Husband seeking damages after road traffic accident

Husband seeking damages after road traffic accident

Substantial personal injury compensation is being sought by a man on behalf of his wife who was left with brain damage following a road traffic accident.

According to the Shields Gazette, Harry Harman is taking legal action on the grounds that his wife Eleanor will require care for the rest of her life because of the negligence of Margaret Boyles, who crashed into the 59-year-old while she worked as a lollipop lady in February last year.

Ms Boyles has now been found guilty of careless driving in a case at South Tyneside Magistrates' Court for an incident that left Ms Harman unconscious for two days.

She was initially held in intensive care at the Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary - an institution run by the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - before then staying for six months at the Walkergate Park Centre.

Mr Harman told the news source that his wife will "never again be able to live completely independently as a result of someone else's actions".
