Road traffic accident leads to £150k damages claim

Road traffic accident leads to £150k damages claim

A road traffic accident which resulted in a child suffering a serious head injury has led to the girl's mother seeking a substantial personal injury compensation settlement.

According to the Herald Express, 15-year-old Morgan Price required an operation at the Frenchay Hospital - which is run by the North Bristol NHS Trust - following an incident in Brixham, Devon, in which the driver of the vehicle she was in travelled too fast and caused it to crash in November 2010.

The writ issued to High Court by the child's mother states that she could develop permanent epilepsy as a direct result of the crash and already suffers from "extreme fatigue and dizziness" as well as requiring round-the-clock care.

Therefore, Julie Dabinett is suing the driver of the car for between £100,000 and £150,000 for her child's ordeal in order to compensate for her pain and suffering and help meet the costs of care.
