Woman seeking £300k after bus accident

Woman seeking £300k after bus accident

A woman is seeking a six-figure compensation sum after sustaining a serious head injury when she fell through the doors of a moving minibus.

According to the South Wales Evening Post, Natasha Flockhart is taking legal action on the grounds she can no longer look after herself due to the extent of the brain injuries she suffered during the incident in Blaenymaes in June 2008.

The 20-year-old's writ served to the High Court claims she fell through the doors when she got up to accept a bottle of Lucozade from the driver just as he crossed over a speed bump.

She subsequently landed on the road and was taken to hospital in a deep coma, which has left her with severe post-traumatic migraines and at risk of developing epilepsy in the future.

The document accuses driver Julian Bowles of negligence on the grounds he was travelling too quickly and without due care and attention.
