Pensioner paralysed in road traffic accident pursues compensation
Life-changing injuries sustained during a road traffic accident have led to a pensioner seeking in excess of £300,000 in compensation.
According to the Sheffield Star, David Horsfield was left partially paralysed when the double decker bus he was about to disembark in Sheffield city centre in December 2009 was struck by a lorry owned by Hovis.
The impact of this collision caused the 68-year-old to suffer a fractured neck and with other health issues, such as depression and a form of post-traumatic stress disorder and he is subsequently seeking damages from the food manufacturer, which was established in the 19th century.
Mr Horsfield's writ issued to the High Court indicated that he had to spend six months in hospital following the crash and he now requires extensive care due to his "pain, severe spasticity and spasms".
Furthermore, the man stated he also endures insomnia, irritability and sadness as a direct result of the accident.
