Compensation of £2.2m sought after accident
A seven-figure compensation settlement is being sought by a woman who sustained life-changing injuries during a road traffic accident.
According to Wigan Today, Joanne Dunhill suffered a serious head injury when she was hit by a motorcycle while crossing the A635 highway in Barnsley in June 1999.
The woman originally accepted damages of £12,500 for her ordeal from the motorcyclist's insurance company in 2003 but is now looking to re-open the case at the Court of Appeal on the grounds that she was not mentally fit to make an informed decision at that time.
Her writ claims she sustained a significant "personality change" as a result of this collision, meaning she has not been awarded sufficient compensation for the severity of her injuries.
Therefore, Ms Dunhill is now pursuing a second settlement of some £2.2 million.
Recently, Leigh Ann Blinkthorn was awarded more than £9 million for the serious injuries she suffered in a car accident as a child.
