According to the Salisbury Journal, Diana Turan suffered two broken legs and a severe brain injury when she was hit by a car in an incident in September 2008 and has consequently decided to pursue damages of over £500,000 after issuing a High Court writ.

Ms Turan was hit by a car on the side of the A303 dual carriageway - which links many major conurbations throughout the south-west - near Bullington Cross after she stopped to inspect her own vehicle, which she suspected was on the verge of breaking down.

The claimant subsequently had to spend three months in hospital receiving treatment for her injuries and left the medical institution requiring the use of a zimmer frame and wheelchair.

She now still suffers from issues such as cognitive difficulties and double vision, despite undergoing extensive rehabilitation therapy.
