Wheelchair-bound woman seeks £300k damages

Wheelchair-bound woman seeks £300k damages

Personal injury compensation of more than £300,000 is being pursued by a motorcyclist left wheelchair-bound after a road traffic accident.

According to the Hounslow Chronicle, Nerys Pearce has served a writ to the High Court in London claiming she developed complex regional pain syndrome in both legs as a direct result of a collision in Feltham, west London, in October 2008.

Ms Pearce believes the incident was caused due to the negligence of Sharen Miles, whose car hit her as she attempted to turn right through traffic when leaving her home even though it was not safe to do so.

The 30-year-old sustained whiplash and other injuries to her left leg and right arm, but has since been diagnosed with the chronic condition that has left her legs swollen and in severe pain.

Consequently, she is seeking a six-figure damages settlement from Ms Miles and has now taken her legal action to the High Court for resolution.
