Road traffic accident leads to £2.5m compensation

Road traffic accident leads to £2.5m compensation

A seven-figure compensation sum has been awarded to a man who suffered life-changing injuries during a road traffic accident.

According to the Leicester Mercury, Sam Boreham sustained permanent brain damage at the age of eight when he was involved in an incident on the M1 motorway near Lutterworth in 1998.

Sam was a passenger - along with his twin brother Ben and mother Jane - in a vehicle heading north to watch a Manchester United game when the car collided with a stationary vehicle.

His mother then took legal action against the driver of the car they were in at the time and a case heard at London's High Court has now ruled that the man is entitled to damages of £2.5 million to pay for the care he will need for the rest of his life.

This figure will be granted in a £1.1 million lump sum, followed by periodic payments of £23,000.
