Pensioner seeking compensation after being hit by scooter

Pensioner seeking compensation after being hit by scooter

An elderly woman is seeking a personal injury compensation settlement after sustaining broken bones during an incident in which she was hit by a mobility scooter.

Audrey King was struck by the vehicle being controlled by a disabled woman while shopping and consequently suffered a fractured thigh bone and a broken hip, according to the Daily Mail.

The 70-year-old is now pursuing damages from the driver after spending a period of six days in hospital before being allowed home and has also called on the Department of Transport - which is headed by Philip Hammond - to reclassify the scooters to make it compulsory for owners of them to be insured against injuries to third parties.

"It is going to take me two years to recover from this injury. I face a long, hard road to rehabilitation - all to get back to where I was before she hit me," Mrs King noted.
