A seven-figure sum of personal injury compensation has been awarded in to a woman following a devastating road traffic accident.
According to The Echo, the unnamed 48-year-old female is now confined to a wheelchair and needs round-the-clock care after a head-on collision in Basildon in December 2009.
The cleaner had to be taken to Queen's Hospital in nearby Romford via air ambulance for life-saving medical attention after the crash, which occurred when an elderly man - who died at the scene - drove straight into her.
This undisclosed amount of money, which is known to run into the millions, has been awarded in order to help her financially, as she will never be able to work again.
Her son told the news source: "Cognitively, our mum was unaffected, so her awareness and her lovely character are intact ... we're just relieved the process has finally come to an end."
This comes after Benjamin Woodham was awarded between £2 million and £3 million in damages after a road traffic accident, Bury Free Press reported.
