Road traffic accident leads to £300k compensation claim

Road traffic accident leads to £300k compensation claim

A claim for compensation of more than £300,000 has been launched by a man who sustained life-changing injuries during a road traffic accident.

According to Your Local Guardian, motorcyclist Dennis Porter was left paralysed when he swerved to avoid two schoolgirls who had strayed into the road in Hackbridge in 2008 and subsequently collided head-on with a van travelling in the opposite direction.

The 60-year-old is now quadriplegic and, his legal documents state, will require care from family members for the rest of his life.

His writ added that he deserves substantial damages for the "catastrophic injuries" he suffered through no fault of his own as the girls - now aged 19 - crossed the road in an unsafe manner and needlessly walked into his path.

This comes after the Basingstoke Gazette reported that Margaret Manners is seeking £300,000 in compensation from John Fowler Holidays for a back injury sustained during a break at a location in Cornwall.
