Brain damage results in £1m compensation award

Brain damage results in £1m compensation award

A road traffic accident that left a man brain damaged when he was a child has resulted in him being awarded in excess of £1 million in personal injury compensation.

Karl Bauld, who is now 23, was hit by a vehicle in Penhill in August 1994 as a seven-year-old while he played outside with his brother and sustained a serious head injury that left him in a coma for a week.

When Mr Bauld came round, it emerged he has learning difficulties and permanent brain damage as a result of the collision, meaning his mother has had to care for him ever since.

He was in hospital for around a month after the incident and also struggled with amnesia, factors that contributed to his family launching a compensation claim on his behalf.

Recently, Mark Seabrook was awarded a multi-million pound sum following a car accident in 2006 that left him brain damaged.
